Real Time Location System (RTLS) Market

Real Time Location System Market - Global Industry Analysis 2015 - 2019 and Opportunity Assessment; 2020 - 2030

Market Overview

A real-time location system (RTLS) is a technology which is capable of detecting and tracking the geolocation of any objects in real time. The target information is generally collected over wireless system. RLTS is sometime perceived similar to RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) but both differ in scope and technology. The core of RLTS is the real time data and to identify the target automatically.

 RLTS Market Overview

RLTS global market is expected to acquire a distinct prominence owing to rise in security concern and asset tracking. Surge in workplace accidents and to monitor assets can be attributed for its sustained growth.

RLTS market is primarily driven by its growing demand in healthcare sector. RLTS can be programmed to send highly accurate data in real time if used with combination of advanced application and software, which has been proved lifesaving in certain scenario like fire evacuation or a natural calamity like earthquake.

Real Time Location System: The Need of the Hour

The current state of pandemic caused by COVID-19 is grave and the panic it has unleashed globally is beyond imagination. RLTS technology can be fully leveraged in this situation, especially in quarantine centre and to track the real time location of patients and staffs.

The education sector which is considered as the future of a country is going through extreme crisis. RLTS with combination of RFID can be implemented at large scale to alert the responsible person to keep a check on social distancing. Successful implementation and deployment of such technology can also make ourselves prepared for future pandemic.
