Research and Markets: Low Power Embedded WiFi Brings Competition to the Wireless Sensor Network Market

DUBLIN — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 13, 2010Research and Markets( http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/681a53/low_power_embedded) has announced the addition of the " Low Power Embedded WiFi Emerging Technology Report" report to their offering.

A new report evaluates the opportunity for Low Power Wi-Fi chipsets. The report provides a 5-year forecast that details sales volume, unit shipments, and average selling price worldwide and by application.

This market report analyzes and forecasts the market for emerging Low Power Embedded WiFi technology.

The market for wireless sensor network technologies remains quite fragmented with a combination of open and proprietary approaches used to address a variety of applications. Of these, low power embedded WiFi is perhaps the most interesting due to the adaptation of existing WiFi protocols building on the installed base of WiFi networks that can be used as a connecting infrastructure for low power embedded WiFi installations.

The Low Power Embedded WiFi Emerging Technology Report, analyzes and forecasts the market for Low Power Embedded WiFi.

The report also

  • analyzes the opportunities for component OEMs
  • identifies inhibitors and drivers of the market
  • examines potential markets
  • evaluates participating OEMs

The report also provides a 5-year forecast that details sales volume, unit shipments, and average selling price worldwide and by application. Applications forecast include Smart Meter, HAN, Medical, Industrial, Building Automation, Transportation, Warehousing, Retail. Historical price and volume data is also included.

There are significant benefits to the use of Low Power Embedded WiFi in wireless sensor networks. The first of these is the obvious connectivity within existing WiFi networks in a given application space. In the current economic environment, Low Power Embedded WiFis reuse of existing WiFi infrastructures offers a key cost savings over installation of other WSNs based on 802.15.4 or ZigBee. Additionally, the built-in Internet Protocol connectivity enables much easier network deployment and management as well as the use of more well known development and management tools.

Proposed applications for Low Power Embedded WiFi sensor networks include Healthcare, Industrial, Building Automation, Smart Grid Utilities, Residential, Transportation, and even potentially consumer electronics remote control products. The opportunity is substantial and eclipses that of ZigBee, given the existing infrastructure that WiFi-based networks can leverage. The major weaknesses of Low Power Embedded WiFi include the execution risk by the startup companies developing the technology. The recent entry by Microchip into the market increases the chance from full-scale market adoption. Recent activity indicates that we are entering a period of consolidation for the low power embedded WiFi market in which large established component suppliers will purchase some of the smaller players. As the sector matures, it is likely that larger semiconductor companies such as TI and Freescale will go public with development programs as well.

The Low Power Embedded WiFi Emerging Technology Report is an essential tool for understanding the Low Power Embedded WiFi market. The report analyzes the potential market opportunities for component OEMs, describes drivers and inhibitors in the market, and analyzes addressable applications for low power embedded WiFi. The report also forecasts the sales volume, unit shipments, and average selling price worldwide and by vertical market segment, all segmented into four global GDP growth scenarios.

Report includes one hour consultation time.
