November 11, 2004—Deloitte & Touche has released a research report which looks at RFID within Canada entitled "2004 Canadian Radio Frequency Identification Study." Collected from surveys with senior executives from the top 30 Canadian retail and consumer companies, the survey's findings paint a largely optimistic view of RFID adoption in Canada. Some of the more important data:
  • A full 93% of those interviewed believe that RFID will impact their business.
  • 47% are likely to implement an RFID system within their corporation, with half of those aiming to do so in the coming two years and 29% in the following two years.
  • 71% are proactively considering an RFID implementation.
Not surprisingly, cost was cited by half of all respondents as the biggest hurdle to implementing RFID. It's interesting to note that standards were not considered a major hurdle, given that the lack-of-standards issue almost always is in studies like these. Perhaps that is an indication from would-be Canadian RFID implementors that they see EPCglobal's ratification of the second generation standard as so close and so assured that the standards hurdle has now essentially been overcome.
