Increasing adoption of 2D barcodes has been one of the primary drivers for the growth of the Global Automatic Data Capture Market as pre the latest research findings by the analysts from TechNavio. As per analysis, the market will be growing at a CAGR of 12.29 percent during the forecast period 2012-2016.
However, the high initial investment needed to implement 2D barcode scanners and RFID devices is a major challenge faced by the market globally. 2D barcodes scanners are expensive when compared with its 1D counterpart. SMEs are also finding it difficult to install RFID in business operations because of its high cost.
Despite the presence of certain challenges, the Global Automatic Data Capture Market is showing immense potential and expected to grow over the forecast period because of certain positive trends emerging in the market, like increasing demand for 2D barcode scanners.
“With this market being divided into two segments: the Barcode Scanning segment and the RFID segment, it is expected there will be increasing application of automatic data capture equipment in various industries such as: warehousing and storage, retail, healthcare, transportation and logistics, hospitality and entertainment, livestock, and others.
