Can you please tell me where this information has been reported?
It is difficult to find reliable numbers, since businesses are not required to report the number of RFID transponders they use each year. However, companies such as ABI Research, Frost & Sullivan and VDC Research conduct surveys of transponder manufacturers in order to obtain estimates of the volumes of tags sold annually. You can contact these firm for breakdowns of European transponder use.
