The global real time location system market experienced double-digit growth during 2014-2019. The Real Time Location System (RTLS) assists in identifying and tracking the geographical location of objects and people in real time. It is primarily used in navigation, and vehicle, inventory and personnel tracking and consists of location sensors, readers, battery-powered tags, network infrastructure and application software. It operates by attaching tags and badges to objects or people through which the signals are transmitted and received by a fixed reference point. This system is extensively used to boost productivity, accuracy and operational excellence. It also enhances staff safety and provides effective logistics and supply chain operations, owing to which it is deemed beneficial for evacuation procedures and accounting for all the resources present inside a closed space.
The market is significantly driven by the increasing usage of smartphones and mobile, gaming, communication and health and wellness applications that require constant access to user information. Additionally, rapid urbanization and increasing requirement for advanced security systems are further driving the product demand. Moreover, increased application in various end use industries such as transportation, inventory and warehouse management, along with inbound and outbound logistics management, is also expected to propel the growth of the market. RTLS is also finding wide applicability in warehouses, correctional facilities, and retail stores, where it assists in monitoring the location of a target and tracking any misplaced items. Along with this, the implementation of favorable government policies that promote the use of advanced monitoring systems along with various technological advancements and increasing focus on research and development (R&D) is also catalyzing the growth of the market globally. Looking forward, the global real time location system market is expected to continue its strong growth during the next five years.
