【ボストン2017年10月26日PR Newswire=共同通信JBN】IDTechEx Researchは、RFID市場が全体で2017年から2018年に5%の安定成長で117億6000万ドル規模になると評価している。この全市場の小さな下部領域ながら2017年から2018年に12%の急成長をするのはRFIDセンサーである。RFIDプロトコルの1つに基づく無線通信のセンサーである。



BluetoothやWi-Fiなどの他の無線プロトコルではなくRFIDトランシーバを使う利点は安価なことである。RFID ICは世界で最も安い集積回路だ。小さな電池だけの低消費電力で、電池なしの選択肢もある。世界中の企業で近距離無線通信(NFC)電話からRAIN RFIDリーダー・インフラストラクチャーまで利用が増えているRFIDインフラを活用できる。

IDTechEx Researchの新報告書「RFID Sensors 2018-2028」で説明したように、異なるRFID周波数でそれぞれ作動できる複数のRFIDセンサーの選択肢がある。最も定着した技術は電池利用RFIDセンサーで、センサー測定に電源を使う。もっと最近では、作動させるRFIDリーダーの側にあるときだけセンサー信号を出し、その結果、用途が限定される電池なしの(パッシブ)RFIDセンサーが出現した。しかし、パッシブRFIDセンサーは電源を一体化する必要がないからより単純で安い。



「RFID Sensors 2018-2028」はRFIDセンサーに関する徹底調査であり、100以上の組織をカバーし、ケーススタディー、技術と周波数ごとの詳細な市場予測、現在と将来の課題と見通しを提示している。IDTechExは1999年以来、世界のRFID市場を調査しており、供給者、利用者への直接面談に基づいた詳細で偏らない知見をもたらす。詳細は を参照。

IDTechEx Finds That Passive RFID Sensors Overtake Battery Assisted RFID Sensors


BOSTON, October 26, 2017 /PRNewswire=KYODO JBN/--

IDTechEx Research assesses that the entire RFID market will be worth $11.76

Billion in 2018, up a steady 5% from 2017. A small sub sector of that entire

market, but one which will grow at a faster rate of 12% from 2017 to 2018, is

the market for RFID sensors. These are sensors with wireless communication

based on one of the RFID protocols.

The benefit of using a RFID transceiver over other wireless protocols such as

Bluetooth or Wifi is that RFID transceivers are inexpensive - RFID ICs are the

cheapest integrated circuits in the world; they are low power, with only a

small battery needed and no battery is also an option; and they can leverage

the increasing RFID infrastructure being deployed, from near field

communication (NFC) phones to RAIN RFID reader infrastructure in businesses

around the world.

As explained in the new IDTechEx Research report RFID Sensors 2018-2028, there

are several RFID sensor options which can each work at different RFID

frequencies. The most established technology has been battery assisted RFID

sensors, which use a power source to take sensor measurements. More recently

there have been battery-less (passive) RFID sensors which only take sensor

readings while close to the RFID reader which energizes it, limiting their

application as a result. Passive RFID sensors are, however, simpler and cheaper

since no power source needs to be integrated.

IDTechEx has found that the average sales price of battery assisted RFID

sensors in 2017 is $16 versus $1 for passive RFID sensors. While businesses in

battery assisted RFID sensors tend to peak at about 25,000 units sold annually,

with the total 2017 sales of 330,000 units for that type of technology, passive

RFID sensors have found many high volume niches resulting in an estimated 5.2

million passive RFID sensors sold in 2017.

In total, the market value for all four types of RFID sensors identified in the

report is $10.5 million in 2017, rising to almost $400 million in 2027.

RFID Sensors 2018-2028 provides thorough research on RFID sensors, with over

100 organizations covered, case studies, detailed market projections by

technology and frequency, as well as current and future challenges and

opportunities. IDTechEx has studied the global RFID market since 1999, bringing

in-depth, impartial insight based on direct interviews with suppliers and

users. For more information see
