The barcode equipment market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.03% to reach US$11.732 billion by 2026, from US$7.291 billion in 2019.

Barcode is essentially a method used to portray data in a visual, machine-readable form. The data is represented by using widths and spacing of parallel lines. These barcodes are available in one-dimensional and two-dimensional forms. The two-dimensional barcodes can be read using a mobile phone with an inbuilt camera. These bars represent binary digits 0 and 1. Once scanned, the device stores or immediately processes the data. Barcode equipment is of various types, including, barcode scanners, barcode printers, and barcode verifiers.

A major reason for the growth of this market is the rise in the application of barcodes in different sectors.

The worldwide barcode scanner market has been completely transformed over a few decades. A number of sectors such as transportation, Healthcare, logistics, and retail are increasingly adopting the use of barcodes. In the retail sector, barcode helps in quickly identifying the products. In other words, these barcodes are extensively used in the retail sector as a part of the purchasing process. In the healthcare industry, barcodes are widely used to track patient medication and recognize them throughout their entire stay. In the transportation sector, the barcode helps customers to buy tickets in an efficient manner, thereby promoting the use of no paper tickets. In the logistics sector, barcodes are essentially used in the purchase and return process. With such wide acceptance, the global Barcode Equipment market is expected to witness growth.
