According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, “Chipless RFID Market by Product Type, Frequency, Application, and End User: Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020–2027”, the global Chipless RFID industry size was valued at $903.3 million in 2019, and is projected to reach $4,744.0 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 23.1%. Asia-Pacific region is expected to be the leading contributor to the global Chipless RFID market during the forecast period, followed by Europe and North America.
A Chipless RFID system is equipped with a planar encoder (characteristically a printed pattern containing the ID code) & an antenna for communication with the reader. Due to low-cost conductive inks, the cost of the tag can be significantly reduced. The chipless RFID system has benefits over conventional sensors due to its lower radiated power, lower cost, robustness, and longer storage life. Alternatively, chipless RFID system provides identification data & monitors several physical parameters of tagged items without having an active sensor in the circuitry. A chipless RFID tag is also used as a chipless RFID sensors in offering low-priced sensors for realizing the universal networks required by the IoT paradigm. A chipless RFID sensors is mainly used for detection of CO2.
The global chipless RFID market is anticipated to witness significant growth over the period of forecast. Factors such as high accuracy, low manufacturing cost, and providing more functions as compared to other alternatives drive the growth of the global market. However, initially high capital investment is a major restraint to the global chipless RFID industry. In addition, growing shift of retailers toward chipless RFID is expected to create opportunities for global industry.
Moreover, economically developed nations tend to witness high penetration of chipless RFID technology in various retail segments. Factors such as growing manufacturing sector, incentives in the Union Budget worldwide owing to covid-19 pandemic contribute toward the chipless RFID market growth in the coming years.
The global chipless RFID market share is segmented into product type, frequency, application, end user, and region. By product type, the market is segmented into tag, and reader. The frequency segment is divided into low frequency, high frequency, and ultrahigh frequency. By application, the market is fragmented into smart cards, smart tickets, and others. Depending on end user, the market is segregated into retail, healthcare, logistics and transportation, BFSI, and others.
Region wise, the chipless RFID market trends have been analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. North America contributed maximum revenue in 2019. However, between 2019 and 2027, the market in Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at a faster rate as compared to other regions. This is attributed to increase in investment from the emerging economical countries such as China, Japan and south Korea.
Covid-19 Impact Analysis
The COVID-19 has impacted severely on the global electronics and semiconductor sector, due to which production facility have stalled which in turn have the significant demand in the industries. The operations of the production and manufacturing industries have been heavily impacted by the outbreak of the COVID-19 disease; thereby, leading to slowdown in the growth of the chipless RFID market in 2020.
Key Findings Of The Study
- The transport & logistics segment is projected to be the major application over the forecast period followed by retail. The rising public transit industry is anticipated to drive demand in the future.
- APAC and North America collectively accounted for more than 56% of the chipless RFID market share in 2019.
- India is anticipated to witness highest growth rate during the forecast period.
- U.S. was the major shareholder in the North America chipless RFID market, accounting for approximately 59% share in 2019.
