The report segments the global RFID readers market by end-user, and can be divided into five broad categories:
The retail sector was the major revenue contributor to the global RFID readers market, accounting for 55% of the total revenue in 2015.
According to Navin Rajendra, lead research analyst for embedded systems at Technavio, “The high adoption of RFID in the retail sector is primarily to improve efficiency in the supply chain. RFID does not need a line of sight to track items, and thus, has become the preferred choice for inventory management, asset management, and supply chain management in the retail sector.”
In addition, RFID tags offer advantages such as faster checkout times (as almost 40 RFID tags can be read at the same time), long read range, and reuse of tags. These advantages have prompted large retailers such as Wal-Mart and Gillette to switch to RFID tags instead of barcode system, thus boosting market growth.
The global RFID readers market in the transportation segment is likely to grow at a CAGR of over 25% during the forecast period. RFID tagging is being used in public transportation systems for passenger tickets, contactless cards such as driver's license, toll collection, and registration certificate. For instance, in London, UK, travelers use Oyster cards on trains, buses, and ferries. The card contains the identification of the user and calculates the fare.
“This wide application of RFID tags in the transportation sector has broadened the RFID readers market and will contribute to its growth,” says Navin.
The global RFID readers market by logistics sector will also grow at a CAGR of over 25% during the forecast period. RFID tags are used to track vehicle movement and cargo in planes and ships. RFID tags are also being used in the railroad industry for tagging locomotives.
For instance, India is planning to fit its locomotives, wagons, and coaches with RFID technology. RFID system also helps in detecting and retrieving stolen cars.
The global RFID readers market in the manufacturing sector will grow at a CAGR of around 21% during the forecast period. Inventory management and asset tracking are the important applications of RFID systems in manufacturing. RFID tags help in optimizing the inventory, and also allow the manufacturers to focus on total quality management (TQM). RFID systems also help in cost reduction in inventory management.
The global RFID readers market in the others segment will grow at a CAGR of over 14% during the forecast period. The others sector includes the healthcare, defense, libraries, school, and museums.
In the healthcare sector, RFID tags encoded with data such as the person's ID and laboratory records are employed. Though only a few hospitals in the US and Japan have adopted this practice, the demand from this sector is expected to rise. Animal tagging is another area where RFID tags are used.
RFID tags have also replaced barcodes in many libraries. Over 30 million libraries use the RFID system, including the Vatican library in Rome, Italy.
The tags are also being implemented in sports to analyze various aspects of performance of sportsmen such as distance, speed, and direction traveled by each player in real-time.
