The Global Real Time Location System (RTLS) Market is estimated to reach USD 16.3 Billion by 2027 at a CAGR of 21.3%, says forencis research (FSR).
Real time location system (RTLS) system or indoor positioning system (IPS) mainly used for indoor applications such as tracking, monitoring, and locating the activity of peoples and things. In this technology, location data is received from the location transmitter devices attached to walls or ceilings and transmitted via Wi-Fi or other wireless technologies to asset tags for equipment and wearables for people. Then this location data can be accessed through cloud-based application program interfaces, integrated CRM software, and mobile applications. RTLS is mainly used in healthcare, manufacturing, smart warehouses, educations, hospitality, and other industries.
The smartphone is the most dominant portal of information and communication technology. Increasing population in developing countries has led to an increase in the demand for the smartphone. The use of smart phone for emergency management and incident response is totally based on RTLS technology to track the object location and people in real time. This is usually done within a building or other encloused area. The locating data mostly accessed by mobile application and hence it is expected to drive the real time location system (RTLS) market during the forecast period.
Growing healthcare, manufacturing, and defense markets is expected to boost the real time location system (RTLS) market during the forecasted period. In recent years, government and defense sectors are increased rapidly, thus, to fulfill the security demand and locating important assets in the supply chain management in addition to prisoners and personnel will be expected to grow the real time location system (RTLS) market during the forecast period. In Healthcare, the security of electronic health records and the safety of patients, and valuable assets have also resulted in higher demand for real time location system (RTLS) market.
According to MGM Solutions, RTLS tracking fails 40% of the time while in use due to connectivity issues and Wi-Fi or other technology failures while sending the location data. Due to this, the company can suffer from various problems such as loss of data, wasting operational time, and money. Moreover, RTLS system cannot always penetrate through thick walls, leaving the tracking system at a significant loss. Hence, systems incompatibility issues such as connectivity problems, loss of data, and technology failure are expected to restrain the market growth during the forecast period.
