The Role of Washable RFID Tags in the Recovery of the Fashion and Retail Industry
Washable RFID tags are becoming increasingly popular for a wide range of applications, especially in the textile and apparel industry. In the last three years, the global fashion and retail industry has been significantly impacted by the pandemic. The world economy is expected to recover from 2023 onwards. Throughout this challenging period, RFID technology played an important role for big retail brands from production, logistics, warehouse management, and retail checkout with flexible thin RFID tags which are so fragile and weakened after the end customer wears and washing. Moreover, UHF RFID tags can only be read by industrial read devices, more and more high-end retail and fashion brands yearn for interaction with end customers to enhance brand loyalty.
To overcome this issue, high-end retail and fashion brands are incorporating NFC technology to enhance brand loyalty and interaction with end customers. NFC tags assembled in fashion products can easily connect brands and customers via NFC-enabled mobile phones. This provides a shortcut for brands to reach out to clients and promote their products. NFC technology breaks through the boundaries between brands and end customers and is expected to contribute to the resurgence of the fashion and retail industries.
