Research and Markets: Global Real Time Location System (RTLS) Market 2014-2018 with AeroScout, Ekahau, HP & Samsung Dominating

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/r9xjwt/global_real_time) has announced the addition of the "Global Real Time Location System (RTLS) Market 2014-2018 with AeroScout, Ekahau, HP, Samsung Dominating" report to their offering.

One of the main drivers in the real time location system market is the increasing adoption of RTLS in the Healthcare industry. Most healthcare organizations use RTLS solutions for asset management and locating equipment such as hospital beds, wheelchairs, ventilators, oxygen cylinders, and infusion pumps. They also use RTLS solutions for employee monitoring, through which they can organize the hospital management system.

The vendor landscape of the Global RTLS market has changed significantly over the last few years. This is because of the growing number of acquisitions among the top vendors and strategic alliances among the vendors to offer innovative solutions. RTLS vendors are collaborating with each other to standardize the RTLS architecture and provide benefits to both vendors and endusers. Various RTLS vendors are looking to improve the compatibility and efficiency of RTLS technology.

Thus, RTLS vendors are developing strategic alliances with large corporations that are specialized in RFID technologies, which is likely to aid RTLS vendors in achieving higher standards. For instance, HP and Ekahua entered into a partnership for deploying RTLS solutions across 150 networked hospitals across the US. In addition, the market is rapidly evolving where there are fewer large players. Hence, many IT companies are acquiring small and medium-sized players to enter into the market. For instance, leading printing solution provider, Zebra Technology, has acquired leading RTLS solution provider, WhereNet Corp., to enhance its RTLS product portfolio.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in the market is the lack of awareness about RTLS technology among enterprises, especially SMEs, which account for a major share of the market. Most enterprises know about other tracking and monitoring technologies, but are unaware of RTLS and its benefits; therefore, they are reluctant to adopt RTLS.

The key vendors dominating this market space are:

  • Stanley Healthcare Solutions (AeroScout Inc.)
  • Ekahau (News - Alert), Inc.
  • Hewlett-Packard Enterprise Services LLC.
  • Samsung Network Inc. (Samsung SDC Co. Ltd.)
  • Ubisense Group plc.
