INTRODUCTION

Wireless sensor devices connect sensors wirelessly among each other as well as to monitoring and management setups. While the sensing principles are consistent with that of wireline sensors, wireless sensors have the challenge of operating with an attractive form and with robust power management.

The payout is spectacular. In most cases, wireless sensors beat their wireline counterparts hands down in the following aspects:

Physical reachTime to roll out and installPricingSuitability in harsh operating environments

Wireless sensor devices are the actual sensing elements that are present in the wireless sensor networks. They do not include gateways or management software.

This report deals exclusively with wireless technologies employed in the personal area network (PAN) and local area network (LAN) topologies. It does not cover wide area networks (e.g., commercial cellular networks).

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

This study’s goals and objectives include the following:

Forecast the market size for wireless sensor devices used in PANs and LANs in terms of dollar and unit sales.

Classify the market size for wireless sensor devices used in PANs and LANs by various parameters measured in terms of dollar and unit sales.

Classify the market size for wireless sensor devices used in PANs and LANs by end application in terms of dollar and unit sales.

Classify the market size for wireless sensor devices used in PANs and LANs by geographical regions in terms of dollar and unit sales.

Classify the market size for wireless sensor devices used in PANs and LANs by wireless and standard technologies in terms of dollar and unit sales.

Identify the market size for wireless sensor devices used in PANs and LANs in key country markets in terms of dollar and unit sales.

Analyze the challenges posed by technology issues (e.g., power management) and the steps taken by industry stakeholders to counter these challenges.

Analyze the challenges posed by business issues (e.g., multiplicity of wireless standards and technologies) and the steps taken by industry stakeholders to counter these challenges.

Highlight the roles played by major stakeholders and players.

Provide an overview of the activities of influential companies.

Examine crucial, innovative breakthroughs by means of a detailed patent analysis.

However, the fit into this grand scheme is only an aside to the wireless sensor story. The main theme here is the phenomenal amount of use cases that can be engendered by the technology. These include the wireless enablement of existing wireline sensors as well as the spawning of new use cases altogether.

Everything is, however, not all positive. The technology faces compelling technical and business challenges that need to be overcome before it can realize its potential. This report is an effort towards forecasting the market size for wireless sensor devices in the face of these challenges.

The Executive Summary chapter provides an end application, domain-wise breakdown of the dollar sales of wireless sensor devices. The Overview chapter deals with the fundamentals of sensors and introduces the various measurable parameters. It also covers the major technology and business challenges confronting the wireless sensor domain and introduces the reader to the concepts of energy harvesting. The chapter familiarizes the reader with the leading wireless PAN and LAN technologies and standards.

The Global Markets chapter deals exclusively with quantitative forecasts with a special focus on the application of sensors. After providing a broad breakdown of the global market for wireless sensors, this section provides an overview of the astonishing body of use cases for wireless sensors and gives a detailed breakdown of the sensor market along these domains.

The Regional Analysis chapters take a closer look at the wireless sensor market for the various regions highlighted in this report. The Major Players chapter covers the extremely well-populated landscape of the wireless sensor industry. It identifies and explains the major stakeholder categories and then analyzes the initiatives undertaken by key companies.

The U.S. Patent Analysis chapter covers innovative activities that impact wireless sensors. Patents are also categorized in terms of application and architecture, as well as timing, assignee countries, and assignee organizations.

Breaks down the market by parameter measured in terms of dollar and unit sales.Breaks down the market by end vertical application in terms of dollar and unit sales.Breaks down the market by geographical region in terms of dollar and unit sales.Breaks down the market by wireless technology and standard in terms of dollar and unit sales.Identifies the market size in key country markets in terms of dollar and unit sales.

This report will be valuable to many industry participants, including the following:
