February 25, 2005—Market intelligence specialist INPUT published a report this week predicting fantastic years ahead for U.S. government adoption of RFID. Entitled simply "Radio Frequency Identification," the report projects 120% growth in RFID spending by the U.S. federal government through 2009. Despite the aggressive Defense Department initiatives, RFID use among civilian agencies will not pick up until 2007, when non-supply chain applications of the technology emerge. Management of the anticipated flood of data and security of that data are cited as two obstacles to more rapid adoption by the government. The report also predicts that eventually larger consulting and integration firms will win the government RFID contracts, taking over from the smaller niche supply chain pure-plays that have heretofore ruled. Contracts will increase in size, from program-level to agency-wide, thus requiring firms that can offer comprehensive design, integration, and training RFID services for an entire agency.
