[photopress:logistics_rfid.jpg,full,alignright]Radio frequency identification first appeared in tracking and access applications during the 1980s. They are wonderful. They tell without physical counting or opening of cargo what is in there and where it is going.
They can cut crime, minimize handling and handling errors. They are a very good thing.
For China they are damn near essential and there is no surprise in the fact that the RFID market reached more than $500 million in 2007. This is 50% up on the previous year and looking at trends the next three years look pretty healthy.
According to IDTechEx, China has become the world’s largest market for RFID by value, in part due to investments for the Beijing 2008 Olympics.
The release of regulations for UHF 800/900 RFID; the first RFID company to go public; the planning and establishment of RFID industrial parks in Dongguang, Fushan, Shenyang, Shandong and other cities, all these signs forecast a brilliant future for the RFID industry in China.
RFIDWorld China and RFID China Alliance have launched a big, non-profit RFID event — 2007 China RFID Industry Annual Awards — where they can all pat each other on the back and say what a great job they are doing. And, indeed, it is a great job. Without RFID China’s current boom would probably not happened on the same scale.
Weiqi Yang, RFIDWorld China’s president said about the awards, ‘It’s the biggest and most authoritative voting, it will have a positive impact on RFID industry and consumer RFID education through encouraging RFID companies to participate, sharing their information and experiences. No other RFID industry event offers more learning, and makes available more resources for people who want to get an insight into RFID market in China’.
The products submitted cover a wide range of frequencies (125KHz, 13.56MHz, 433 MHz, 915MHz, 2.45GHz), and include all kind of RFID products, such as RFID chip, label, reader, middleware, software, label converter, RFID tag testing device and RFID system.
