The real-time locating systems (RTLS) market for healthcare is estimated to grow from USD 1,271.2 million in 2018 to USD 2,941.2 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 18.3% during the forecast period (2018–2023). The increased market competitiveness with the emergence of startups providing innovative and customized RTLS solutions based on newer technologies is one of the major factors fueling the growth of the RTLS market for healthcare. The safety and security concerns in healthcare facilities and high return on investment are the other factors driving the growth of the market. The need for resource utilization and workflow optimization, development of hybrid RTLS solutions, and use of IoT technology in healthcare are likely to pose major opportunities to the players in the RTLS market for healthcare during the forecast period.

The hardware segment accounted for largest share of the RTLS market for healthcare in 2017. The market share of the hardware segment is expected to decrease during the forecast period mainly because of the falling ASPs of tags and readers as the technology further matures. Although the price of hardware components of RTLS solutions is expected to decrease in the near future, the required volume of these hardware components would increase.

Hospitals and healthcare facilities are likely to continue to dominate the RTLS market for healthcare during the forecast period by accounting for a larger market share. Hospitals in the US and European countries have a high demand for RTLS solutions for enhancing their operations, optimizing resource utilization, and increasing profitability. RTLS solutions provide real-time information about the location of people and assets, which helps healthcare organizations in making faster decisions and improving their operational processes. Additionally, the rapid growth in IoT in the healthcare industry has led to the increased adoption of RTLS, thereby accelerating the growth of the RTLS market for healthcare.

The market for UWB technology-based RTLS solutions is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The high precision and accuracy offered by UWB technology for tracking objects will be the major factor to drive the growth of the market for UWB technology-based RTLS solutions. The increasing adoption of UWB in the RTLS market for healthcare is primarily due to the advantages offered by solutions based on this technology, such as high precision, long battery life, high capacity, and fast update rates.

North America accounted for the largest share of the RTLS market for healthcare in 2017. North America is one of the largest contributors to the RTLS market for healthcare owing to the presence of a large number of healthcare facilities in the region, especially in the US. The rapid adoption of RTLS solutions for several applications in the healthcare sector is also one of the major reasons for North America to capture the largest share of the RTLS market for healthcare.

RTLS Healthcare Market

The major challenge faced by RTLS vendors in the healthcare sector is designing RTLS solutions satisfying high accuracy, high range, and low power consumption requirements. System incompatibility and lack of uniform standards and interoperability is also another major challenge the market players are facing. Factors restraining the market growth include concerns regarding data security and privacy, unsatisfactory results and negative feedback from RTLS end users, and the high cost of acquisition and maintenance.

STANLEY Healthcare (US), Zebra Technologies Corporation (US), Aruba Networks (US), IMPINJ (US), TeleTracking Technologies (US), CenTrak (US), AiRISTA Flow (US), Sonitor Technologies (Norway), Versus Technology (US), and Identec Group (Liechtenstein) are the major players in the RTLS market for healthcare.

A few key innovators considered in the RTLS market for healthcare are DecaWave (Ireland), Redpine Signals (US), Sanitag (Turkey), Mojix (US), and Intelligent InSites (US), while Cerner Corporation (US), GE Healthcare (US), Secure Care Products (US), Borda Technology (Turkey), Cetani Corp. (US) are a few other prominent players in the RTLS market for healthcare.

Drivers

Increased market competitiveness with the emergence of startups providing innovative and customized RTLS solutions based on newer technologies

The market for RTLS technologies has witnessed rapid growth with the increasing number of players entering this market with innovative and customized RTLS solutions for customers. More than 50 players are active in the RTLS market for healthcare; out of these, top 5 players account for about 70% of the market share. These top companies primarily focus on healthcare, retail, and manufacturing industries and have introduced industry-specific solutions. However, startups and smaller players in the market offer customized solutions and expand their customer base in newer industries such as livestock, agriculture, education, sports, and aerospace & defense, thereby witnessing higher growth and increasing their market share every year. Hence, the high competition in the RTLS market forces RTLS companies to offer application-specific customized products at affordable rates to their customers.

Safety and security concerns in healthcare facilities

Safety and security of people and assets is the key concern of medical institutions, hospitals, factories, and commercial spaces. The rise in the crime rate easy access to healthcare and related services, and the increase in the number of patients to be served are the major factors that compel healthcare organizations to maintain high-level security. According to the healthcare crime survey conducted by the International Association for Healthcare Security and Safety (IAHSS), in 2017, the violent crime (murder, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault) rate per 100 hospital beds was 1.0 in 2016, assault rate per 100 beds was 9.3 in 2016, and disorderly conduct (disturbing the peace, blasphemy, profanity, and obscene language) rate per 100 beds was 34.1 in the US in 2016. This indicates that patient tracking, wander management, and access control are the essential parameters to be trailed in the hospital environment.

Opportunities

Need for resource utilization and workflow optimization

Several industries have faced resource utilization as a major challenge while increasing their output in terms of workflow optimization, production, asset tracking and monitoring, and cost reduction. RTLS addresses these challenges by effectively tracking and monitoring the assets and personnel in numerous industries. Efficient operations and optimum utilization of existing resources help enterprises to save costs and increase profits. In the healthcare industry, asset tracking (both equipment and personnel) helps to improve patient safety and increase the bed utilization ratio. RTLS helps utilize the minimum available resources to provide a better yield by increasing the workflow.

Development of hybrid RTLS solutions

In the recent past, a range of hybrid solutions has emerged to overcome some major challenges associated with a single technology-based RTLS system. Localized RFID/RTLS can provide a solution in areas where GPS has visibility problems, without the infrastructure cost of full-scale RTLS. The result is a robust, easy-to-install, and flexible solution that offers unsurpassed reliability immediately after the deployment.
