RFID market prospects of a broad industry trend analysis
With the rise of China's Internet of Things, the RFID industry has drawn wide attention and has been widely used in many fields such as logistics, transportation, national defense and military affairs. Once RFID industrialization, its application is expected to further enrich the area, and ultimately reach the physical world network positioning, while showing new trends.
The future of RFID is vast
With the maturity and popularization of RFID technology, our government realizes that the application of RFID technology will bring a positive effect to the development of many industries and speed up the formulation of relevant policies to promote the development of RFID industry. In recent years, the relevant government departments on RFID policy support continued to increase, for the development of RFID to create a good environment for growth. With the further maturation of technology and the further reduction of costs, the application of RFID in China has gradually spread from various sectors led by government-led projects.
According to statistics, China's RFID and Internet of Things industry usher in a rare opportunity for development since China's development of the Internet of Things was formally included in the national development strategy in 2010. In 2014, the market size of China's RFID industry was 31.1 billion yuan, an increase of 30% over 2013. The market size in 2015 was 37.3 billion yuan.
RFID industry trends
First of all, high-frequency is still the mainstream, ultra-high frequency is the future trend of development. In China, RFID has become a mature application model in areas such as e-tickets, access control and mobile payment. Applications in these areas are mostly concentrated in the low and high frequency bands. High-frequency applications, the domestic manufacturers of chip design, manufacturing and ticket production process, packaging technology have shown a strong competitive strength and advantages, after several years of development, the domestic high-frequency RFID industry chain has caught up with international standards, Become a new force in this market. Currently, UHF RFID occupies only about 10% of the overall market, but within 5 years it will become the mainstream of the RFID market.
Second, there is a huge market potential for software and system integration. The basis of China's information is relatively weak, the real advantage of the RFID application is still relatively small. Software in simple RFID applications, the price is still relatively low, and some even provide users with the bonus, integration costs are relatively low. With the development of large-scale logistics applications and open-loop applications, software will be a significant part of RFID project expenditure, and in some applications may even exceed the cost of hardware.
Third, the chip manufacturing capacity of Chinese enterprises will gradually be strengthened. Chinese enterprises at this stage to grasp the ability of RFID technology needs to be strengthened, the domestic chip only a very high frequency and a very small amount of ultra-high frequency products in the future the Chinese government and enterprises, in order to ensure the interests of the R & D will certainly increase the intensity of chip manufacturing Capability is one of the most important directions. The chip manufacturing capability of Chinese enterprises will be gradually strengthened.
Finally, a unified standard, with international standards will be China's future focus of RFID. Each RFID tag has a unique pairing ID, and if its data format is diverse and incompatible, RFID products that use different standards will not be interoperable, and the circulation of goods under the economic globalization will be Severely restricted. Therefore, the standard is not unified is an important factor affecting the global development of RFID.
At present, the specific standard content has not yet been fully implemented, but it is certain that coding management, core technologies and databases will be the focus of RFID work in the future. Nowadays, many countries in Europe and the United States have started to set their own standards one after another. How to make these standards compatible with each other so that an RFID product can be smoothly circulated around the world is the direction of future standard development.
