Description



Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) are used to identify and track different assets and objects such as tools, medical equipment, containers, trailers, people and animals in real time. RTLS provides organizations with precise information on different objects via continuous communication between the location engine and the object to be tracked. The global real time location systems (RTLS) market is driven by enhanced advantages of real time tracking in different manufacturing and business processes. RTLS, with its accurate tracking capabilities, helps organizations in increasing their productivity. 

RTLS provides tracking of different assets such as personnel, tools and medical equipment which helps in reducing wastage of search time and cost incurred due to theft and misplacement. Owing to these advantages, RTLS is expected to be widely adopted, in near term, in industries such as manufacturing, healthcare, government, transportation and logistics and others. Healthcare is one of the earliest adopters of RTLS in applications such as medical equipment tracking, patient tracking and monitoring. Manufacturing and process industries too are expected to witness substantial demand during the forecast period with increasing adoption of RTLS in their processes.

Free Market Analysis


Advanced features such as enhanced quality of care, cost savings, increased efficiency, and asset and workflow management offered by Real Time location Systems (RTLS) are fueling the adoption of RTLS across various industries. RTLS help enterprises to track, identify and manage important assets such as tools, personnel and equipment in real time by putting a badge/tag on them. Badges/tags utilize wireless technologies such as infrared, ultrasound, Wi-Fi, ZigBee and RF signals for communication between readers and tags and send signals to the location sensors/readers. These sensors/readers then communicate with software/middleware platform that analyzes the data and correlates useful information to improve staff productivity and operational efficiency in an enterprise.

Optimum utilization of resources and asset management with RTLS solutions is expected to drive demand for RTLS solutions during the forecast period. Moreover, due to decreasing prices of RTLS components and government support encouraging the use of RTLS is expected to increase adoption during the forecast period.

In terms of technology, RFID led the global RTLS market with highest revenue share in 2013. This was mainly due to advanced features of RFID technology such as high accuracy, low cost, long battery life of tags, and low maintenance costs as compared to WI-Fi. However, ZigBee and UWB are emerging technologies with tremendous market potential, mainly due to long battery life, enhanced accuracy and high location precision. One of the most significant advantages of Wi-Fi in RTLS is the ease of deployment. Wi-Fi based RTLS systems are mostly deployed in organizations with an existing Wi-Fi network. 

In 2013, North America held the largest market share and accounted for 45.4% of the global RTLS market revenue. Applications in healthcare industry have primarily driven the demand for RTLS solutions in the North American market. Due to the existing healthcare-IT infrastructure in North America, companies in this market were able to gain leverage and deploy RTLS solutions in the healthcare industry. Furthermore, a key factor playing pivotal role in driving the growth of RTLS market in North America is government support. In 2013, U.S. government Veteran Affairs deployed RTLS from Hewlett Packard in several medical centers across the U.S. The Asia Pacific region is expected to be the fastest growing regional market for RTLS solutions. One of the key factors driving market growth in the Asia Pacific region is the rise in demand from countries such as Japan, Singapore and South Korea. Other factors such as rising customer awareness and high industrial growth will also propel the adoption of RTLS in Asia Pacific region.
