Broadening its horizon and scope of study on RFID applications market, RNCOS market research report “RFID Industry (2005-2007) — An Update (Insight to European Market)” focuses on the emerging market for RFID application in European Union. Valued at €400million in 2004, the European market is estimated to escalate, reaching approximately €2.5billion by 2008. The report segregates the market into four different zones (Baltic, Nordic, Scandinavia and Western Europe), and provides an in-depth analysis of the RFID Industry across Europe till 2007.
Europe, in the recent times, has witnessed a large number of RFID and contactless application vendors and developers finding a strong foothold, with the German manufacturers dominating the market with an expected volume of nearly 600 million units. This is followed by France and UK—each with an RFID market volume of nearly 500 million units, as of 2004. In view of the new research and development centers opening in Netherlands, Denmark, and other Nordic and Scandinavian countries, analysts expect that, by the second half of 2006, this trend will see more companies expanding on their initial pilots. This will further lead to an increase in the total expenditure on RFID deployments in supply chain applications, especially in Western Europe worth approximately €467million by 2009.
