The Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology incorporates electromagnetic fields in radio frequency portion of the electromagnetic spectrum to identify an object, animal, device or person. An RFID system has been developed on this technology, and the system consists of three components including RFID reader, RFID tags and RFID software and middleware. An RFID reader is a device that is used to interrogate an RFID tag. The reader’s antenna emits radio waves to communicate with radio tags that stores specific information about the object/item. This information provides identification for an item, proof of ownership, original storage location and history.
In order to scan data from a tag, the RFID readers have to be tuned to the frequency as that of a tag. Earlier every region was assigned a specific band of radio spectrum for RFID which led to lack of standardization. In order to avoid these many areas have now specified three frequency ranges namely low frequency (125 or 134 kHz), high frequency (13.56 MHz), and ultra-high spectrum (865 to 868 MHz). This standard frequency has driven the adoption of RFID technology.
RFID Readers: Drivers and Restraints
Rising need for efficient supply chain management, increasing demand for RFID systems in transport and healthcare sectors are driving the adoption of RFID system in the market. Also, growth in retail industry and integration of new technology in the RFID readers are driving the growth of RFID readers market.
The high cost of reading equipment, lack of standardizations are hampering the growth of the market. Issues in scanning the tags by the readers are further restraining the growth of RFID readers market.
The key trends in the RFID readers market are growing number of partnerships between organizations in order to develop an innovative product. The higher adoption rate of RFID technology is also trending in the market.
