Real Time Locating Systems (RTLS) 2012-2022

Real Time Locating Systems (RTLS)

Single User License


This report is for CEOs, marketing, sales, business planning VPs and their teams. It is for suppliers, users and potential users, component and service providers, government agencies, investors, analysts and planners. It is uniquely up to date and comprehensive. This is very important because, in the last year, there have been radical changes in Real Time Locating Systems RTLS in terms of technology and where and why it is primarily used. The uses have now moved well beyond logistics and hospitals that powered most of the early success and our new forecasts detail why there will be a multi-billion dollar business emerging within the next decade. Oil & Gas, Mining, Aerospace and Manufacturing are now among the important adopters of RTLS. We go into this very thoroughly, presenting new ten year forecasts and many new case studies and supplier profiles to illustrate the trends. There is even a detailed report on the latest conference on the subject, the IDTechEx “Energy Harvesting, RTLS & WSN” event.

What will be the market value over the next ten years? Where will the profits be made in future? What are the multiple benefits and paybacks emerging? Which companies should you buy? Which system should you use and who has done something similar already and can advise you on the pitfalls? Which are the most active countries and industries about to adopt this technology? It is all here.
It was prepared by a team led by Dr Peter Harrop who has written, lectured and consulted on global RFID developments, including RTLS, for eleven years and is regarded as one of the world’s leading authorities on the subject. His company IDTechEx is regularly commissioned to carry out major consultancy projects in this area using its staff and offices in the USA, UK, Germany, Poland and New Zealand and associates across East Asia. With a profusion of figures, tables, supplier profiles and case studies, the report explains and compares the technologies and applications in detail yet in a way understandable to those with only basic scientific training.
Best practice is now seen from Bulgaria to Korea and, in addition to the well-known RTLS suppliers such as Zebra Technologies, Cisco, GE Healthcare, Awarepoint and Aeroscout continuing to land business, one must now track companies such as Decawave, Ubisense, Loc8tor and Samsung for the big new breakthroughs in RTLS technology. IDTechEx is unmatched in its ability to discover and explain what is happening because it updates its RFID Knowledgebase every week as its PhD level consultants intensively tour the globe. This RFID Knowledgebase currently details 4400 RFID projects in 123 countries involving over 4400 organisations. In addition, the IDTechEx contact database lists over 30,000 people interested in RFID.
