Rain RFID Alliance, a global alliance promoting universal adoption of UHF RFID technology, has sold over 15.4 billion RFID tag chips in 2018, which is 23 per cent growth over 2017. This also means that the Rain RFID market is on track. The alliance which was founded in 2014, is expecting to achieve annual sales of over 20 billion tag chips by 2020.

Rain acts as a nod to the link between UHF RFID and the cloud where RFID-based data can be stored, managed and shared.

Rain Alliance collects volume data from leading Rain tag chip manufacturers, all of which are members of the Alliance, Rain RFID said in a press release. Rain Alliance members include Alien Technologies, Axzon Inc, EM Microelectronic, Impinj, and NXP Semiconductors.

Rain tags are either used alone or attached/embedded to sensors. The tags are without batteries or are battery assisted, flexible or hardened, can be used for long or short range. The markets using Rain are aviation, electronics, food, healthcare, manufacturing, packaging and retail.

“Rain is the pre-eminent identifying technology for the Internet-of-Things (IoT), and last year Rain technology enabled over 15 billion things to be connected to the IoT,” said Steve Halliday, president of Rain RFID Alliance. “We have daily discussions with members of the Alliance, currently over 160 worldwide, and it is exciting to hear about the growing number of Rain solutions to tag ‘things’ across many markets.” (PC)
