The real time location system market has been segmented based on type and application. The type segment has been further segmented as radio frequency identification (RFID), Wi-Fi, ultrasound, infrared, and ZigBee (Bluetooth Low Energy). RFID accounts for the largest market share, by type, with 46.5% in 2018 and is projected to register a CAGR of 26.7% during the forecast period. Furthermore, the applications segment has been segmented as healthcare, government and defense, transportation & logistics, industrial manufacturing, and retail. The healthcare industry holds the largest market due to high demand of the systems for tracking and monitoring devices and individuals.
The increasing demand for RTLS in the healthcare industry is considered as a major factor for driving the market. RTLS has shown potential to transform hospital processes such as asset temperature monitoring, bed capacity management, patient/provider workflow, patient elopement, security, and other location-dependent applications. RTLS enables a more accurate assessment of the exact number, location, and functionality of medical devices which has enabled hospitals to focus on improving patient care and reduce capital expenses. These systems also identify and manage inefficient use of human resources. Moreover, the increasing demand for RTLS due to Industry 4.0 is another factor that drives the market growth. Industrial processes are increasingly getting automated due to the rapid development of technologies including IoT, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and virtual reality. There is a rise in demand for asset tracking solutions such as RTLS in manufacturing due to the benefits it has offered in terms of providing full visibility of assets, processes, resources, and products.
