RFID in Manufacturing Is Booming - But There Is a Hitch

The need to track and trace products in many markets, the increased complexity in manufacturing, and the trend towards Industrie 4.0/Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), create a perfect storm for RFID in manufacturing.

RFID is a key enabler, especially for mass customization in an Industrie 4.0 production environment.  As a result, RFID in manufacturing is booming.  Looking at units, the market is expected to grow, but the price pressure is high, leaving the market measured in US$ to be less optimistic.

ARC has identified a number of different applications and in interviews we clearly identified that growing areas are all around the Industrie 4.0 environment, while classic machine tool management or track & trace will grow at a slower rate.

The RFID market in manufacturing is also characterized by a large number of players and many different strategies.

Over the next years, RFID will also move into new applications and will enable a deeper integration between the supply chain and the production environment.  The reason for this is more application experience, plus more robust tag technology, and falling prices for readers and tags. 

RFID in Manufacturing Strategic Issues

RFID in Manufacturing Market TrendsUsers are keen to optimize their production in an increasingly complex environment.  For suppliers it is important to not only grow with the market but actually outperform the market.  ARC recommends the following strategies:

  • Lifecycle services enabled with RFID
  • Office IT of end users as decision makers
  • Identify the key users
  • Address OEMs differently
  • Be aware of new entrants from the supply chain market
  • Have a wide variety of tag sizes
