Increasing demand for hybrid RFID solutions, rising adoption RFID tags for IoT and smart manufacturing, and developing regions are creating opportunity for RFID solutions in market. However, high initial cost associated with installation of RFID systems and concers regarding data security and privacy are the major restraints of RFID market. Concerns related to data security and privacy are among the major issues faced by various industries. The threat of cyberattacks is one of the prime issues for every organization using RFID technology in the network system. Real-time location tracking systems are revolutionizing various industries where efficient resource utilization is critical. RFID provides the real-time location of individuals and offers the visibility required to keep people safe.

However, it has been observed that an RFID solution can be used to monitor specific employees and may lead to the loss of privacy due to personal monitoring. In the US, the amount of electronic data is doubling every three years, driven by the increased use of the Internet, smartphones, social networks, and the growth of machine-generated data, including data generated from RFID tags, sensors, and surveillance cameras. The personal medical and health data of the patient, which is protected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), can be disclosed through several sources such as credit card payments for regular physician visits to alternative medical practitioners. With the expansion of the digital world, public concern regarding privacy is increasing. Thus, data breaches resulting from the use of RFID are expected to restrain the market growth.
