Analysis of the US Hospital Real-time Location Systems Market

Primary and Secondary Research Methodology

The primary research included in-depth discussions with a variety of market participants, focusing primarily on vendors specializing in Real-Time Location Systems hardware, installation, integration and service offerings as a core business. Within vendor organizations, discussions were held with CEOs or marketing, sales and strategy executives.

The secondary research consisted of an extensive review of data and literature from various nonprofit and industry organizations, vendor Websites, and news sources. Base Year Market Assumptions

The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) was determined on the basis of information obtained during primary and secondary research. Base year revenue was determined from and verified with public filings and interviews with market participants. Market size is estimated and cross-checked through extensive market research. Restraint Factors in Forecasting

Natural limitations of vendor interview, in terms of disclosure of sales and projected growth statements, were a restraint.

Frost & Sullivan employs a competitively verified best-guess model to project base year sales for non-participating vendors featured in the study.

Sudden pricing shifts due to industry consolidation, hospital client consolidation, external competition, technology shift, or other unforeseen market externalities were not taken into account.
