The global market for Photonic Crystals (PhCs) Based Components and Modules is projected to reach US$16.4 billion by 2020, driven by technology developments in the field of photonics and special interest in photonic crystals for their ability to resolve signal communication issues on a chip. Demand potential for these novel light flow-altering optical materials is also forecast to benefit from increasing applications in the field of science, technology, biology and medicine. Asia-Pacific represents the largest and the fastest growing market worldwide with a projected CAGR of 18.3% over the analysis period. The growth in the region is led by the competitiveness of electronic manufacturing in countries such as Taiwan, Korea and China, and the continued transition of the semiconductor industry to smaller process geometries. LEDs represent the largest application area, while biosensors and solar & PV cells are forecast to emerge as the fastest growing end-use sectors.
The purpose of this report is to forecast the future (2016-2021) of the North American telecommunications network, and from that forecast to identify the major equipment needs to fulfill that forecast. There has been a great deal of turmoil in the area of telecommunications, much of it leading to spectacular changes and advances. Turmoil has been created by technological changes, by regulatory changes, by the development of new products and applications, by the introductions of new, or new flavors, of services, and by the entry of non-traditional competitors.
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been attracted huge attention over the past two decades, based on their extraordinary physical and chemical properties that are a result of their intrinsic nano-sized one-dimensional nature. Once the most promising of all nanomaterials, CNTs face stiff competition in conductive applications from graphene and other 2D materials and in mechanically enhanced composites from nanocellulose. However, after considerable research efforts, numerous multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs)-enhanced products are commercially available. Super-aligned CNT arrays, films and yarns have found applications in consumer electronics, batteries, polymer composites, aerospace, sensors, heaters, filters and biomedicine. Large-scale industrial production of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) has been initiated, promising new market opportunities in transparent conductive films, transistors, sensors and memory devices. SWNTs are regarded as one of the most promising candidates to utilized as building blocks in next generation electronics.
New report focuses on technologies and components in automotive applications that benefit from the advent of printed/flexible electronics and already represent a market of a few hundred million dollars in 2016. Some of the technologies described within the report are mature markets and are not expected to dramatically increase their market share or revenues (e.g. windscreen defoggers) whereas others, such as structural or in-mould electronics, are expected to grow significantly in the next decade. Finally, other technologies such as e-textiles for example, are expected to take a few more years of development before we see them rolled out into automotive applications. Overall, the market is expected to grow to over $5.5 billion dollars in the next decade, spearheaded by the growth of in-mould electronics and OLED technologies.
Internet of Things (IoT) Infrastructure: Market for IoT Platforms, Hardware, and Software 2015 – 2020
Anticipated to eventually support a multi-trillion dollar marketplace, IoT Platforms, Hardware, and Software are at the cornerstone of success for IoT-enabled products and services. Internet enabled hardware, chips, edge devices and other hardware used in IoT solutions will constitute 30% market of total revenue generated by 2020. Revenue generated in 2015 was approximately $330 billion and is projected to reach $453 billion by 2020 with a CAGR of 6.2%. In 2015, software for IoT generated revenue of roughly $197 billion by way of platforms, APIs, applications, controlling systems, security solutions, management and operations. Substantial growth is anticipated through the year 2020.
The global market for Consumer MEMS Inertial Sensors is projected to reach US$2.1 billion by 2020, driven by the growing demand for combo MEMS inertial sensors and increasing applications in smartphones and tablets. Development of affordable, high precision MEMS inertial sensors in compact form factors helps electronic product manufacturers design miniaturized devices. A key factor spurring the popularity of combo MEMS inertial sensors is the fact that these sensors alleviate space constraints in smartphones and tablets. The convenient plug-and-play feature additionally allows for easy integration into devices. Asia-Pacific represents the largest market worldwide, led by the region痴 manufacturing dominance in electronic goods, robustly growing domestic consumer electronics industry, digitalizing consumer lifestyles and the resulting increased appetite for electronic equipment. The region also ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 3% over the analysis period.
The value in machines having wireless communications has long been understood and a large market is predicted for many years. That this has not transpired yet has been because of the difficulty of meeting all the requirements within the constraints of the available radio spectrum.These constraints changed significantly with the advent of communications technologies specifically developed to serve IoT/M2M. This report addresses novel communications technologies designed for IoT/M2M. It concentrates on specifics of such communications; and addresses several recent or upcoming standards that are being developed for these purposes. It is very unlikely that IoT/M2M communications will be based on a single standard. Standards fragmentation that we have today is a reflection of many facets of IoT/M2M nature. In this report, we concentrate only on the most recent and, in our opinion, the most promising technologies to support long-reach IoT/M2M communications.
Ultra high-speed networks and IoE (Internet Of Everything) are two major cores when developing 5G. 5G applications developed around the world are designed to propel socioeconomic development and 5G technology development not only plays a role as a propeller but also as a catalyzer in the development of new living patterns and business models. This report profiles 5G development from regional, application, technology and spectrum perspectives with an aim to exploit its future opportunities. Also included is a brief overview of 5G development of some forerunners such as Huawei, Samsung, and Qualcomm.
The global market for Electronic Security Systems is projected to exceed US$80 billion by 2020, driven by the surging demand for CCTV and video surveillance systems and the critical need to restrict unauthorized entry and access amid escalating security concerns. Electronic Security represents the use of technology and electronic devices for ensuring safety and security of human life, physical assets, and business operations by tracking and preventing unauthorized access to restricted premises, sensitive data, or high value assets. As key enablers of advanced electronic security, alarms, electronic access controls systems (EACS) and CCTV and Video surveillance systems have been well received by security conscious individuals, commercial establishments, and governments across the world. Rise in terrorist attacks, vandalism, campus violence, and the resulting need for personal safety, and security at public places such as transits, city centers, educational institutions, as well as borders have been driving the ESS market over the years.
