Wireless Charging Solutions

With the emergence of multiple wireless power consortiums, the development of wireless power technologies is now heavily focused on integration into the mobile handset and mobile devices ecosystems. With tight handset integration, the wireless power market and its solutions will be able to capture unprecedented volume and awareness which can be leveraged to promote a pervasive network of wireless charging terminals in both home and public venues.

This report focuses on the advancements in the design of transmitter and receiving coils that drive the design of wireless charging products. Transmission coils are segmented by single and multi-device charging solutions, loose and tight coupling solutions, and end-use markets such as standalone charging pads, automotive, and public venue applications. Receiving coils are segmented and forecast by low and mid power solutions and device segments that include smartphones, feature phones, media tablets, Bluetooth headsets, and protective cases. This report also discusses the three key wireless power consortiums and their technology strategies.
