For many years, Power Line Communication (PLC) System has been built to communicate
low bandwidth analog and digital information over residential, commercial, and high
voltage power line. Power line has been considered for the transmission of electricity in
the past as well. However, with the emergence of modern networking technologies including
broadband, there is a more than ever need for utility and service providers to discover
solutions that are able to deliver the services to the consumers at minimum cost and
maxium performance. With the advent of smart grid and need for substation automation, the
potential of power line as a powerful medium to be able to deliver not only electricity or
control signals, but even full duplex high speed data and multimedia content are being
explored now.

This report describes the market trends, drivers, and challenges of the PLC technology

and forecasts the market to 2017, based on applications, technology, equipment, and
geography. This report covers geographies like the Americas, Europe, APAC, and ROW (Rest
of the World). Some of companies involved in PLC market are Echelon Corporation (U.S.),
Cypress Semiconductor Corporation (U.S.), Marvell Technology Group (Bermuda), Maxim
Integrated (U.S.), Qualcomm Atheros, Inc. (U.S.), Texas Instruments, Inc. (U.S.), etc.

The global PLC system revenue market is expected to grow from $2.94 billion in 2013 to
$7.10 billion in 2018 at a CAGR of 19.3%. In terms of revenue, the broadband market is
larger than the narrowband market with a split of 60-40 favoring broadband in 2012. The
global PLC unit shipment market is expected to grow from 38.90 million units in 2013 to
417.16 million units in 2018 at a CAGR of 60.7%. The N-PLC shipment market is larger than
that of B-PLC.

PLC is being used in a host of emerging and existing applications, including smart
grid, home automation, vehicle automation, broadband over power line, M2M communications,
etc. One of the major uses of PLC is in smart grid where it is used in automatic meter
reading (AMR) and automatic meter management (AMM), building automation, security,
electric vehicle charging, in micro-inverters for alternative sources of energy,
temperature and lighting. The major application of Power Line Communications (PLC) is in
smart grid. It is expected to hold around 75% of market in 2012. Besides, it is expected
to grow at a CAGR of 18.8% from 2013 to 2018.

This report also segments the global Power Line Communication Systems market
[http://www.marketsandmarkets.com/Market-Reports/power-line-communication-plc-market-912.html ]
by geography considering four segments such as the Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific
(APAC), and Rest of the World (ROW). The PLC market is highly geography specific, with
Europe leading the pack due to its early acceptance of the PLC technology. U.S. is the
biggest market in the Americas and its major revenue is from B-PLC applications like
in-home networking and control. APAC is an emerging market for PLC. China and Japan are
the fastest growing regions in APAC, with expected CAGR of 23.0% and 22.9% respectively
from 2013 to 2018.
