Aim and scope

The RFID barometer aims at providing an updated worldwide insight into RFID technology deployment in fashion and apparel retail.

The barometer highlights who is adopting, the major use cases of RFID adoption and how they are evolving over time, as well as hardware, software and tags used.

Started in 2013 and updated on a regular basis, in 2019 the database counts 150+ records ranging from feasibility studies to full deployments, 100+ end users worldwide, 18 different use cases, 90+ system integrators, 23k+ stores and more than 1B tags mapped.
