Keywords:Wi-Fi RFID tags? wireless market? asset tag?

Market research firm In-Stat reported there were 135,000 shipments of Wi-Fi RFID tags in 2006 and the market is set to double each year until 2010. This would result to more than 2.1 million units in three years.

According to In-Stat, shipments under the AeroScout brand accounted for the majority of Wi-Fi RFID tags shipped in 2006 and the key application areas for growth are health care, heavy manufacturing, transportation and logistics.

"Historically, one of the key weaknesses of this market has been the short battery life of asset tags," said In-Stat analyst Daryl Schoolar in a statement. "G2 MicroSystems, the only tag-specific chip vendor, has made strides in overcoming this weakness, with multiyear battery life now a reality."
