The Essential Wireless Technology Trends Report for 2008

August 25, 2008

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2a39f5/wireless_technolog) has announced the addition of the “Wireless Technology Trends Report 2008″ report to their offering.

This new study on wireless technology trends and forecasts status and potential of WiMAX, ZigBee, Ultrawideband, and Bluetooth. Pervasive uses for each technology are driven by rapidly increasing consumer demand for wireless connectivity.

The newly issued Wireless Technology Trends Report examines the market potential, effectiveness of existing technologies and components, global market trends, outstanding regulatory issues, progress of standards development, regional economic effects, and strategic developments of market makers. It also includes an evaluation of emerging wireless technologies including applications of WiMAX, IEEE 802.16m, LTE, Bluetooth, UWB, IEEE 802.11n, IEEE 802.15.4, EnOcean, and ZigBee. Further, an evaluation of the contribution by the individual technologies to future wireless market development is provided. Finally, a 5-year forecast that details sales volume, unit shipments, and average selling price by vertical technology segment provides data that can be used to build business or product plans.

“Over the last 12 months, many of the emerging wireless technologies have begun to exploit market sectors ranging from home automation to industrial and consumer electronics,” says Dr Kirsten West, Principal Analyst of WTRS.

“The adoption of wireless as a pervasive technology is not a matter of ‘if’, but when. The consumer desire for increasingly unfettered wireless connectivity is clear.”

This Wireless Technology Trends Report fills the need for a truly comprehensive wireless analysis designed to serve companies in need of understanding the position of individual technologies in the context of the overall market. This report is written for companies involved in or potentially entering the wireless market that are interested in a general overview accompanied by detailed forecasts.

Key Findings:

(1) Ultra wideband has shifted from a nascent technology to a solidly emerging protocol underlying the certified wireless USB and Bluetooth “high speed” implementations.

(2) Certified wireless USB will enable wireless transfer of photographs and other media from consumer electronics devices to personal computing and output devices.

(3) Bluetooth has undergone an expansion campaign over the last 18 months to incorporate newly-emerging protocols such as near-field communications (NFC), Wibree, and Ultra Wideband.

(4) ZigBee is poised to make great strides in the next year and many new products are expected to be released to market. It is very possible that the momentum of ZigBee will finally surge in 2008.

(5) Wireless delivery of high definition video content is an area that has very much emerged over the last 12 months. The market for wireless delivery of high definition video promises to be large, with decisive consumer adoption once the technology has been proven in end products.

(6) WiMAX has become a significant competition to alternative technologies in emerging markets.

Executive Summary:
