Examples of how our research benefits you

Clear, concise and considered view of complex sectors.
Emerging technologies tend to be supplier-pushed and media-hyped. There can be too much invested in the wrong areas, followed by shakeout and disappointment, all the while the real opportunities are not being exploited. IDTechEx research provides clear quantitative and qualitative assessment of emerging technologies from market data to size the sector to applicational implementation barriers to address. We do not sugar-coat the results - even if they do go against the grain and popular view if that is what our fact-based research finds. This is how we add valuable insight.

Assessing companies.
Our clients access company profiles to quickly learn about the company from an independent point of view with data obtained through primary interviews and site visits. We benchmark companies versus their peers. Immediately and directly find the business intelligence you seek.

Identifying opportunities.
Those doing well in new technologies tend not to be vocal about it, while sometimes those making the most noise struggle commercially. Our methodology of direct interviews with stakeholders throughout the value chain and globally, and critically interviewing end-users, allows us to identify opportunities. Whether that is systems integration in printed electronics or materials in 3D printing. We work with you to help grow your business.

Excellent

Yi-Chen Lin, Metals Industry Research & Development Centre Taiwan

DecaWave has relied on IDTechEx industry reports over the years for the quantitative and qualitative insights they provide into technologies and markets that are relevant to us. The 2011 IDTechEx Active RFID report is no exception and we have used it to aid, guide and justify our market focus and strategy development.

Luc Darmon, VP of Strategy and Business Development, DecaWave, Ireland

I purchased this report to receive expert opinion on the RTLS market, trends in technology and the market - the content and tables were excellent, this report is good value for money, and I would recommend it to others.

Invaluable

Dr Vicki A.Barbur, Technology Director, Eastman Kodak Company

For at least 3 decades Peter Harrop has been at the fore-front of electronic technology and he has written literally dozens of books in which his vast expertise is made available to those who are smart and wise enough to use it. This book is no exception. Now that RFID has arrived to stay, the movers and shakers in the industry need to know how best to generate cash from their products. And how not to become losers. So often in the past this has been done by trial and error. From now on, however, this book will enable the intelligent reader to avoid many (maybe all?) of the pitfalls associated with developing an RFID product and getting it to the market. Painstakingly the authors have compiled and estimated data for a surprisingly large number of companies and products. The book is worth buying just for the market data it contains, let alone the guidance that it gives.
