This report provides the key data and analysis of extensive research including interviews with RFID adopters and solution providers in the various applicational RFID markets, giving an unprecedented level of insight into the total RFID industry and what is really happening.
The new report find that in 2013, the total RFID market is worth $7.88 billion, up from $6.98 billion in 2012, and growing to $9.2 billion in 2014. This includes tags, readers and software/services for RFID cards, labels, fobs and all other form factors. The new report forecast that to rise to $30.24 billion in 2024.
In retail, RFID is seeing rapid growth for apparel tagging - that application alone demands 2.25 billion RFID labels in 2013. RFID in the form of tickets used for transit will demand 600 million tags in 2013. The tagging of animals (such as pigs, sheep and pets) is now substantial as it becomes a legal requirement in many more territories, with 375 million tags being used for this sector in 2013. This is happening in regions such as China and Australasia. In total, 5.9 billion tags will be sold in 2013 versus 4.8 billion in 2012. Most of that growth is from passive UHF RFID labels, with UHF tag sales overtaking HF and LF tag sales by volume in 2012. However, in 2013 UHF tag sales by value will only be 11% of the value of HF tag sales.
This comprehensive report gives the complete picture covering passive RFID, battery assisted passive, active RFID, Real Time Locating Systems (RTLS) and chipless RFID. It provides detailed forecasts and depth unmatched by any other.
Market analysis by a huge number of parameters
Using new, unique information researched globally by The new report technical experts, we analyze the RFID market in many different ways. Full analysis by each market is given in great detail including in-depth historic data by application type from 2005 year by year to 2020 and with a 2024 outlook. For passive RFID, forecasts are provided separately for the many application areas. For each we provide the number of tags, average sales price and total value of tags.
In addition, ten year forecasts are provided for battery assisted passive and active RFID and RTLS in the following applications:
- Cold retail supply chain
- Consumer goods
- Manufacturing parts, tools
- Archiving (samples)
- Retail CPG Pallet/case
- Shelf edge labels
- People (excluding other sectors)
- Car clickers
- Other tag applications
Additionally, the report provides units, asp and total value for RFID readers as follows:
- UHF Fixed portal
- UHF Embedded and handheld
- HF and LF Hand held, fixed, embedded
- LF Vehicle
- NFC Cellphone
The research conducted by The new report ultimately provides ten year forecasts by application area including tags, readers, software and services for the following markets:
- Healthcare and medical
- Passenger transport/automotive
- Land, sea logistics and post
- Animals and farming
- Airlines and airports
- Financial, Security
- Consumer products
Data is also provided for other sectors including market by territory, value chain positioning, NFC, chip vs chipless and more. Cumulative sales of RFID are analyzed. Progress of key companies is provided in addition to a matrix of hundreds of suppliers.
Interpretation of data
Taking the core data, The new report interprets it in this report to identify aspects such as: Which sectors are booming and which are under performing? Which suppliers and profitable and why? What are the hot sectors? And much more.
Major players now and in the future in the various parts of the value chain are identified and the big orders and milestones now and in the future are analyzed. Those doing well in numbers sold are sometimes much less impressive in dollars taken and vice versa. Of course, not everyone will want to serve the severely price constrained, highest volume markets. For them, we examine many niches of at least one billion dollars potential that are emerging and many smaller opportunities where there is even less competition.
The report covers the topic globally - with coverage of the drivers and challenges in rapidly growing sectors such as China, South America and Russia, in addition to the latest progress in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific, with forecasts given by territory.
Access to Raw Data
In addition to the report - in PDF format - you will also receive a spreadsheet in Excel format giving you access to the key data contained in tables throughout the report. A printed copy of the report is also optionally available.
