The new WTRS Wireless Control Network Current Market Assessment examines the specific design wins and development projects, state of the industry supply chain, effectiveness of existing technologies and components, and market share of the existing component level hardware products within the wireless control sphere.
"End product companies and component companies alike are attempting to quantify relative market positions and current design wins which will yield product shipments in 2007 and 2008 for both 802.15.4 and ZigBee wireless technology applications," says Dr Kirsten West, Principal Analyst of WTRS. "We have surveyed the top vendors and have released the results in this market brief."
The WTRS Wireless Control Network Current Market Assessment uncovers:
(1) The current conversion rate of ZigBee development kit shipments to active product development programs.
This enables companies to forecast internal revenues for 2007.
(2) The significant market penetration of Wavenis across a wide range of sectors.
(3) The relative market adoption of INSTEON, Wavenis, Z-Wave, ZigBee, and IEEE 802.15.4.
(4) ZigBee & IEEE 802.15.4 component market share for 2006.
(5) The top ZigBee transceivers available today and assessment of their applicability for various product market applications.
(6) Supply issues in manufacturing experienced by ZigBee competition.
Wireless Control Networks are systems which utilize wireless technologies as the underlying platform to deploy networks for sensor and control applications. Examples of technologies and protocols included in the "Wireless Control Network" are WSN (wireless sensor networks), M2M, mesh networking, ZigBee, INSTEON, IEEE 802.15.4, RFID, Z-Wave, Wavenis, and others.
Using only publicly available information, meticulously gathered from public patent sources, filing information, court activities, and other research this report is truly an invaluable resource for any company participating in the ZigBee standard, or planning a potential entry into this market.
