The market in the Americas is estimated to grow by USD 0.49 billion between 2016 and 2021. Highly organized industries and retail sectors are present in the US, and therefore, the market in the region is extremely concentrated. The US and Canada are the major hubs of large retail chains that have complex supply chains. These retail chain companies usually maintain huge inventories and utilize inventory tags for asset and product management across the entire value chain.
According to Anju Ajaykumar, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on tools and components, “In Latin America, the highest growth is expected from developing countries such as Brazil, Mexico, and Argentina. Most countries in Latin America are currently undergoing economic recession. This is because of the extremely low commodity prices, which is one of the most important trade resources for countries in the region. This led to the slow growth of industries and retail sectors till 2016. But, the commodity prices are expected to recover during the next five years. This should lead to an exponential economic and trade growth for these countries.”
Competitive vendor landscape
The global inventory tags market is highly fragmented as several large, medium, and small international, as well as regional players, are present in the market. Most players operating in the market are well-diversified companies that have several business units and product segments. The inventory tag business forms only a very small part of revenue for these companies. The barcode and QR-code based inventory tags are easily reproducible products, and therefore, the competition is particularly intense among these vendors. Several companies directly sell printers for such inventory tags so that the end-users can produce the required tags when they need them.
