Which industries have seen deployments of radio frequency identification technologies?
We have seen deployments of radio frequency identification technologies in just about every industry and in every country and territory. Generally speaking, what these diverse companies have in common is a business problem that no other technology can solve. It might be tracking inventory in retail stores, medical equipment in hospitals or shipping containers in a distribution yard. Given that RFID is delivering value across so many industries and applications, it’s clear that other firms in these sectors will deploy such solutions as costs come down and the benefits are proved. So in a decade or so, the answer to your question will be, “Just about everyone.”
