2011 RFID Brand Report and 2011 RFID Marketing Strategies Report

The only reports that rank the leading RFID brands and measure the impact of RFID marketing vehicles.
Feb 02, 2011

Most marketing budgets have been under pressure due to recent worldwide economic recessions. So now, more than ever, it is critical to have solid information and research on which to base your key marketing decisions. These are the only reports that rank the leading RFID brands and measure the impact of RFID marketing vehicles, so they provide RFID marketers with information critical to creating a killer, cost-effective RFID marketing strategy.

Each report is available for $899, or you can purchase both reports for $1099—a $600 savings! RFID Journal premium members save an extra 10% off all report prices. (Just log in before you make your purchase to automatically receive the discount.)


2011 RFID Brand Report
The 2011 RFID Brand Report, based on a survey of more than 500 RFID Journal readers, ranks the best-known and most respected companies in the RFID market overall, as well as in these critical market segments: passive tags and chips, passive readers, printer-encoders, active RFID systems and RFID software.

Brand awareness and product reputation are critical to any company's success, especially those in a complex niche market like RFID. As adoption of the technology accelerates, there is no doubt that a handful of leading players will dominate the landscape. They will be the "gorillas," to use a term coined by Geoffrey Moore, author of Crossing the Chasm, Inside the Tornado and other books about technology adoption. These winners will be difficult to displace once they have come to dominate a market segment. Those who spend wisely now in critical marketing channels will establish their brand and compete for gorilla status, and will be rewarded with market share and a loyal customer base. Those that remain largely unknown will likely go out of business, or be bought up for low earnings multiples. (View the contents page, with a complete list of charts and tables included in the report.)

Among the key questions answered by the 2011 RFID Brand Report are:

  • What are the 10 most recognized RFID companies?
  • How important is brand when making RFID purchasing decisions?
  • Which companies do end users consider to offer the best RFID products?
  • Which are the most recognized providers of passive chips and tags?
  • Which are the most recognized providers of passive readers?
  • Which are the most recognized providers of RFID label printer-encoders?
  • Which are the most recognized providers of active RFID solutions?
  • Which are the most recognized providers of RFID software and services?
