2007 China RFID Industry Annual Awards



Jan 1, 1970
China's RFID market reached more than $500 million in 2007, growing
over 50 percent in comparison of previous year; the trend is expected
to continue for the next three years. According to IDTechEx, China has
become the world's largest market for RFID by value, thanks to huge
government spending on China's national ID card program and
investments for the Beijing 2008 Olympics. The release of regulations
for UHF 800/900 RFID; the first RFID company went to public; the
planning and establishment of RFID industrial parks in Dongguang,
Fushan, Shenyang, Shandong and other cities, all these signs forecasts
a brilliant perspective for RFID industry in China.

Dec 26, 2007, RFIDWorld China and RFID China Alliance launched a big,
non-profit RFID event - 2007 China RFID Industry Annual Awards - to
review and summarize the developments achieved in the past year and
