Technavio Announces Top 33 Prominent Vendors in the Global RFID Market from 2016 to 2020

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top 33 prominent vendors in their recent global RFID market 2016-2020 report.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global radio frequency identification (RFID) market is highly fragmented due to the presence of a large number of vendors. Intense competition among vendors along with rapid changes in technology constitutes significant risk factors for vendor operations. The increase in competition among vendors has led to industry consolidation, wherein smaller entities are being taken over or are being merged with major players. The influx of private labels in the market is also on the rise. Therefore, to survive and succeed in this competitive environment, it becomes imperative for vendors to distinguish their respective product and service offerings through clear and unique value propositions.

According to Sunil Kumar Singh, a lead analyst at Technavio for embedded systems research, “Competition in the industry is intensifying and is characterized by evolving standards, changing smart technologies, and frequent new product development along with the changing customer requirements.”
