Real-Time Location Systems Market Size, Trends & Growth (2021 - 2026)

Real-time positioning system (RTLS) solutions are used to track the location of a target in real-time. RTLS is different from Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), although they are generally considered to be the same solutions. RFID uses the transmission of signals between two or more devices to locate the target. RTLS, then again, consequently distinguishes the objective and tracks its area progressively. Moreover, RTLS can follow target development when upheld by a PC application.

The market for real-time location frameworks is in a two-fold digit development stage. Most arising innovations experience this when they truly begin to take off. This phase is characterized by an aggressive proliferation of new competitors and innovation and is sometimes accompanied by strong consolidation. The requirement for solid and exact asset tracking and area information at the correct time for the perfect individuals is quickening the development of this market.

Recent Developments:

  • Attendees of the Health Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS13) annual conference will have multiple opportunities to learn how Real-Time Tracking System (RTLS) technology positively impacts efficiency and safety in healthcare facilities, as well as the new wireless RTLS technology.

· Zebra Technologies Corporation declared Zebra MotionWorks Warehouse, another area arrangement that modernizes stockroom activities by following resources, robotizing exchanges, improving worker efficiency, and lessening transporting mistakes.

  • Silicon Labs (NASDAQ: SLAB), a main supplier of silicon, programming, and solutions for a more brilliant and more associated world, today reported the fulfillment of the securing of the Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® business of Redpine Signals, a center point of creating in Hyderabad, India, and a broad patent portfolio for $ 308 million in real money.
  • STANLEY Healthcare, a leading provider of visibility and analytics solutions for the healthcare industry, and InterSystems, a global leader in healthcare information technology, today announced the next step in the strategic integration of their partnership to enable new applications like Internet of Things (IoT) and healthcare.

Drivers and Restraints of Real-Time Location Systems Market:


The growing need for asset tracking, the proliferation of smartphones, the rapid adoption of business analytics solutions, as well as an increased awareness of the benefits of the real-time tracking system is the main factors driving the growth of the systems market for real-time tracking. However, operational challenges and high upfront costs are expected to hamper the growth of the Real-time Tracking Systems market. Rather, technological advancements and the combination of technologies from key vendors to deliver efficient RTLS applications are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for market growth during the forecast period.


The lack of real interoperability between different systems is one of the main concerns of user industries. RTLS suppliers seem, by all accounts, to be tending to this test by adding adaptability to their item contributions and offering open stage arrangements that advance interoperability with guides and other business frameworks.

Real-Time Location Systems Market Segmentation:

By Component

  • Hardware
  • Software
  • Service

On a component basis, the hardware segment dominated the overall market for real-time tracking systems in 2018 and is expected to maintain its dominant position over the forecast period. This is attributed to the abundant availability of sensors at affordable prices, the growing awareness of the benefits of RTLS technology, the increasing adoption of Wi-Fi in various end-user sectors, the widening of the implementation of existing RTLS in industries, which mainly stimulates growth in real-time market monitoring of systems solutions.

Right now, hospitals are facing unprecedented challenges with the ongoing pandemic. Some of the other serious problems facing the health sector are an aging population and a shortage of personnel, which puts enormous pressure on institutions, doctors, workers, patients, and communities. Many are looking for ways to cut costs, improve efficiency, and provide the quality of care their patients need. The global shortage of healthcare workers could reach more than 14 million by 2030, according to the WHO, as doctors face an increasing workload. As a result, there is an increased demand for services and support that can reorganize existing resources and methods. Therefore, medical services supervisory groups are looking to real-time location systems (RTLS) to defeat a portion of their difficulties. Likewise, the developing pattern of associated wearable gadgets is further driving business sector development.

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of good hand hygiene practices globally, but enforcing compliance in hospitals can also protect patients from other infections. RTLS systems can be used to verify that doctors and nurses always wash their hands between treatment of multiple patients, reducing the transfer of infections that are particularly dangerous for patients whose immune systems may already be weakened from their original state. However, high initial installation and maintenance costs hamper the growth of this market during the forecast period.
