RFID End-User Survey Indicates Nearly Half to Increase Budgets in 2010

Every year, ABI Research conducts a comprehensive survey of companies currently using, deploying or piloting/evaluating RFID. This year more than 115 qualified organizations from across the world responded to ABI Research's annual RFID end-user survey.

Nearly half (49 percent) of those respondents report that they expect their RFID budgets to increase in 2010. "ABI Research considers this a welcome result in these difficult economic conditions," says practice director Michael Liard. "Moreover, 100 percent of those organizations with roll-outs currently in progress intend to increase their RFID budgets next year."

The picture is fairly rosy in other parts of the market too: nearly another one third of respondents report that their 2009 RFID spending levels will remain unchanged in 2010, while only about 11 percent  intend to cut their RFID budgets.

As in past years, the overwhelming majority of respondents rated "business process improvement" as the number one driver for their adoption of RFID. The second-most important driver was considered to be the need to reduce non-labor costs.
