    COVID-19 Impact on the Global RFID Locks

    Social and physical distancing and other restrictions will be part of our lives and affect our behavior for the foreseeable future. Post COVID-19, enterprises, governments, and consumers are expected to focus on keeping workplaces safe and clean. There is a long list of action items required that include regular decontamination of offices and factories, wearing masks, social distancing, mandatory compliance with corporate apps that track employee health and movement. The COVID-19 outbreak has significantly impacted the global RFID locks market. The production facilities of the RFID locks have been slow down, and unavailability of the workforce across the globe. COVID-19 outbreak has triggered a significant and protracted drop in manufacturing, utilization, and the travel bans & facility closures kept workers out of their workshops, which may lead to a slowdown in the growth of the RFID locks market 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted the automotive, manufacturing, and transportation & logistics industry globally. Demand for locks products has been affected globally, owing to lockdowns across different countries. COVID-19 has also disrupted the global supply chain of major electronic brands. China is the biggest producer and exporter of various products widely used for automotive, manufacturing, hospitality, and others. The ongoing production halt has forced the other locks manufacturers to hold the manufacture of the finished goods on a momentary basis, which leads to the gap in the demand and supply of the products.

    Global RFID Locks Market Dynamics

    Drivers: Rapid urbanization and industrialization

    The most common use of RFID locks is in the access control system as door entry systems for personnel. RFID-enabled tags are generally employed on a very basic level to identify badges for workers and provide a simple solution for companies or any industry that uses access control systems. The RFID applications for personnel identification usually operate at quite a low frequency, almost 140 kHz, for badge detection. The cardholder, object, or reader information is electronically stored in the RFID cards, which can contain only small pieces of information such as identification numbers, prices, or codes.

    In addition, RFID technology is popularly employed in access control systems to allow authenticated and authorized personnel to enter secure spaces. RFID is a favored choice for several uses aside from office management, such as supply chain inventory, parking garage gate control, and retail checkout lines. The rise in demand for access control systems with NFC technology is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the RFID locks market.

    Restraints: Unaffordable prices of security solutions

    The high cost of the RFID lock system is expected to restrain its adoption in the coming year. In addition, the maintenance and troubleshooting of lock systems are time-consuming and expensive, which turn-in is expected to hamper the adoption of RFID locks globally, particularly in cash-strapped businesses across low-income nations. In addition, the high cost for safety & security solutions is restricting the potential customer base in Asia-Pacific; thus, hampering the RFID locks market growth.

    Opportunities: High development of smart home

    Rise in adoption of smart home architecture across the globe that includes features, such as remote access, voice control, and seamless connectivity, which boosts the adoption of RFID locks for the residential sector. RFID locks enable advanced security features that have become increasingly popular, owing to some factors such as an increase in safety & security concerns across various end-users, including hospitality, government & educational institutions, residential premises, and several corporate buildings. These factors would create lucrative opportunities for the RFID locks market. An RFID lock offers both security and flexibility, providing keyless access to the home that can be controlled via smartphones, wearables, and keycards. As the number of connected smart home applications continues to grow, the smart RFID locks provide users with both convenience and security, which enable them to manage their homes in a wide range of scenarios. The rise in the development of smart home concepts across the globe creates lucrative opportunities for the RFID locks market.
