RFID Sensors 2017-2027: Forecasts, Players, Opportunities

The general RFID market has seen substantial growth over the last few years, with successful public offerings and rapid growth in terms of the number of RFID tags sold. Vendors are now exploring allied technologies with RFID sensors at the forefront of this. This has been enabled thanks to new chipsets, at both HF(NFC) and UHF (RAIN) which are dedicated to support sensor platforms and therefore make RFID sensors simpler to make and lower cost in addition to the increasing maturity and wider scale adoption of RFID reader infrastructure. Additionally, new technologies from printed sensors and flexible batteries to bio sensing films meet unmet needs and provide differentiation.

Sensors for Robotics: Technologies, Markets and Forecasts 2017-2027

The development and deployment of smarter robots that can see, feel, and make decisions based on sensory feedback is expected to have massive societal impact in the next decade, as such systems will target many more market segments than current robotic systems address. In this report, we evaluate the market for sensing systems in robots, including 2D & 3D vision and force sensing, that is expected to reach over $16.1 billion in the next decade. Autonomous vehicles, industrial and collaborative robots are only some of the types of robots that will proliferate and impact all aspects of everyday life, a proliferation made possible only because of the development of the relevant enabling sensing systems highlighted in this report.

Wearable Sensors 2016-2026: Market Forecasts, Technologies, Players

This report provides detailed descriptions of the sensor types that dominate wearable technology products today, and emerging sensor types that will dominate in the future. Many product types have risen through the peak of the wearable technology hype curve in the last five years before beginning the slide to disillusionment. The common feature with all of them is the prominence of sensor options as the key enabler for their most useful functions. Sensors collect data about the physical and chemical properties of the body and local environment, and use it to feed algorithms which output insightful information.
