Yet others say the industry is growing even faster than earlier predictions. How big is the market today and what's the outlook for the next five years?

The number of RFID startups has grown significantly in the last couple of years, making it difficult to pick potential winners from losers.

What are the most promising opportunities and niches in the overall market?
