RFID tags

RFID tags are the most popular product offering of the market, responsible for generating 40% of the overall global revenue. The growth of the market through 2021 is expected to come from the increasing application of RFID technology in the industrial and retail sectors,” says Chetan Mohan, a lead analyst at Technavio for embedded systems research.

RFID tags are programmed to respond to a particular frequency and wavelength, based on which they are further divided into low frequency, high frequency, and ultra-high frequency segments. The falling average selling price of these RFID tags is another factor that will drive the unit sales of the product.


Middleware is currently the fastest-growing product in the RFID market, with analysts projecting it to showcase a CAGR of over 11% through 2021. RFID middleware is used in the accurate recording and analysis of internal databases and integrating it with ERP, CRM, WMS, and track and trace applications.

The growth of the segment is expected to originate from the increasing number of vendors offering middleware solutions and the entry of global players such Google (Alphabet) and Microsoft in the software RFID solutions segment. Also, the increase in demand for customized solutions for small and medium-sized businesses is also expected to impact the market segment.
