The global RFID in Healthcare market size is expected to be worth around US$ 11. 60billion by 2028, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global RFID in Healthcare market size was valued at US$ 3.58 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 23.4% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.

Growth Factors

High operational costs associated with the healthcare industry is expected to boost the adoption of RFID technology in healthcare organizations. Pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, hospitals, and various other healthcare organizations integrate this technology to control inventory costs. RFID technology enables these organizations in efficient inventory management and help avoid stock out and overstock situations. RFID tags enable the surgical staff in easy tracking of medical devices used in operation theatres, thereby improving patient safety. Growing requirement for reduction in operating costs is expected to drive the increase in adoption of RFID. This technology is also used in laboratories, blood banks, and pathology labs for efficient product tracking and better workflow management.

The use of RFID technology enables better communication, adequate patient monitoring, patient identification, and patient tracking. This method aids in decreasing medication errors and increases safety. The rising need for patient monitoring and mandates for increasing safety are also contributing to the growth. Patient tracking across different hospital sections using this technology helps reduce waiting times and is thus gaining significance in hospitals.

Report Highlights

Pharmaceutical tracking segment generated the largest revenue of USD 778.88 million in 2020 sing adoption of the technology to identify the counterfeit drugs is among the key factors contributing to the growth. Pharmaceutical tracking systems are considered beneficial to organizations, patients, and supply chain partners.

In the recent years, there has been an increase in the proliferation and distribution of counterfeit drugs that pose an increased risk for health hazards. The RFID technology assists in screening and detection of such drugs and help in refraining from the distribution in the market. Furthermore, this technology in pharmaceutical companies helps in inventory management and minimizing the labelling errors. These advantages help reduce the wastes and thereby decreases the unwanted costs incurred.

However, the patient tracking segment is anticipated to witness the highest growth over the forecast period. Patient tracking in large and medium hospitals is a critical process for scheduling operating room and diagnostic room appointments. Tracking the movement of each patient across different sections of hospital using this technology helps reduce the turnaround and waiting time and hence the segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR owing to the associated advantages. Increasing investments by medium and large hospitals is expected to boost the growth. For instance, in 2015, Wayne HealthCare, a hundred-bed hospital in Ohio, U.S., purchased an RFID patient tracking system for better management of patient information.

The tags segment held the largest market share and is expected to register the fastest CAGR of 22.6% over the forecast period. Rising awareness regarding the benefits of these devices is expected to drive the growth. These systems can be used at any location to track and trace different types of assets, thereby enabling easy access to inventory, faster processing, and real-time asset monitoring.

North America held the largest market share of about 45% in 2018, attributed to the key factors, such as rising number of hospitals, increase in regulations for patient safety, and mandates for tracking medical devices. Presence of developed healthcare infrastructure and high adoption of advanced technologies in healthcare are some other factors contributing to the regional growth. U.S. is the largest market in this region, contributed to high adoption of this technology in healthcare services. High awareness regarding the advantages of incorporating RFID coupled with growing concerns regarding the risk of medication errors contribute to the regional growth.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR of 24.9% during the forecast period. The region has a large number of pharmaceutical and life science companies with an increasing demand for efficient supply chain management. Rising healthcare expenditure, presence of large pharmaceutical industry, and improving healthcare infrastructure are some of the key factors that can be attributed for to the regional demand. The region has large patient pool with chronic and infectious diseases. Increasing disease burden is expected to boost the demand for efficient healthcare services, thereby contributing to the market growth.
