Regional Insights

North America dominated the overall market in 2018 in terms of revenue share, followed by Europe. Growing penetration rate of RFID technologies due to availability of a well-developed healthcare infrastructure is one of the major factors responsible for the market growth in North America. The U.S. accounted for the largest share of North America in 2018 due to the high adoption due to affordability of hospitals, the local presence of players, and the presence of sophisticated hospitals.

Countries such as Germany and the UK dominated the European market in 2018 owing to the presence of large government-funded hospital programs. Germany is one of the lucrative regions due to government support for R&D funding and designing favorable regulations. For instance, the implementation of favorable regulations for cost-control of systems across various healthcare institutes is expected to drive the German RFID smart cabinet market. To determine quality value of medical products and services, Germany established Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care (IQWiG) in 2004. If the new device is innovative and useful for healthcare improvement, IQWiG applies fewer regulations for reimbursement than other countries.

Global RFID Smart Cabinets market share

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness the fastest growth rate over the forecast period from 2019 to 2026 due to the increasing awareness about RFID systems. In Asia Pacific, India is expected to grow at the fastest growth rate in the coming years. This is attributed to the implementation of supportive regulations and growing patient awareness. In 2005, India allowed usage of UHF RFID systems up to 4W of RFID power. This enabled Indian manufacturers to export their products due to the global quality standards.

In Latin America, Argentina is expected to grow at a rapid rate during the forecast period. This is due to proximity to growing investment by market players, growing adoption, free trade agreements in Latin America, and increasing healthcare expenditure. Growing awareness, increasing healthcare expenditure in developing countries, and rising adoption in middle- and low-income countries are some of the factors responsible to drive the market during the forecast period.
