Barcode Readers Market: Introduction

The global barcode readers market is projected to reach value of US$ 10.1 Bn by 2030. The barcode readers market is projected to expand at a CAGR of ~4% from 2020 to 2030. The expansion of the barcode readers market can be attributed to growing usage of barcode readers across the healthcare sector, and increasing demand for handheld barcode readers. North America is anticipated to lead the global barcode readers market in terms of revenue, followed by Europe, during the forecast period.   

Growing e-Commerce an Opportunity for Market

Growth in the e-Commerce sector and rapid distribution of goods in order to gain competitive benefits have led to huge demand for barcode readers/scanners. This, in turn, provides significant opportunities for key vendors in the barcode readers market to develop digital solutions to enhance traditional processes.

  • For instance, in December 2019, Datalogic S.p.A launched its new 2D image-based barcode reader "AV500," specifically for end users such as retail and healthcare. The technology integrates image processing and vision systems that enable shoppers to easily and quickly execute transactions. It has been especially designed for retail & e-Commerce, airport baggage handling, and postal/parcel sortation.

Additionally, as a substitute to in-house fulfillment, a large number of retail enterprises has shifted to 3PLs from internet order processing to handle these online requirements. This is expected to propel the usage of barcode readers in the logistics industry, as real time tracking and tracing is expected to become the new normal.
