New Topical Semiconductors Industry Reports by GBI Research

13 Mar 2012 • by Natalie Aster

Wireless Sensor Networks Market to 2016 - Energy Harvesting Techniques to Create New Opportunities. Emerging technologies such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), ZigBee Green Power, Wi-Fi Direct and EnOcean technologies will enable Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) to drive into new areas of application such as medical devices, healthcare, automotives, energy efficient buildings, sports and agriculture.

The overall Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) chipsets market consists of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.15.4 chipsets, Wireless Fidelity (WiFi) chipsets and Bluetooth low energy chipsets. The sales volume is forecast to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 46% during 2011 - 2016. The figure below gives the sales volume of the overall WSN chipsets for the years 2011 and 2016.

Near Field Communication (NFC) Market to 2016 - Increased Availability of NFC Embedded Handsets Key for Higher Market Penetration. NFC is a wireless or contactless communication technology based on International Organization for Standardization (ISO), European Computers Manufacturers Association (ECMA) and European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) standards. It is comparable with other existing technologies such as MIFARE and FeliCa. The main application areas of NFC-based integrated circuits (ICs) are for mobile-based payments in the retail segment and transportation ticketing.

The report covers the latest information and research efforts of a number of NFC companies and organizations around the world. The report provides information on the market size of different NFC secure element (SE) form factors and provides analysis of the key NFC end user market segments. It also provides a comparative analysis of NFC and MIFARE, FeliCa, Square and Bluetooth (BT). The report discusses the NFC ecosystem and its partners, and the different business models that could be potentially deployed. Expert views and comments from various organizations and companies, such as GSMA, Sequent Software Inc, EMVCo and Comprion GmbH, are also included.
