ZigBee Lights Up the Internet of Things: A Market Dynamics Report

ZigBee is dominating the IEEE 802.15.4 ecosystem and is set to lead the smart home Internet of Things market. Annual shipments for 802.15.4 low power wireless chipsets doubled in 2014 and is on track to increase by 550% by 2020. ZigBee standards will be used in 80% of the 802.15.4 unit shipments at this time.

ZigBee PRO has the largest share of the 802.15.4 market today, with wireless mesh networking, advanced sensor applications and industry designed profiles developed over the past decade. In five years, ZigBee PRO will be used in over half of all 802.15.4 shipments with most of the growth coming from the smart home and smart lighting in particular. 

The IPv6 wireless mesh Thread specification-- planned to be announced in July-- will also be a key driver for the smart home market along with the upcoming ZigBee 3.0 that will unify ZigBee standards. The Thread Group and ZigBee Alliance have announced a collaboration to allow ZigBee application profiles to run over Thread networks.

ON World has been covering the ZigBee/802.15.4 market for the past 12 years. For this report, we interviewed chip suppliers, hardware and software developers, contacted major home retailers, surveyed smart home installers, surveyed thousands of consumers, analyzed hundreds of ZigBee products and tested 1 volt future chip technologies.

In this report-- our 11th edition-- we analyze the evolving market forces, technology advances and competitive dynamics for 22 unique WSN markets and provide 5-year forecasts for 802.15.4/ZigBee and competing alternatives including WiFi, Bluetooth, Z-Wave, EnOcean, ANT and other. It also includes key findings from a recently completed survey with 1,000+ consumers and and an extensive analysis of hundreds of ZigBee/802.15.4 products and services.
