Wireless Charging Market (2012-2017) - Global Forecast & Analysis by Technology (Inductive, Magnetic Resonance, Radio Frequency (RF), Microwave, Optical Beam), Products (Pads & Receivers for Smartphones), Applications (Smartphones, Industrial, Medical, Military, Electric Vehicles)
Charging the battery of any electronic device without the use of cables and
cords constitutes wireless charging. The concept of wireless charging was
introduced by Nikola Tesla in the year 1899 where he demonstrated transmission
of 100 million volts of electricity across 26 miles. This age old technology
has come into being for charging consumer electronics, especially for
smartphones as of 2011.
Wireless charging uses an electromagnetic field to transfer energy between two
objects. This is usually done with a charging station. Energy is sent through
inductive coupling to an electrical device, which then can use that energy to
charge batteries or run the device.
Since the market is at a nascent stage, there are numerous opportunities in
the market; such as having wireless charging embedded in commercial outlets
such as café's, cinema halls, airports, and so on. Besides, embedding
receivers in the smartphones eliminates the need of using a sleeve. Charging
electric vehicles wirelessly is a prominent field as of today and gaining
momentum. There are several universities such as Stanford University (U.S.),
Clemson University (U.S.) and companies conducting researches on the same.
Standards and interoperability are the major concerns in the market as of
today. Since the market is in its infancy; there are no set standards with
regards to wireless charging.
The Wireless Power Consortium established a standard for interoperability
named “The Qi Standard”, which enables charging pads and devices
with Qi certification to charge together. There are other emerging standards
as well for charging the devices wirelessly.
The medical and the military applications contribute for a minor percentage of
the wireless charging market as of 2011 and are expected to increase at slow
The global wireless charging market is expected to reach $7.161 billion in
2017 from $456.86 million in 2011 at an estimated CAGR of 57.46% from 2012 to
2017. Japan ranks first in the wireless charging market. The market of North
America will take a couple of years to grow due to the slow acceptance of the
concept of wireless charging. The consumers are yet in the learning curve of
the concept and will take time to accept this new technology.
