Latin America boasts a vibrant business environment shaped by several factors such as a young population, abundant resources, a growing consumer base, strong trade relationships, and a growing startup space. With twice the population of the United States and about half of China's GDP, the region offers limitless opportunities for businesses to overcome barriers.

While the COVID-19 pandemic has caused tremendous pain in the region, it has accelerated the digitization and adoption of new technologies by organizations across Latin America. The exponential growth is that mobile devices are the primary means of internet access in Latin America, providing people living in rural areas a portable way to connect to the internet.

In recent years, the boom in social media and the rise of messaging platforms have increased the demand for optimized mobile services. Mobile penetrates Latin America, fostering innovative applications that enhance social mobility, financial control, access to foreign markets, and social development. Differences in maturity levels and local regulations define the mobile landscape in individual countries but tend to be notable across regions.

Some economic, demographic, and natural resource factors are driving the rise of Latin America as multinationals formulate their real estate portfolio strategies. Facility management firms such as Newmark Knight Frank's Latin America Global Corporate Services help multinational organizations identify and evaluate corporate real estate opportunities in the region and explore local markets and cultures.

Location intelligence reveals often-overlooked relationships between big data sets and turns these insights into valuable business intelligence. Also, it helps provide critical business decisions and helps in the development of smart cities.

Further, the U.S. Department of Commerce monitored Brazil's intelligent cities, identifying opportunities for U.S. businesses to participate in the annual Connected Smart Cities (CSC) event in Sao Paulo in 2021.
