China’s RFID card market to nearly double to USD 807 million in 2017
March 13, 2013 // Julien Happich
Driven by the government's focus on the futuristic Internet of Things and a surge in private sector growth, China’s RFID card market will nearly double in value and more than double in units in 2017, says Lux Research.
The RFID card/tag market volume will grow to 2.11 billion units, from 894 million in 2012, reflecting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19%. In revenue terms, the market will grow to USD807 million in 2017, from USD454 million in 2012, at a CAGR of 12%.
“So far, government applications account for 22% of the volume and 34% of the revenue, but that is about to change quickly,” said Richard Jun Li, Lux Research Director and the lead author of the report titled, “Identifying Growth and Threat in China’s Emerging RFID Ecosystem.”
“With the rise of market-driven applications, there are opportunities for multinationals to leverage China’s RFID growth – speed and identification of the best local partnerships will be critical,” he added. Lux Research analysts studied the Chinese RFID market and government policy to evaluate growth prospects for the industry. Among their findings:
Consumer market is the strongest
Driven mainly by the adoption of RFID tags for anti-counterfeiting, consumer applications will grow the fastest in volume terms – at a CAGR of 38% until 2017. Industrial applications will grow at a 25% rate, while electronic toll collection will be a fast-growing subsector.
Local OEM players emerging
The rise of Chinese original equipment manufacturer (OEM) suppliers for RFID cards/tags is creating a new industry dynamic. Currently, the top 15 suppliers – led by China Card Group and Tatwah Smartech – account for 57% of the Chinese market and are poised for further gains.
Focus is on fast-growing UHF market
Chinese companies do not have as strong a position in superior ultra-high frequency (UHF) chips – which will grow dramatically to become a USD236 million market in 2017. However, the clock is ticking for multinational suppliers, as the Chinese government is putting significant resources into developing homemade UHF chips.

Internet of Things (IoT) manufacturer Ciseco has launched the Raspberry Pi ‘Wireless Inventors Kit’ (RasWIK), featuring 88 pieces to provide everything a Pi owner needs to follow a series of step-by-step projects or to create their own wireless devices, without the need for configuration or even writing code.
RasWIK has been designed to be highly accessible, demystifying the dark art of wireless and enabling anyone with basic computing skills to begin building wireless devices with a Raspberry Pi. You can create anything from a simple traffic light, to a battery monitor, or even a temperature gauge that sends data to the Xively IoT cloud so billions can access the data.This month, Ciseco is giving away twelve Raspberry Pi Wireless Inventors kits, worth £49.99 each for EETimes Europe's readers to win.
And the winners are...
In our previous reader offer, Farsens was giving away five kits for EEtimes Europe readers to evaluate its FenixVortex, Kineo and X1 wireless, battery free sensor tags.
Lucky winners include Mr A. Neil from the UK, Mr. E. Delvaux from Belgium, Mr Lengal from the Czech Republic, Mr H. Bijlsma from the Netherlands, and Mr G. Pfaff from Germany. All should be receiving their packages soon. Lets wish them some interesting findings with their projects.
