Much has been written about RFID over the last 5 years or so, but nowhere has there been a single report that covers the complete RFID component market from tags, both active and passive, through readers and printers, to middleware to application solutions. In the face of this need for clear, comprehensive information about RFID and its benefits, Bloor Research has produced this market report in order to provide an overview of the complete RFID market from tags to applications. If read in conjunction with the Bloor Research white papers, which provide examples of the current state of RFID and how it could be used in an industry sector, it provides the user with a complete single source of information about RFID. It is the intention of Bloor Research to publish further details about the RFID categories introduced in this report, accompanied by Bullseye evaluations of the products in the categories.

  • The introduction provides a background to RFID, its current uses and history.
