The analysts forecast the LBS market in APAC region to grow at a CAGR of 32.98 percent over the period 2013-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing adoption of location-enabled devices in China and Southeast Asian countries. The LBS market in the APAC region has also been witnessing the increasing demand for free LBS applications. However, the lack of knowledge about LBS among users could pose a challenge to the growth of this market. 

The report, the LBS Market in the APAC Region 2014-2018, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the APAC region; it also covers the LBS market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

Encouraged by the increasing popularity of LBS, many mobile application developers are developing free LBS applications. Moreover, numerous small LBS application developers are entering the LBS market in China and Southeast Asia with innovative LBS applications at very nominal charges or almost free of charge. Furthermore, with several advanced features and location-based mapping technology, most of the location-based/oriented searches are being provided free of charge by the LBS providers. 

For instance, Foursquare, one of the most popular social networking applications in India, uses geo-tagging technology, which helps subscribers to find the address of various places such as pubs, bars, and restaurants in their vicinity accurately for free. Similarly, the adoption of several free LBS social media applications is higher than any other LBS application which charges the users.
