Printed RFID Markets
  • Emerging Electronics

    Radio frequency identification (RFID) promises a major new revolution in information technology.  It can bring enhanced productivity to supply chain management, inventory control, package tracking and a host of other business functions.  However, to be widely deployed, RFID tags must be manufactured at exceptionally low cost. Printed electronics offers a way to achieve this goal.  This report reviews the market for printed RFID; both complete tags and antennas.  It examines the potential of the latest developments in RFID, including the performance of the first commercial 13 MHz tags to hit the market; research on printed UHF tags; and the impact of printed silicon electronics on the manufacture of RFID tags.  It also profiles the activities of 11 organizations involved with the development and manufacture of printed RFID products and provides both an update on the exciting new developments in this field and an eight-year forecast of revenues from the printed RFID sector in volume and value terms.
