Need for Asset Tracking and Digitalization Drive Real-time Location Systems Market Growth

A real-time location system (RTLS) provides information about the location of assets, objects, vehicles, and goods.  A system comprises tags or beacons that are physically attached to the object, receivers and gateways for signal detection, and a software location engine.  This report covers real-time location technologies that utilize radio signals derived from asset tags that generate Bluetooth low energy (BLE), radio frequency identification (RFID), ultra-wideband (UWB), Wi-Fi, and other location technologies.  Other location technologies include chirp spread spectrum (CSS) and ultrasound technologies. 

Coverage in this report is limited to real-time location systems used for indoor, oil & gas, and mining applications.  Further segmentation of application types includes asset tracking, manufacturing operations, robots/automated guided vehicle (AGVs), intra logistics, and tool management.     

The real-time location system market is in a double-digit growth phase – most emerging technologies go through this when they really start to take off.  This phase is characterized by aggressive proliferation of new competitors and innovation and accompanied sometimes by fierce consolidation.  The need for asset tracking and reliable and accurate location data of assets at the right time to the right people is accelerating growth in this market.   

The real-time location system market is establishing partner ecosystems among manufacturers of tags and sensors, automation vendors, wireless network solution providers, and IoT software companies, specializing in IoT platforms, for offering end-to-end interoperable RTLS solutions. 

Real-time Location Systems Market Trends and Strategic Issues

Real-time Location Systems Market TrendsLack of true interoperability among various systems is one of the major concerns in the user industries. RTLS suppliers seem to be addressing this challenge by adding flexibility to their product offerings and offering open platform solutions that foster interoperability with the tags and other enterprise systems.  The report addresses key questions, such as: 

  • What are the growing RTLS technologies?
  • What strategies are suppliers following to offer interoperable solutions?
  • Which regions are the major markets for RTLS?
  • What technologies offer good growth?
