2. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
RTLS is a type of technology that identifies the current location of a target,
ranging from a vehicle to an item in a manufacturing plant to a person.
Wireless RTLS tags are attached to objects and in most RTLS, fixed

reference points receive wireless signals from tags to determine their


location. The key driving factor for the growth of this market is the
provision for precise asset tracking. However, people are not very keen to
adopt the system as they perceive it to be an invasion on their
privacy. Governments across the globe understand these concerns of people
and are making regulations to protect privacy of people.

This report categorizes the market into five different segments, namely,
market by type of component, technology, end use industry, application and
geography. Based on the component the market has been classified into tags
(hardware), software and sensors. The technology segments Wi-Fi,
Bluetooth, Active RFID, UWB and others. The applications include
Healthcare, Defence, Manufacturing, Logistics and others. Based on
applications the report has been segmented into asset tracking, patients
activity tracking, fleet/vehicle tracking, personnel tracking and others.
Based on the geography, the report has been segmented into North
America, Europe, APAC, and RoW.
The growing awareness regarding RTLS in APAC region is projected to spur
the market as customer demand rises. The growing demand for accuracy in
vehicle and goods tracking has led to increased adoption of GPS based
RTLS. RTLS offers improved operational efficiency and thus has found
increased penetration in manufacturing and logistics industries. The
government grants for RTLS systems is set to raise awareness regarding
these systems and propel the market.
The global RTLS market is projected to generate revenue amounting to
more than $7bn by 2020 with a CAGR of 20.1%

KEY MARKET INSIGHTS


The growing safety issues and advancing technology is leading to the
growth of RTLS market:

A new feature called SOS button is being installed in all radio


cabs in India for the safety of passengers. This button once
pressed, sends the real time location of the passenger to the
nearest police control room. This feature increases awareness
regarding RTLS in the large potential market of India while
increasing penetration.

Privacy Concerns regarding location tracking have hampered the


utilization of these systems in enterprise applications

GPS systems have found increased adoption as customer demand


for high accuracy levels rises, particularly in fleet tracking,
logistics and defence industries.

The lack of awareness regarding utilization of these products in


healthcare and manufacturing in APAC and South America has
hampered growth. However this lack of awareness is being
eradicated as increased utilization of RTLS in defence and
logistics has brought the products to the forefront.

Logistics companies have increased adoption of RTLS as they


offer improved accuracy in tracking and improve operational
efficiency.

Growing standardization RTLS equipment has led to increased


deployment in the healthcare industry as declining costs and
slower Obsoletion of devices lead to increased customer demand.

Growing government funding for RTLS in schools and healthcare


industry is projected to propel the RTLS market as well as raise
awareness leading to increased penetration.

4.1. Market Constraints
4.1.1. Privacy Concerns in RTLS hampering market growth

One of the restraints for RTLS market continues to be related to the privacy
issues.
Concerns have already been raised about this issue in the
manufacturing market, especially, regarding personnel tracking. Customers
are apprehensive about these systems possibly being used for remote
monitoring, vehicle tracking and other reprehensible utilization of RTLS in
non-work related situations. The major privacy concerns are regarding the
collection and storing of personal tracking data. According to a recent survey
by Zebra Technologies, nearly half the responders were highly concerned
regarding the privacy and security of their collected data. Thus these
concerns need to be dispelled before RTLS is adopted by customers. Unless

privacy concerns are allayed, a significant portion of the potential customers


will be unattainable. Growing privacy concerns is a hindrance in the RTLS
market and need to be resolved.
