RFID-EPC Changes Everything- Executive Summary and Section 2
Incucomm, Inc, October 2004, Pages: 122
"This Study provides the basis for undestanding the evolution of the RFID market. We define the RFID landscape and eliminate much of the semantic confusion that has been created to date. The report provides a detailed look at how the market will take shape between now and 2008 including detailed business cases, adoption drivers, revenue flows, likely consolidation opportunities, semiconductor issues, market share estimates, and value chain participants.
This includes an extensive Executive Summary (24pp.), Section II consisting of Chapters 4-6 as well as Appendices 1 and 2.
Section II focuses on market research, analysis, survey findings, and modeling."

Appendix 1 – RFID; what is it, and how does it work?
Appendix 2 – Acronym Glossary
As with many nascent markets, CPG RFID has many layers in its value chain with each layer being somewhat fragmented. In Section II (Chapters 4-6), this report seeks to to bridge these layers to determine if they can support the necessary business cases in order to make RFID a widespread reality. While other elements are modeled, close attention is paid to the silicon processing aspect of the value chain and the capability and strategic implications of reaching critical price points that support increased market adoption.
