Report Description

EAS products include EAS systems and EAS tags. An EAS tag is a security product used by retailers to prevent shoplifting in retail stores or pilferage of books from libraries. EAS tags are fixed to merchandise or books and are removed or deactivated by staff when the item is bought or checked out. EAS tags help in preventing theft and shoplifting from stores, thus enhancing the operational efficiency and profit margin of retailers.

EAS systems employ EAS technology, which identifies anything that passes through the gated area in a store. This identification is used to alert staff about any unauthorized attempt to steal anything from a store. EAS system components usually consist of disposable tags, reusable tags, benefit denial tags, deactivators and detachers, and RFID tagging.

TechNavio’s analysts forecast the Global Electronic Article Surveillance Systems market will grow at a CAGR of 1.82 percent over the period 2013-2018.

Press Release

TechNavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report - Global Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) Systems Market 2014-2018

TechNavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in Global Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) Systems Market: Checkpoint Systems Inc., Tyco Retail Solutions, ALL-TAG Security Americas Inc., Ketec Inc., Nedap NV, Sentry Technology Corp., and TAG Co.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s team said: “Most retailers currently adopt a source tagging solution to reduce instances of theft and fraud. The EAS tags used in source tagging are applied at the manufacturing source and recirculated from the retail store. Recirculation helps reduce store payroll costs, improve sales, and ensure consistency in each operation of a store ? from store operations to merchandise displays. It not only helps reduce payroll hours at the store required to apply tags, but also increases the percentage of time spent on customer service”

According to the report, one of the major drivers in the market is an increase in incidences of shoplifting and employee theft mainly attributed to the global recession and high unemployment rates. This factor is expected to fuel the demand for retail security solutions such as EAS systems to safeguard products in retail stores.

Further, the report states that the growth of the Global EAS Systems market is hindered by some serious challenges. One of the major challenges in the market is the high implementation cost of EAS systems. EAS systems including EAS gates and tags use technologies such as RFID, electromagnetic, acousto-magnetic, and microwave, which require high upfront investment.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
