The global market for radio frequency identification (RFID) systems, including tags, in postal & courier sector will be worth USD 2.5 billion by 2018, with a potential to be much bigger in case current efforts to tag individual items gain widespread acceptance. In due course, more than one trillion postal items will be tagged every year, making this the world’s second largest application of RFID after the retail supply chain. Postal services ignoring this accelerating change will become uncompetitive and suppliers missing out are sure to regret it.
