Availability of Cheaper Alternatives Encroach on Market Share and Earnings of RFID Tags
On the flip side, the U.S. RFID tags market is likely to suffer due to wide availability of cheaper alternatives such as the barcode systems. The usage of barcode systems has grown over the years, which has had a negative influence on the overall market. Several end users are opting for barcode systems as they help in integrated inventory management. Furthermore, the higher capital investment in introducing RFID systems over barcodes is also dissuading end users. Growing concerns pertaining to the privacy of customers with RFID technology has also challenged the growth of the overall market.
