RFID Market

  • In 2018, the total RFID market size was $11.0 billion, and is expected to reach $13.4 Billion in 2022. "This includes tags, readers and software/services for RFID labels, cards, fobs and all other form factors, for both passive and active RFID."
  • About 16.4 billion tags will be sold in 2018 versus 15.0 billion in 2017. "Most of that growth is from passive UHF RFID (RAIN RFID) labels. However, in 2018 UHF (RAIN RFID) tag sales by value will only be 20% of the value of HF tag sales (including NFC), mainly because HF tags where used for security (such as payments, access etc) have a higher price point versus the cheaper, usually disposable UHF (RAIN) tags used for tagging things."
