Global ZigBee Set-Top Box Market 2014 – 2018 (http://www.sandlerresearch.org/global-zigbee-set-top-box-market-2014-2018.html): The digitization of cable TV is likely to give consumers a wider range of channels and better picture quality. Moreover, it helps service providers offer more channels at a lower cost. In addition, digitization provides consumers with HD audio and video in a lower price range. In developing countries such as India, the government is mandating the digitization of cable TV. This process of digitization is expected to increase the demand for STBs during the forecast period. This demand will in turn give rise to purchase of advanced STBs such as ZigBee-enabled STBs.
According to the report, power-saving capability is an important feature of a ZigBee RF4CE device. The specifications for ZigBee RF4CE include a power-saving mechanism which allows both controller devices and target devices to enter a power-saving mode and manage their power consumption and thereby prolong battery life.
Key vendors dominating this space are Atmel Corp., Cisco Systems Inc., Comcast Corp., Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd., Pace plc, Sony Corp, STMicroelectronics N.V., Texas Instruments Inc., and ZTE Corp.
Other vendors mentioned in the report are Advanced Digital Broadcast SA, Amino Communications Ltd EchoStar Corp., Emerson Electric Co., Freescale Semiconductors Inc., GreenPeak Technologies, Humax Co. Ltd., LG Electronics Microchip Technology, Motorola Mobility LLC, Roger Communications Inc., Swisscom AG Time Warner Cable Inc., and TiVo Inc.

Satellite M2M services are gaining momentum in emerging geographies such as the MEA region, Latin America, and Southeast Asia, mainly because the penetration of low-cost wireless networks is very low in these geographies. In addition, there has been a rapid increase in the demand for M2M services in remote areas across the globe. The use of M2M technology is extremely useful for applications, especially on ships. M2M can help in applications such as tracking fishing vessels and dangerous cargos and monitoring offshore wind farms. The Defense sector is also using satellite M2M services to track combat assets. Several terrestrial satellite providers such as Orbcomm Inc., Inmarsat plc, and Iridium Communication Inc. are developing innovative M2M terrestrial networks for offering services to communication providers. Hence, the increased usage of satellite M2M services is a new trend that is expected to boost the growth of the market over the next few years.
Analysts forecast the Global M2M Services market (http://www.sandlerresearch.org/global-m2m-services-market-2014-2018.html) to grow at a CAGR of 21.35 percent over the period 2013-2018. According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is the increased adoption of M2M services by individual users and enterprises. Nowadays, people across the globe are increasingly using mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, and PDAs for personal and official purposes. Since these mobile devices are intelligently connected with advanced M2M modules, smart sensors, and software, individual users are increasingly adopting M2M services.
