Literature Review

The global industry for RFID technology has been growing steadily and is expected to expand fast for some time in the future. The dwindling prices of RFID tags are a driver for widespread adoption of item level tagging. Currently, the United States has the largest market worldwide, followed by Europe. Although developed markets such as US and Europe continue to remain the largest revenue generators for RFID manufacturers and software developers for some time, future growth in the market will be primarily driven by major Asian countries such as China and South Korea with the support extended by their governments (PRWeb, 2012).
