Whenever there is an unbilled item passing through the gates of the store, an alert is issued for the retailers through the electronic gate sensors. The market can be segmented on the basis of end-users, EAS components and EAS system type. The EAS system type includes magnetic systems,AM systems, radio frequency systems and microwave systems. Magnetic systems are made up of strip of amorphous metal and detection is achieved with the help of transmitter and receiver. The EAS components consist of electronic antenna, deactivator or detacher and electronic tag. Antenna has electronic circuit board system which sounds alarm when electronic tags passes by it. EAS systems are being used in apparel and fashion accessories stores, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, and supermarkets and large grocery stores. Employees having easy access to inventory store often steal retail goods. This segment reported for the highest retail shrinkage currently. Thereby, it is necessary to install EAS systems in these retail outlets.
