Mobile Barcode Usage Surveys

We often get asked if people are actually interested in this whole barcode scanning thing. Before we launched ScanLife in 2008, we wanted to know ourselves so we conducted a survey with over a 1,000 people. Results showed us that if we build it, they will come.

Three years later we now see millions of scans a month and over 20% of the Fortune 50 are using 2D codes in one way or another. But, people still want to know if the general public wants to use mobile barcodes. While we publish our quarterly Mobile Barcode Trend Report showing huge growth, we are thankful for other surveys which have been done recently to confirm these trends.

We wanted to keep a running list here of helpful reports on this topic. If you know of any others, please leave us a comment below, and we will add it to the official list.
