Newark, NJ, Feb. 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As per the report published by Fior Markets, the global real-time locating system market is expected to grow from USD 4.12 billion in 2018 to USD 23.8 billion by 2026 at a CAGR of 24.5% during the forecast period from 2018-2026. The real-time locating system market has been witnessing rapid growth from the past few years. Companies in a variety of industries—from agriculture to healthcare and transportation to manufacturing—use location as the input to a number of critical business processes.

A real-time location system (RTLS) is used to identify and detect the geographical position of people and objects in real-time. It comprises a wireless tag that is attached to objects or individuals and the signals conveyed from this tag are analyzed with respect to a fixed point of reference, which helps to provide the precise location of the individual or the object. The system consists of battery-powered tags, location readers, sensors, application software, and network infrastructure. Real-time locating systems provide easy identification and tracking of assets which include tools, containers, medical equipment, and trailers.

The global real-time locating system market is expected to witness rapid growth over the forecast period, owing to supportive government policies for the promotion of real-time locating solutions. However, issues related to privacy and data security may obstruct the growth of the market, over the forecast period. Nevertheless, adoption of hybrid RTLS solution is anticipated to offer future growth opportunities in the market.


Key players operating in the global real-time locating system market are Axcess International, Inc., SAVI Technology, Sonitor Technologies AS, Stanley Healthcare Solutions (AeroScout, Inc.), Zebra Technologies Corp., Versus Technology, Inc., TeleTracking Technologies, Inc., Awarepoint Corp., DecaWave Limited, and Ubisense Group PLC among others. To enhance their market position in the global Real-time locating system market, the key players are now focusing on adopting the strategies such as product innovation, recent developments, mergers & acquisitions, joint venture, collaborations, and partnership.

  • For instance, in October 2017, Smartbow GmbH and Nanotron Technologies GmbH announced that they are entering into an exclusive supply agreement for nanoLOC location chips. The product delivered by nanotron is used in both the Smartbow ear tag and the nanotron-provided receiver.
  • In August 2016, STANLEY Healthcare and InterSystems, a global leader in health information technology, announced the partnership to enable new Internet of things (IoT) applications in healthcare. InterSystems interoperability platform supports key integrations for STANLEY Healthcare’s Healthcare’s AeroScout Real-Time Location System (RTLS) platform for patient flow and staff workflow solutions.
