Global Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) Market to Reach US$ 95.8 Billion by 2027, Influenced by Growing Automation Across Various Industries

Published on Apr 12, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) market size reached US$ 43.7 Billion in 2021. Automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) refers to the process of obtaining, recording, and converting data into a digital file. It identifies the object and enters the related file into the computer without any human intervention. The stored data file is then compared with other files in a database to provide access to a secured system. Some of the most commonly used AIDC solutions include barcodes, radio frequency identification (RFID) tags and readers, magnetic stripes, voice recognition, and handheld and fixed-position scanners. These solutions are widely utilized to manage assets, documents, inventory security and delivery processes across various industries.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
