The market research report, “RFID: Outlook China” discusses the current and anticipated market for RFID technology in china. It explains the government policies and the approach government takes towards RFID. It analyses the various applications of RFID in China and the state of RFID industry in China. The report further identifies the opportunities and challenges faced by RFID technology in implementation. The report presents an account of the key players and introduces the major Chinese RFID vendors, including IC vendors, hardware vendors, packaging and tag vendors, and integrators.
- In the Chinese market, the applications of low frequency and high frequency RFID are relatively mature. On the brighter side, there will be massive applications of ultra-high frequency RFID in 2008, particularly in supply chain management. It will be supported by the well-developed standards and technologies.
- Beijing, Shanghai and the Pearl River Delta have become the three central areas for development of RFID applications in China.
- The retail sector of china is increasingly employing RFID technology for improving their supply chain efficiencies. The growth is attributed to Wal-Mart mandates and growing awareness of RFID technology.
- Minimized cost and higher automation (reducing the need for manual intervention) are the two main growth drivers of RFID in Supply Chain Management.
- Around 75% of the total RFID firms in China are involved in low frequency/high frequency band (LF/HF) band, which is well developed technically and widely applied in hardware including chips, antennas, tags and readers.
- Between the HF 13.56 MHz and the Ultra High Frequency (UHF) 860-960MHz, China is presently using HF in its ID card applications, while the railway systems project is using UHF.
- The National High-Tech Research and Development Plan, also known as the 863 Plan released by China’s Ministry of Science and Technology, has detailed 20 major RFID programs that the national government will allocate more than US$ 16 Million in support of these programs.
- The rollout of 1.3 billion second-generation resident identification cards based on RFID is one of the largest RFID projects in China.
