For instance, in February 2022, AIM, the industry alliance for automated data capture technologies such as RFID, barcode, NFC, IoT, and RTLS, announced its strategic goal to expand its influence among stakeholders in the AIDC marketplace. One of the primary goals of AIM's strategic plan is to give a new set of AIDC standards to members and the general public via a newly established "AIM Standards Marketplace."

Radiofrequency identification (RFID), barcodes, biometrics, labels, smart cards, and speech and voice recognition are examples of AIDC solutions. The solutions have gained acceptance across various industries due to their increased accuracy, precision, and smooth functioning. Factors such as the growing requirement to reduce manual data entry and capture errors, improvements in AIDC technology, and increased adoption of advanced AIDC systems are likely to drive market growth.

For instance, in July 2022, Cybra Corporation, a provider of barcoding, RFID tags, data gathering, wireless, and mobility technologies, and RMS Omega Technologies, an information technology firm, announced a collaboration. Through this collaboration, the companies intend to develop RFID-centered solutions for inventory tracking and asset management. The partnership will let users implement robust tracking solutions like real-time equipment location tracking, work-in-process operations, incoming and outbound shipment auditing, inventory threshold monitoring, and safety protocol enforcement.

Rising smartphone QR scanning and innovative low-cost solutions are expected to fuel market growth. In addition, factors such as rapidly growing e-commerce, retail, and consumer goods sectors are likely to drive the demand for AIDC products. Similarly, increased government efforts to promote AIDC products due to a surge in the incidence of human errors and incorrect data entry are expected to drive growth. Factors such as the growing requirement to reduce manual data entry and capture errors, improvements in AIDC technology, and increased adoption of advanced AIDC systems are likely to expand the market size.

Component Insights

In 2021, the hardware segment accounted for over 63% share of the global revenue. The maximum share of the segment can be attributed to the increasing demand for AIDC hardware devices such as scanners, RFID tags, magnetic stripe cards, barcoding solutions, optical character recognition (OCR) systems, smart cards, and biometric systems.

Furthermore, rising sales of these items are contributing to the expansion of the AIDC hardware industry. For instance, in May 2022, Datalogic S.p.A., a producer of bar code readers and portable data gathering terminals, introduced the Matrix 320 5MP industrial scanner. The new scanner, built on a multicore architecture with HDR capability and hardware acceleration, has a fantastic field of view for reading multiple tags or codes in a single capture with a single reader.

The software segment is estimated to grow significantly over the forecast period, owing to software companies focused on introducing unique features in data capture software. AIDC solution vendors are expanding their marketing capabilities to help their data capture software get market exposure for managing large amounts of incoming communication across the industries.

Data capture software is witnessing high demand from the banking sector to drive paperless transactions and enable digitally connected bankers to perform better during workloads and respond faster. For instance, in August 2022, Melissa Inc., a provider of data quality and address management systems, partnered with ID-Pal., a provider of identity verification services. The partnership created Melissa ID, a fully customizable, innovative software as a service solution that uses a multi-layered approach to automated identity verification that includes facial matching, biometrics, address verification, liveness testing, and document checks.

End-user Insights

The BFSI segment held the largest revenue share of over 18% in 2021. The highest share of the segment can be attributed to the increasing demand for smart cards in the banking sector. The transport and logistics segment is anticipated to be a potential end-user of the AIDC solutions. By incorporating AIDC technology for proper workflow and supply chain management, the industry has pushed the boundaries and redefined the nature of business.

For instance, in July 2021, Supply Chain Services LLC., an AIDC vendor, acquired ISG Technologies, LLC, a value-added reseller of AIDC products and services. Through this acquisition, the company is likely to increase its product portfolio and geographical reach into Texas. Furthermore, the AIDC industry will benefit from long-term tailwinds generated by the continuous emphasis on integrated supply chains and logistics and the proliferation of smart, connected devices.

The retail segment is predicted to foresee significant growth in the forecast years. The segment growth is attributed to the higher adoption of automatic identification & data capture technologies such as supply chain management, barcode & RFID tags for billing, and replenishment orders in the retail value chain. Furthermore, with increasing urbanization and demand for various consumer items, the retail business is witnessing substantial expansion in multiple nations worldwide, increasing the adoption of AIDC technology in this sector.

Manufacturers of AIDC systems are creating new, complementary technologies while continuously improving classic laser scanning capabilities to assist retail distribution centers in meeting these new identification problems and achieving the necessary process improvement goals.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market in 2021, accounting for nearly 40.0% share of the global revenue. This high share can be attributed to the increasing awareness and high adoption of AIDC devices and increased government legislative and investment, particularly in retail, healthcare, and manufacturing industries. Furthermore, the widespread acceptance of advanced technology and the technological development of numerous industries are driving the growth of the regional market.

For instance, in August 2022, OmniQ Inc., an IT firm that offers AI-based computer vision solutions, was awarded an extra USD 1 in a project for a supply chain of fortune 100 retailers with over 2300 locations in North America. The purchase order is for full technical assistance for the new technology deployed in the region's giant logistic facilities. This will speed up the deployment process by assuring precise configuration, robust reporting, and a concierge enterprise support team dedicated to the customer.
