Historically, the adoption of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology in the retail industry has been slower than expected. Low awareness levels about return on investment (ROI), skepticism, and concerns regarding privacy were among the key challenges for RFID adoption.
During the past year, retailers slowly started to witness the benefits in particular business cases for RFID use. Hence, the future of RFID adoption looks bright.
Rising interests in omni-channel retailing lays greater emphasis on efficient inventory management, loss prevention, and shrinkage. Hence, omni-channel retailing is and will continue to be the key driver for RFID adoption.
Growing interest in item-level tagging is expected to drive demand for tags in the retail industry. Applications such as inventory management, loss prevention, and customer behavior understanding are expected to augur well for the growth of RFID.
Apparel constitutes the major share of the total RFID market in retail. Other growth areas include footwear, perishables, jewellery, and personal care.
North America and Europe are expected to contribute to the short-term growth prospects while Latin America and Asia contribute to long-term growth prospects.
