This report summarises the status and forecasts from the Track & Trace Application Group found in the Transforma Insights Connected Things IoT forecast. The report provides a description of what is covered in the Application Group, as well as top-level figures from the forecast that provide detail on how many connected devices will be installed, the types of communication technology used and the total revenue opportunity.

The main drivers behind the adoption of Track & Trace solutions are the prevention of theft or loss, reduction of operational losses and recall incidents, and optimisation of product lifecycle management. Previously, the loss of items (such as reusable assets) was outweighed by the cost of asset tracking, but as IoT technology is becoming cheaper, and asset losses increase as businesses expand, the utilisation of tracking devices is becoming increasingly viable.

The application group is also witnessing a strong regulatory push for the monitoring of goods whilst in transit, particularly in the pharmaceutical and food industry. These regulations are an effort to reduce spoilage, contamination, and falsified items in these industries.
