Some economically developed countries have successively established the National Association of Article Numbering and Automatic Identification Manufacturers Association, which has effectively promoted the rapid development of automatic barcode identification technology.
In the United States and Canada, as of 1996, there were 176,000 members of the barcode system, and the average annual growth rate was 12.10%. The bar code automated scanning shop (POS) covered all wholesale and retail companies, and the electronic data exchange (EANCOM) users in circulation reached nearly 10,000. Family. In the United Kingdom, by the end of 1996, there were 13,030 members in the bar code system, with an average annual growth rate of 8.76%, 27,000 POS stores, and 600 EANCOM users. At the end of 1996, the number of members in the bar code system in France reached 21,292. The average annual growth rate was 16.99%. Wholesale and retail stores all realized POS, and 5,000 EANCOM users. At the end of 1996, the number of barcode system members in Germany reached 72,929. The average annual growth rate was 30.8%, there were 18,000 POS stores, 72929 assigned location codes and 1,000 EANCOM users. At the end of 1996, the number of members of the barcode system in Japan reached 78,600. The average annual growth rate was 6.84%, and there were 234,000 POS shops.
The bar code identifies the product coverage rate. In economically developed countries, products that should be bar coded are basically covered. Commercial POS, commodity logistics centers, commodity distribution centers, large-scale commercial cities, chain stores, and home stores are all basically POS-enabled, and automatic identification technology and equipment have formed an independent industry. At present, countries in the world, especially the economically developed countries, are focusing on the development of bar code technology in areas such as automation of production, modernization of transportation, internationalization of financial trade, high efficiency of medical and health care, popularization of ticketed gold cards, and secrecy of security and anti-counterfeiting. In addition to the implementation of the 13-digit commodity identification code, the company also promotes the application of 128 units of trade units, ENA location codes, barcode application identification, and 2D barcodes.
Some countries or countries in the international arena have been in commercial wholesale, retail and distribution, industrial manufacturing, financial services, government administration, construction and real estate, health care, education and training, media publishing and information services, transportation, tourism and Promotional applications such as entertainment services have achieved very clear results. Due to the development of bar code technology to depth and breadth, it has promoted the development of bar code automatic identification technology equipment to the direction of multi-function, long-distance, miniaturization, simultaneous software and hardware, accurate identification, rapid information transfer, safety, reliability, and economic adaptability. Many new technical equipments. According to incomplete statistics from the International Association of Automatic Identification Manufacturers, annual sales of global bar code automatic identification technology and equipment have reached more than 20 billion U.S. dollars.
