Inventory tag is a label attached to the objects to provide them with unique identification and assist in counting the physical inventory. Furthermore, inventory tags offer various advantages over traditional technologies, for instance, effective tracking of products and equipment, which is further maintained by the management information system (MIS) software. These are used to categorize objects based on their nature and application. In addition, these tags allow end users to streamline the stocking process. Hence, in recent years, various government bodies and manufacturing hubs have largely deployed inventory tags, owing to the rise in awareness toward protection against loss, theft, and counterfeiting. Inventory tagging offers various benefits, such as cost-efficiency, automation, and accuracy while tracking inventory through the retail environment and supply chain network. This also improves end user experience by providing better visibility and improved control of inventory.
Rise in awareness of the benefits provided by inventory tags, efforts toward standardization, rapid expansion of retail segment, and convergence of technologies drive the market growth. The market growth is further supported by the increase in disposable income predominantly in the developing countries globally, rapid industrialization, and imposition of strict laws pertaining to secure packaging. However, lack of awareness and high initial costs are some key challenges pertaining in the global inventory tags market.
