RFID in the Future

Infographics seem to be popping up everywhere these days, but it’s rare that I find one on something related to the AIDC industry. I recently came across an infographic on the future of RFID and wanted to share.

The infographic calls attention to the RFID industry and its rapid expansion. Did you know the RFID Market will generate $70.5 billion from 2012 through 2017? By the end of 2012 alone, 1.5 billion RFID tags will be applied to apparel and 50 million electronic devices will be RFID enabled.

As more mobile devices become RFID enabled, I wonder how the convergence of RFID, 4G, GPS, NFC and barcodes will impact our daily lives in terms of mobility and capability. While RFID has come a long way over the years, it still has a long way to go before becoming fully mainstream. Share your thoughts by commenting below, or on our facebook or twitter pages.
