For instance, Walmart stated in its annual report that high inventory shrinkage was one of the reasons for reduced profits in FY2017. In the same year, Target reported in its annual publishing that retail shrinkage has led to inventory loss. Such factors are encouraging retailers to adopt electronic article surveillance systems, which will boost the growth of the overall global market.

In this report, Technavio highlights the adoption of source tagging in the retail sector as one of the key emerging trends in the global EAS systems market:

Global electronic article surveillance systems market: adoption of source tagging in the retail sector

Source tagging is the tagging of a product package or a product with EAS tags at the time of manufacturing. It eliminates the need for staff to apply tags on each product, thus saving time. This provides ample time for the store staff to focus on other work. Source tagging is an effective way of regulating the supply chain. Apart from reduced labor costs, it also reduces tagging costs as the tags can be recycled and reused multiple times. Source tagging not only reduces the cost structure for retailers but also minimizes losses due to in-house theft. Moreover, retailers are seen partnering with EAS tag suppliers and logistics companies to reuse and recirculate apparel tags directly at the time of manufacturing. Thus, with such an implementation, the market is expected to show a positive outlook during the forecast period.

“Apart from the adoption of source tagging, the increased spending on security systems and inclusion of data analytics in EAS systems are two major factors that are expected to boost the growth of the global market in the next few years,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on IT security.
