Published on Oct 12, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Barcode Scanner Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026,” the global barcode scanner market witnessed strong growth during 2015-2020. A barcode scanner, also known as a point-of-sale scanner or a barcode reader, refers to a handheld device used to read and record the information contained in a barcode. It consists of a lens, light source and light sensor for capturing and decoding barcodes. Some commonly used barcode scanners include camera-based scanners, laser scanners, pen wands and charge-coupled device (CCD) scanners. They find extensive applications in warehouse management as they provide a real-time overview of products stored in a warehouse.

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.

Global Barcode Scanner Market Trends:

The growing adoption of barcode scanners by retailers across the globe for a hassle-free recording of supplies and commodities represents the primary factor driving the market. Barcode scanners assist in recording information, such as date of manufacturing, product count, selling price and date of supply to the retailer, printed on the product packaging in the form of a barcode. Additionally, the rising popularity of these scanners across the healthcare sector for managing the medical records of patients has bolstered the market growth. Furthermore, the demand for barcode scanners has escalated as they help improve the accuracy of the recorded data by minimizing human error in recording and managing information online. Besides this, the introduction of two-dimensional (2D) barcodes, such as data matrix and quick response (QR) code, further increases the product applications across various sectors. On account of these factors, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 9% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
