Healthcare RFID Market

Healthcare RFID Market by Product (RFID tags, RFID readers, RFID printers), Application (tracking, monitoring), End User (Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Companies, Hospitals) - Analysis and Global Forecasts to 2021

Report Code: UC 1681 May, 2024, by

Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) uses radio waves to read and capture information stored on a tag attached to an object.  This tag can be read from several feet distance and does not need to be within direct line-of-sight of the reader. In healthcare industry, RFID technology can be used in supply chain applications, patient safety, and in quality assurance applications.  RFID can be deployed in hospitals and clinics to improve patient flow, reduce medial errors, improve asset utilization rates, and mange inventories & implants, among others.

Improvement of inventory management in hospitals, pharmacies, and biotechnology companies; improved patient safety by healthcare providers, low-cost and high efficacy of the RFID systems, and adoption of automated process in hospitals and pharmacies are expected to spur the growth of healthcare RFID during the forecast period. Furthermore, many research activities are being carried out by non-profit organizations for development of new technologies to reinforce RFID in healthcare.

The global healthcare RFID market is broadly segmented into four broad categories: by product, by application, by end user, and by geography. The global RFID product market includes RFID tags, monitors, printers, readers, and software, among others. These RFID tags can be used for asset tracking, pharmaceutical tracking, patient tacking, and for tacking blood monitoring systems. While the software and hardware are used for reading and displaying the information on the RFID tags.  Based on the application areas, RFID in healthcare is broadly segmented into tracking and monitoring. Global healthcare RFID market based on the end user can be segmented to its use in pharmaceutical/biotechnology companies, research institutes, and hospitals, among others.

The global healthcare RFID report analyses four major geographies, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World (RoW: Latin America and Middle East & Africa). Rising number of collaboration in the medical device industry, research by non-profits organizations and presence of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure contribute to the dominance of North American healthcare RFID market.  Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. This high growth is attributed to the improving healthcare infrastructure in India, China, and Japan. Adding to this, rising concern to track expensive medical devices, patient safety, and up-gradation of hospitals is likely to drive the market fastest in this region.

Some of the major players in the global healthcare RFID market include Alien Technology Corporation (U.S.), Gao RFID, Inc. (Canada), Honeywell International Inc. (U.S.), Impinj Inc. (U.S.), Mobile Aspects, Inc. (U.S.), RF Technologies (U.S.), Radianse (U.S.), STiD RFID (France), Solstice Medical, LLC (U.S.), and Stanley Healthcare (U.S.), among others
