Wireless sensor networks covered in WTRS report

An in-depth assessment and analysis of chipsets and an analysis of the various sensor and M2M network layers is available in a report from West Technology Research Solutions (WTRS).

Called “Wireless Sensor Network Technology Trends, Q2 2011”, the report includes coverage of all significant emerging wireless sensor network technologies and applications.

The study analyses competitive activities by prominent industry alliances and market penetration of associated wireless sensor network protocols.

“Many of the technologies competing for market share in the wireless sensor network (WSN) sector are still in a developing state,” said Kirsten West, principal analyst with WTRS.

“It appears that much of the growth likely in 2011 will be due to market demand for solutions to overall network connectivity and battery-free operational constraints.”

The report analyses and forecasts the market for wireless sensor networks. It includes an evaluation of emerging WSN technologies and associated software including Zigbee, Bluetooth Low Energy, Wavenis, IEEE 802.15.4, Low Power Wifi, Z-Wave, Enocean and Dash7.

The report also analyses the potential market opportunities for WSNs, examines near versus long-range drivers impacting the market, tracks the activities of industry alliances, strategic partnerships and SIGs, contains an assessment and analysis of chipset features, and evaluates energy harvesting technologies used in wireless sensor networks.

The formation of industry alliances and SIGs are tracked as are the development of standards. Potential market opportunities for component OEMs are included and there is a description of initial versus long-range drivers in the market. Potential partnership opportunities and existing alliances are analysed.

The report details sales volume, unit shipments and average selling price by vertical market segment as well as by geography, all segmented into four global GDP growth scenarios.

There is a five-year forecasts of dominant emerging wireless sensor network technologies that detail sales volume, unit shipments and average selling price by vertical market segment as well as by geography. Applications forecast include smart metering, home area network, residential health, building automation, energy management, facility medical, industrial automation, consumer, medical, agriculture, security and transportation. Historical price and volume data is also included.
