Barcode versus QR Code, RFID, and NFC: Which is better?
The RFID, BLE, NFC and GPS technologies are acquiring prominence in retail activities. This is explains why the global barcode readers market is estimated to register a modest CAGR of ~4% during the forecast period. On the other hand, QR (Quick Response) code scanning is possible with the help of smartphones to encode versatile data such as numeric and binary data. In order to address this stiff competition, companies in the barcode readers market are focusing more on software integration in devices so that scanning is possible using any smart device.
The RFID automatically collects data by reducing human error, while BLE is cost-efficient as compared to RFID. However, barcode is a universal technology, which will take several years to become obsolete.
