Dublin, Oct. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/lrgvv6/global_rfid) has announced the addition of the "Global RFID Semiconductor Market in the Apparel Industry 2012-2016" report to their offering.

The analysts forecast the Global Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Semiconductor market in the Apparel industry to grow at a CAGR of 19.8 percent over the period 2012-2016. Mandates made by retail giants that require suppliers to use RFID is one of the key factors contributing to this market growth. The Global RFID Semiconductor market in the Apparel industry has also been witnessing increasing R&D spending. However, the high initial investment required to deploy RFID devices could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: In recent years, the vendors in the Global RFID Semiconductor market in the Apparel industry are increasing their R&D spending on RFID semiconductors. Leading vendors such as NXP Semiconductors, Impinj, Alien Technology, and EM Microelectronics have increased their investment in the R&D of RFID semiconductors. Moreover, they are partnering with software and hardware suppliers and value-added resellers for making significant investments in R&D. Further, the focus on R&D is helping vendors to introduce RFIDs that are inexpensive and more effective. Thus, high accuracy, lower price, and better integration ability is leading to the faster adoption of RFID solutions among major end-users in the market.

According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the mandates made by major retail giants that require their suppliers to use RFID devices. Most of the retail giants such as Wal-Mart have instructed their suppliers to use RFID tags on every pallet that they supply.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the requirement for high initial investment for the deployment of RFIDs. The high cost is a major barrier that prevents the adoption of RFIDs by small and medium sized apparel retailers globally.
