The IEEE 802.15.4 Integrated Circuit (IC) market is entering a phase of competitive dynamics, with different wireless technologies across market segments in the wireless sensor networks (WSN) industry. No single WSN technology or standard dominates across the WSN market segments. Instead, each standard has carved out niche positions in selected market segments, strengthening its dominance in these silos over time. On a broader scheme, WSN, a key building block toward the vision of smart cities, has garnered greater interest with the introduction of the Internet of Things (IoT) concept. The industry’s importance has grown eminently as WSN plays a vital role to initialize a connected device world.This report looks at the complete market for IEEE 802.15.4 and technologies or protocols competing in the same market segments. The report analyzes IEEE 802.15.4 and which standards, such as ZigBee, Wireless HART, and ISA100.11a, will influence and drive the market as well as emerging technology and competitive solutions such as Z-Wave, 6LoWPAN, Low Energy Bluetooth, and Low Power Wi-Fi. The forecast factors in the different standards by market verticals, the primary ones being energy management, AMI or smart metering, home automation, building automation, industrial automation, home entertainment, and medical/healthcare applications.
