The market research report from Technavio presents a detailed segmentation of the global automatic data capture market by products (rugged mobile computers, barcode printers, handheld scanners, self-checkout solutions, and POS retail scanners), by end users (retail, transportation and logistics, manufacturing, commercial services, and healthcare), and by geography (APAC, EMEA, and the Americas). The leading vendors in this market are Datalogic SpA, Honeywell International, and Zebra Technologies.

Technavio’s market research analysts estimate the global ADC market to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% between 2015 and 2019. Automatic data capture (ADC) involves the use of barcode scanners, magnetic stripe readers, optical character recognition, radio frequency identification, and speech recognition to capture data automatically. The ability of ADC to automatically collect and enter data into a computer system is a major factor that helps enterprises to reduce manual work and to reduce errors during data entry. The Americas dominate the global market for ADC, accounting for around 49% of the overall market revenue. Early adoption of ADC in this region is a major factor that propels market growth in this region

The new market research report from Technavio provides a breakdown and analysis of the automatic data capture segments by technology.

“The introduction of ADCs is helping organizations to automate data entry and also improve warehouse errors such as picking up the wrong quantity of items or a different order. The ADC devices gather data digitally in the form of serial numbers, prices, item count, hence is preferred in industries like manufacturing, logistics, and warehouses. The overall data entry has become very easy due to ADC devices, which have gained huge prominence in the healthcare sector, says Navin Rajendra, Lead Analyst, ICT, Technavio Research.

The rugged mobile computers are the largest end-users of ADC devices, accounting for 38% of the overall market share. Advantages like its strong build quality, water or dust resistance, shock or vibration resistance, and high reliability are responsible for this segment’s dominance during the forecast period.

The leading vendors in the global automatic data capture market include Datalogic SpA, Honeywell International, and Zebra Technologies. The market is dominated by a few large vendors like Zebra technologies and Honeywell. In the handheld scanners segment, Zebra Technologies and Honeywell are expected to be the dominating vendors, whereas in the POS retail scanners segment Datalogic is expected to be the leading vendor during the forecast period.
