 This report provides the key data and analysis of extensive research including interviews with RFID adopters and solution providers in the various applicational RFID markets, giving an unprecedented level of insight into the total RFID industry and what is really happening. 
   
 IDTechEx find that in 2014, the total RFID market is worth $8.89 billion, up from $7.77 billion in 2013 and $6.96 billion in 2012. This includes tags, readers and software/services for RFID cards, labels, fobs and all other form factors. IDTechEx forecast that to rise to $27.31 billion in 2024. 
   
   
 In retail, RFID is seeing rapid growth for apparel tagging - that application alone demands 3 billion RFID labels in 2014 - which still has some way to go with RFID penetrating about 7% of the total...
