What Is the Future of RFID in the Cylinder Industry?

Posted By RFID Journal, 05.05.2015

Has there been a growth in radio frequency identification use in that sector?

I believe that eventually, all cylinders will be tagged with radio frequency identification transponders. However, it will take years to achieve. The industry is not centralized, and doesn't have a handful of big users that could drive the technology's adoption. So companies are choosing or not choosing to use RFID on their own cylinders. Despite the annual losses that most companies face—due to lost, stolen or damaged cylinders—many choose not to invest in RFID.

As RFID takes hold in other industries, costs will come down and CEOs will realize that they can use the technology to better manage their cylinders. Over time, a growing number of companies will adopt the technology.
