RFID Market – Analysis, Share, Trends, Size, & Forecast From 2020-2030

Radio-frequency identification (RFID) works on radio frequency technology, wherein digital information is encoded in smart labels or RFID tags. This technology is based on wireless technology that utilizes radio-frequency electromagnetic waves for transferring data from a tag attached to an object, for various reasons such as tracking of objects and automatic identification. RFID technology holds immense potential in the healthcare industry owing to the growing use of tagging for locating various healthcare assets, increasing demand for reducing medication errors and combating counterfeit.

Radio-frequency identification system minimizes the risk of unacceptable (i.e., recalled, and expired), counterfeited, and adulterated drugs by enabling manufacturers to track products as it moves through the supply chain. Thereby, companies can achieve more accurate recalls, improve their operational efficiencies, and in the long run, gain valuable business proficiency. Likewise, due to enhanced visibility over the value chain, helps hospital facilities to stop the growth and spread of “unofficial” inventory. Major applications of RFID in healthcare are tracking medical hospital equipment, patient identification, tracking medication from pharmacy to patient and blood transfer monitoring. On contrary, despite such bright prospects vis-à-vis revenue, the global industry is expected to face challenges in terms of increasing sale of cheaper barcode systems and privacy issues.
