Next Generation Asset Tracking Technologies, Opportunities, and Revenues

3Q 2016 | Application Analysis Report | AN-2059 | 33 pages | 2 tables | 6 charts | PDF

The primary aim of this report is to look at how the requirements of the traditional RTLS and asset tracking markets are changing, and what new disruptive technologies are emerging to meet these needs. While the report does consider legacy technologies, such as passive and active RFID, UWB, and Wi-Fi, the main focus is on new technologies, primarily BLE and next-generation UWB as well as discussing LED/VLC, Magnetic field, and inertial sensors. The report will illustrate new companies within these spaces that will drive innovation over the next five years, as well as outlining how the incumbent can respond. The report also identifies a number of new emerging applications and new start-ups that are creating the technology that will change this market over the forecast period. This report focuses on three main market segmentations where these technologies are typically deployed: asset tracking, RTLS, and supply chain management. Tag infrastructure and software/service revenue forecasts are provided for each of these verticals, split by each for the major technologies covered.
