[102 Report Pages] The global Real-Time Locating System market is likely to witness significant growth during the forecast period. The market is driven by various factors including increasing importance to improve operational performance across the value chain, expanding analytics solutions coupled with rising focus on smart workflow optimization, and consistent demand for RTLS in healthcare settings. However, data security, privacy concerns, and high initial cost along with complexity in integrating with the existing infrastructure are the key factors identified as restraints which are likely to deter the progression of the global RTLS market. Additionally, other driving factors such as rise of digital manufacturing, integration of RTLS with blockchain technology, and proliferation of IoT solutions across industries is anticipated create new business opportunities for vendors present in the global RTLS Market.
Real-time location system (RTLS) is a type of positioning system used to identify, locate, and track objects in real-time through automatic and continuous feedback. RTLS solutions uses software location engine that calculates the location of tag attached to an item by using Angle of Arrival (AoA), Time Difference of Arrival (TDoA) and/or Radio Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI). RTLS solutions can be deployed through various communication technologies such as UWB, RFID, WiFi, and others. Choosing appropriate technology is largely dependent on the type of application, use environment, and compliance requirements.
