Some sectors of RFID have grown despite the recession. Other sectors have followed the classic hype cycle curve, but are now in the path of growth and profitability for the suppliers concerned. For the first time in many years, companies in Europe and the US are adding new manufacture volume. In Asia the huge Government support is driving manufacture and demand. The industry is taking off in many ways and in many forms. For example, Wireless Sensor Networks, a form of Active RFID, are being deployed in public buildings to save energy and monitor infrastructure. In 2011, RFID enabled cellphones are appearing from Nokia, Google and many others and the first printed RFID tags are being shipped.
