Global RFID Lock Market 2016-2020
About RFID Locks
RFID technologies are gaining attention from multiple sectors, especially hospitality, where property owners are harnessing the technology in providing enhanced customer experience. The hospitality industry relies on consumer comfort to build brand loyalty. As a result, property owners are increasingly investing in enhancing the aesthetics of their property. Door locks are the first thing in the hotel rooms a consumer interacts with. Also, the traditional form of locks with the key is outdated. The advent of electronic locks with technologies like biometric, radio-frequency integrated circuit (RFIC), and keypad provide hassle-free access to consumers and also enhance security and safety. The concept of RFID-based electronic locks are very similar to traditional locks and it uses a card or key fob to open a door. The technology finds application in various luxury apartments, government offices, residential properties, and in the industrial domain.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global RFID lock market to grow at a CAGR of 16.71% during the period 2016-2020.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “RFID-based furniture locks have replaced traditional key-based furniture locks. Furniture electronic locks can be operated in two ways, contactless opening with an RFID card (MIFARE) and wireless opening wherein the user introduces the card to the lock. These locks are ideal for growing organizations. Access control can be reorganized at any time by re-programming the electronic access components.”
According to the report, countries in APAC are currently witnessing a large-scale migration of the population from rural to urban areas. The urban population in China in 2015 accounted for 56% of the total population. This is expected to further increase during the forecast period; China's urban population will comprise 60% of the total population of the country by 2020. Similarly, India's urban population is growing at an average rate of 2.5% per annum, whereas Vietnam recorded an average urban population growth rate of 3.1% per annum. With an increase in urban population, problems such as traffic congestion, shortage of housing, and increasing passenger traffic are creeping into urban cities of APAC. To cater to the needs of such a large urban population, APAC countries are extensively focusing on urban development. The government of India has planned an investment of $650 billion during the next 20 years for development of the urban infrastructure in the country, whereas the Chinese government plans to invest over $1 trillion in urban infrastructure projects by 2030
Further, the report states that the upgrade cost or fresh installation of RFID locks increases the overall cost of existing business models. The commoditization of RFID technology has brought down the prices of RFID locks, but end-users are still reluctant to adopt these technologically advanced RFID locks. Manufacturers of RFID locks are differentiating their products on the basis of integration of RFID lock with technologies like NFC compatible, ZigBee, and Wi-Fi. The RFID locks integrated with such technologies increase the overall replacement price of locks. Hence, end-users are reluctant to deploy advanced RFID locks due to high costs.
