Real-Time Location System (RTLS) is a type of location tracking system that tracks and monitors the location of objects in real-time. The RTLS system uses RFID tags and readers to locate and track assets and people. Tags (generally active RFID tags) are powered by batteries to send RF signals regarding the location of an object or person. Readers, which can send and or receive signals, read the data and transfers to the backup system, which is generally a server. Generally, tags send signals for every two to five seconds depending on their capacity, to track the precise location of objects and personnel in real-time. The real-time location system technology has a wide range of applications in various industry verticals such as healthcare, transportation and logistics, industrial manufacturing, process industries, retail, and others due to the increasing focus on resource utilization and enhancing workflow efficiency.

The RTLS market players have been focusing on the innovations in terms of technological advancements to cater to the specific needs of enterprises in tracking and monitoring the precise location of assets or personnel. UWB and ZigBee based RTLS technologies have been the emerging technologies in the RTLS market, which provide high accuracy and precise location of objects in shorter locations compared to any other RTLS technology. The market for these technologies is expected to grow at a higher CAGR in the forecast period than others because of the increasing adoption of the RTLS solutions based on these technologies. Furthermore, these technologies have been able to overcome the difficulties faced by the other technologies in tracking objects in harder mediums such as concrete wall or other substances. However, Wi-Fi and RFID technologies are expected to account for a major market share during the forecast period, due to their lesser cost compared to UWB and ZigBee technologies.

The Americas and Europe were the largest markets for the RTLS technology in 2014. Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing region, followed by RoW which is also among the major regions that plays a significant role in the growth of the RTLS market. The growth of the RTLS market in the Americas was largely driven by the U.S., which accounted for 74.7% of the total Americas RTLS market in 2014. The Asia-Pacific market for RTLS is expected to be driven by its key markets such as Japan, Australia, China, Malaysia, and Singapore. The industrial manufacturing and retail sector along with, transportation and logistics is likely to provide a huge growth opportunity for RTLS solutions in these regions. The market would also be fuelled by the increase in focus of the major global RTLS vendors to expand their product and service offerings in the Asia-Pacific region as this region is expected to witness a higher growth in terms of the adoption of RTLS solutions and market value.
