The raw material of RFID labels like RFID chips, PVC, and paper continue to soar due to COVID-19 in 2020. Especially after the announcement of NXP semiconductors letter to mention raising prices. Due to rfid label cost inflation, Many rfid label factories in China issued a formal letter to raising rfid label price.  

The global chip supply shortage might interrupt automobile production in China but also affect other industries. Since November, rfid label factories in China happened to face a shortage supply of chips yet. This situation is going worse like Higgs3, Monza R6P, which was mass-produced for logistic and supply chain management.
