Executive Summary

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a form of wireless communication that uses radio waves to identify and track objects. Today RFID is mostly used as a medium for numerous tasks including managing supply chains, tracking livestock, preventing counterfeiting, controlling building access, and supporting automated checkout. The main driving force behind the growth of RFID is the decrease in per unit cost of the RFID devices. Other growth drivers for RFID technology includes the advantages over barcode, the need for IoT, mandates by retail sector and the laws for compulsory tagging of animals.Although, the adoption rate of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is increasing, mass-market adoption will not be achieved until a few major challenges are addressed. These challenges include lack of required technology and skill, security and high costs from the end-user’s view point and standardization.

RFID continues to do very well in IT asset tracking, healthcare, and other sectors, with a number of application-specific capabilities. RFID finds its application in large number of industries for example healthcare, financial services, technology, telecommunications etc. Retail Apparel and footwear, transportation and livestock tagging are the top three contributors of the RFID market and together held more than 50% of the RFID market in 2014. This growth is attributed to their wide application area. RFID Tags allow for easier logistics and product related information storage and retrieval which could help in making management decision. RFID helps the organizations in optimum utilization of their resources. The advantages of RFID make it a very attractive market for investment and companies irrespective of their sectors are anticipated to invest in this technology in the future.
