If so, does RFID Journal provide such information?

I have not seen any such rankings, sorry—and even if there were one, it would be suspect. There are no reporting requirements, so no one would know if a small company in Germany deployed a tool-tracking system, or if a big company in the United States is using RFID to track files. Anecdotally, based on the stories we have published, the United States and Europe appear to be leading the technology's adoption, followed by Asia and Latin America.

RFID Journal has created a map on which businesses can enter information about their deployments (see RFID Deployments Worldwide). But obviously, not everyone who deploys RFID enters their details on the map.

If any of our readers have seen a ranking, or have other information to offer, please comment below.
