Soaring Popularity of Fleet Management Propels Global RTLS Market in Transportation and Logistics Sector

Published Date : Dec 26, 2016

ALBANY, NY, Dec 26, 2016: After extensive primary and secondary research, the report forecasts the global real-time location system (RTLS) market in the transportation and logistics sector to register a staggering CAGR of 49.23% in the period during 2016 and 2020.

A real-time location system finds application in tracking, managing, and identifying the geographical location of a target, which can range from an object in a manufacturing facility to a vehicle or a person. To do so, an RTLS, which is mostly embedded in an object such as a mobile phone or navigational system, leverages wireless nodes or tags and readers. Current real-time location systems leverage wireless technologies, namely Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, etc. RLTS-enabled products are rapidly finding application in retail, logistics, transportation, healthcare, military, and supply chain management companies.

Among them, the end-use segment of transportation and logistics has substantially boosted the global RTLS market. This is because of the growing thrust on fleet management that necessitates the use of the technology. Concerns over security and privacy, however, have to some extent acted as a deterrent for the market. Having discussed such growth drivers and restraints, the report goes on to uncover a prevalent noticeable trend in the market – the wide take-up of the Ultra Wideband (UWB) RTLS technology.

To examine the global market in RTLS in the transportation and logistics sector carefully, the report segments it based on different parameters. Depending upon technology, for example, the report divides the market into barcodes and QR codes, RFID, Wi-Fi, and others.
