The RFID opportunity

In 2016, IDTechEx forecast the value of the total market for RFID including systems and services to reach $26.23Bn from $2.77Bn in 2006. This includes many new markets that are being created, such as the market for Real Time Location Systems using active RFID. Being an enabling technology and not just a product, the opportunity for RFID is incredibly diverse.

RFID Investments and M&A

The appetite for funding for RFID technology is growing rapidly but is still well below what the market demands. With about 1000 companies doing something significant in the RFID value chain and mergers being less than the rate of formation of new RFID companies, there is scope for much more M&A activity and for the weak to disappear. Attend this event to learn more.
