RFID Inlays Market By Technology (Ultra High Frequency (UHF), High Frequency (HF), Near Field Communication (NFC)), By Type (Wet Inlays, Dry Inlays), By End-Use Industry (Apparel And Retail, Pharmaceutical And Healthcare, Transportation And Logistics, Industrial Manufacturing, Automotive, Personnel Identification) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2017 – 2025

RFID inlays are smart labels comprising a chip and antenna that are bonded to a polyethylene terephthalate (PET) layer. In the overall RFID system, the RFID inlays act as the component that stores information regarding the product or component to which they are attached. The RFID inlay manufacturers offer various types of inlays, ranging from dry inlays that can be incorporated into a label to wet inlays with adhesives that can be directly applied to a product as a sticker. Thereby, end-users can choose between wet and dry inlays as per their specific requirements.

The RFID inlays operate primarily in three frequencies: ultra-high frequency (UHF), high frequency (H.F.), and near-field communication (NFC). Each of these technologies has its particular benefits and is suitable for a varied array of applications. For instance, UHF inlays offer a longer read distance, making them apt for applications such as long-range tracking, inventory management, and logistics. The H.F. inlays offer a shorter read distance as compared to the UHF inlays and are suitable for applications where a smaller quantity of items are needed to be scanned and identified. The NFC inlays operate at the same frequency as the H.F. inlays; however, unlike H.F. inlays, NFC inlays can communicate with each other, resulting in peer-to-peer communication. Thereby, NFC inlays have found numerous innovative applications such as mobile payments, interactive advertising, and promotions. The deployment of RFID inlays has offered immense benefits for end-use industries, including apparel and retail; pharmaceutical and healthcare; transportation and logistics; industrial manufacturing; automotive; personnel identification; and others (cosmetics, jewelry, library, media, documents, files, etc.).
