How I Fared on 2015's Predictions
The RFID industry made progress, but not as I had expected.
Jan 06, 2016—
In my first column of a new year, I usually spell out what I expect will happen in the radio frequency identification industry during the coming year. I'd like to start this year by taking a look back at my last predictions (see 10 Predictions for 2015). Next week, I'll share my thoughts on 2016.
Prediction 1: Apparel retailers will continue to adopt RFID.
This proved to be true. Decathlon, an international sporting goods retailer, has rolled out the technology (see Decathlon Sees Sales Rise and Shrinkage Drop, Aided by RFID). But I am disappointed that we didn't see others outside of apparel retail announcing deployments (many pilots are currently underway).
Prediction 3: Interest in RFID will expand across all industries, driven by news of big retail deployments.
Prediction 4: Continued expansion of the Airbus RFID initiative will drive adoption in the airline industry.
Prediction 5: Consolidation in the RFID industry will continue.
