According to supply chain news, shipments of RFID chips have increased sharply in the past two years, one of the reason is the rise of self-service stores.
At present, the development trend of self-service stores is quite rapid, and various semiconductor manufacturers are actively introducing related technologies. In addition, unmanned stores can reduce labor costs, traditional stores will gradually introduce RFID tag technology.
According to media reports, Amazon is planning and implementing large-scale self-service stores in the United States. In addition to living areas, Amazon also plans to open small self-service stores in airports and commercial areas; in the Chinese market, there are self-service stores opened by Alibaba. In addition, Carrefour also said that it will set up a self-service store in China, and at the same time, Wal-Mart has begun to implement self-service paying services. The self-service store market is gradually expanding.
In fact, as early as 2004, Wal-Mart proposed the idea of using RFID chips, which caused widespread concern in the retail industry. Now 14 years have passed, self-service stores are on the rise, and these new application scenarios will drive the global shipment of RFID chips.
