Several factors, primarily the closure of shopping malls, restaurants, sports centers, hotels, and other public areas, will restrict the market growth and reduce the demand for Wi-Fi analytics solutions across the globe. However, the industry is projected to experience a revival in its growth in the coming years, due to the rising need of organizations to increase their revenue and counter the damages they suffered due to the COVID-19 crisis. Furthermore, the integration of advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and internet of things (IoT), will further boost the Wi-Fi analytics market in the coming years.
