RFID Technology Market Size Worth USD 41.6 Billion By 2025 | CAGR: 15.1%

Published Date : 18 / 01 / 19  | Report Format: PDF

The global water RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology market is expected to grow at growth rate of 15.1% to reach USD 41.6 billion by 2025.

RFID (Radiofrequency identification) works on radio frequency technology, wherein digital information is encoded in smart labels or RFID tags. This technology is based on wireless technology that utilizes radio-frequency electromagnetic waves for transferring data from a tag attached to an object, for various reasons such as tracking of objects and automatic identification. The RFID technology is designed to replace manual entry of data stored and used for tracking, inventory and other IT-based supply chain systems. Unlike the traditional bar-code technology, this system supports a larger set of unique ids and incorporates additional data such as product type, manufacture details etc.

RFID industry has been continuously evolving since its invention and the upcoming chip fewer tags are gaining popularity worldwide owing to its reduced size and portability. Current trends indicate that the market will grow fast in the next 8-10 years. With 6.9 billion having been sold worldwide in 2014, the value of the market is anticipated to increase by a factor of ten during 2017-2025. Growing application of RFID in the healthcare industry, raising concerns regarding counterfeiting, growing need for tracking and localizing medical equipment, and increasing demand for reducing medication errors support the growth of this technology in medical applications.

On contrary, high cost and difficulties in identification of metals and liquids present significant challenges for the growth of this industry. This proposed report is an effort to identify factors, which will be the driving force behind the global and country-specific healthcare radiofrequency identification market. The industry report provides extensive analysis of the RFID products, industry drivers and challenges, current market trends, and key players’ strategies.
