Recent plant automation trends have boosted the demand for RFID in the manufacturing sector, particularly in automotive and aerospace manufacturing which focuses on process efficiency.Loss/theft of assets, misplaced tools, and uncoordinated inventory management disrupt production in a plant and cause monetary losses.

RFID helps track assets, tools, and work-in-progress. The advent of Industry 4.0 and the ongoing digitalization will increase the uptake of RFID in the manufacturing industry. With rising digitization and omnichannel business models, customers are always on the lookout for technologies that help them track assets, maintain product availability, and strengthen brand image. RFID technology improves inventory management, loss prevention, and retail analytics. RFID ensures end-to-end visibility through source tagging and enhances business process efficiency.
