Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is the use of a wireless non-contact system that uses radio-frequency electromagnetic fields to transfer data from a tag attached to an object, for the purposes of automatic identification and tracking. Some tags require no battery and are powered by the electromagnetic fields used to read them. Others use a local power source and emit radio waves (electromagnetic radiation at radio frequencies). The tag contains electronically stored information which can be read from up to several meters (yards) away.

In the latest technology developments, chipless RFID tags have been developed and offered at the affordability level of customers, which will result in high growth. They are coupled with a simplified manufacturing technology and decrease in the manufacturing time. Moreover, chipless RFID tags are compatible with the existing infrastructure, which saves the additional cost of installing new system. Manufacturers have reduced the price of chipless RFID tags. This trend is resulting in high growth of chipless RFID market.

The U.S. being a pioneer in the RFID business, contributes for the highest market share (44%) and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 23.2%, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific (28% each). They are expected to grow at a CAGR of 28.9% and 37.0% respectively. The U.S., Western Europe, and China will be the demand drivers of chipless RFID market.

Off late, the manufacturers have realized the need for affordable and efficient solutions for track and trace for the various applications like retail, supply chain, smart card, etc. Chipless RFID tags prove to be equally efficient at lower cost as compared to chip-based RFID. There is an increasing demand for chipless RFID to provide the various solutions like asset tracking, anti-counterfeiting, to avoid the shrink in retail. It also helps to increase the efficiency and make the system more productive. Chipless RFID has an ability provide the solutions like anti-counterfeiting, which is a universal burning issue for healthcare industry. Supply chain, aviation, and public transit segments are going to be benefited with chipless RFID by creating hassle-free operations. Chipless RFID will make smart cards more secure and hence increase the market penetration of smart cards and so of chipless RFID.

Governments of Nigeria, Singapore, China, and U.K. have already mandated RFID in various projects like counterfeiting, citizen identification, etc. The governments’ mandates provide an extra advantage for growth of chipless RFID.

The report deals with the market trends in chipless RFID and the growth associated with it. It also deals with the various factors that would drive and restrain the market in the next five years.

The revenue generated with respect to global chipless RFID market is expected to reach $3,925 million in 2016 from $1087 million in 2011 at an estimated CAGR of 29.3% from 2011 to 2016.

FIGURE 26 KEY GROWTH STRATEGIES

Conventionally, RFID has been used for “track” and “trace” applications. Chipless RFID is an offshoot of RFID system, which is used for similar function. Chipless RFID is an affordable solution for customers who were reluctant to use RFID due to its high price. Technology advancements to data accuracy and cost-effective solution are driving the growth of the chipless RFID market. Chipless RFID tags are expected to witness significant growth in the years to come. The market size of chipless RFID was $874 million in 2011 and is expected to reach $3.9 billion by 2016 at a CAGR of 29.3% from 2011 to 2016.

The demand for chipless RFID is expected to increase significantly since the price of the chipless RFID tag is expected to reduce up to 1 cent. Chipless RFID is applicable to applications such as retail, supply chain, aviation, healthcare, smart card, public transit, and others. However retail, supply chain, and smart cards are growing at a good pace and expected to provide good growth. The U.S. being the pioneer in commercializing RFID technology is the largest market till today. However, looking at the growing economies in Asia-Pacific, it is expected to witness the highest growth; i.e. a CAGR of 37%.

The major players in the chipless RFID market are Texas Instruments (U.S.), Alien Technology (U.S.), Kovio Inc. (U.S.), Impinj Inc. (U.S.), Poly IC (Germany), BASF SE (Germany), Motorola Solutions (U.S), NXP Semiconductor (The Netherlands), Toppan Printing (Japan.), and others.

The chipless RFID market is in introduction phase and has lower market size. In future, tags market is expected to grow exponentially. Considering the present economic conditions and the optimistic conditions with respect to future, chipless RFID tags are expected to grow at a CAGR of 85%. However, the overall market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 29.3%.

Chipless RFID Market Revenue, by Geography, 2010 – 2016 ($Million)


Chipless RFID Market

Source: MarketsandMarkets Analysis


The global chipless RFID market reached $1,087.00 million by the end 2011. The low cost of chipless RFID, much simpler manufacturing technology than conventional silicon based chips manufacturing and higher data accuracy are the major drivers of the market.

The second largest share was held by the “readers” market and reached $417.00 million by the end of 2011. This market is expected to reach $1,205 million by 2016, at an estimated CAGR of 23.6%. The chipless tag market is expected to reach $375.00 million by 2016 at the highest CAGR of 83.5% from 2011 to 2016.
