IDTechEx estimates over 2.2bn tags to be sold

Jun '06
In 2006 1.3 Billion RFID tags will be sold, with 500 million being applied to pallets and cases, over 200 million for contactless smart cards and the rest in a very diverse range of markets. Item level tagging is increasingly taking off with 200 million tags being sold for item level tagging this year.

New technologies such as near field UHF tags, which work much better around fluids than the typical far field UHF tags, are helping the situation. In 2007, IDTechEx forecast that over 2.2 billion tags will be sold - the start of a steep curve.

The seventh annual European RFID event from IDTechEx focuses on these market verticals covering RFID requirements by different industries, how RFID suppliers can make money from RFID by avoiding the crowd, international perspectives from Americas to East Asia and cutting edge technologies.

In parallel to the event a one day summit on Active RFID and Real Time Locating Systems will cover suitable applications, return on investment and all the technologies of this quickly growing segment. All conference delegates to RFID Smart Labels Europe can attend this summit free of charge.

Delegates should expect to meet new customers, channel systems integrators, learn of integration experiences and cutting edge technologies.

IDTechEx analysts pull it all together for you - with overviews of the market, barriers and successes in each RFID vertical segment prior to you hearing major users in those segments. We focus on transport, healthcare, pharmaceutical, commerce, retail and more. Examples of speakers so far include General Electric, Procter & Gamble, Manchester Airports Group, San Francisco Airport, NHS, the Chinese Government and much more.

In addition, all conference delegates receive access to the unique RFID Knowledgebase - with 2,000 RFID case studies and over 2,200 company profiles, this is the worlds most comprehensive tool to learn what is being done in your sector, success and failures, what your competition is doing and much more.
