Declining Prices of RFID Tags to Augment Global Real-time Locating Systems (RTLS) Market

Press Release   •   Feb 16, 2017 07:02 EST

The report, titled “Global RTLS Market 2017-2021” extensively covers all the important parameters of the global real-time locating systems (RTLS) market including its dynamics, competitive landscape, applications, and geographical segmentation.

As per the findings of the report, the global RTLS market is poised to progress at a CAGR of more than 46% between 2017 and 2021. The market is likely to experience a thrust owing to the booming demand for RTLS in the transportation and logistics sector. The flourishing growth of this sector worldwide is, therefore, working in favor of the growth of the market. Moreover, the declining prices of radio-frequency identification (RFIDs) are providing a fillip to the market. On the flip side, the lack of well-defined technology standards pertaining to RTLS is hampering the growth of the market.

Based on solution, the global RTLS market is divided into systems and tags. The systems segment accounted for the lion’s share in the market in 2016. The dominance of the segment can be attributed to the growing demand for RTLS from government organizations. In addition, these systems are being increasingly used in military applications for shipment and asset tracking, which is fuelling the growth of the segment.

On the basis of application, retail, government, transportation and logistics, and healthcare are the segments analyzed in the report. Transportation and logistics will dominate the market throughout the forecast period. The increasing emphasis on enhancing the business productivity and profitability and reducing the insurance risk is stimulating the adoption of RTLS in the transportation and logistics sector. These systems have various applications such as fleet tracking, inventory tracking, and personnel tracking.
