"Wireless sensor network component markets continue to grow, although more slowly than anticipated," according to Kirsten West, principal analyst with WTRS. "Generally companies appear to be waiting for the results of this fall's U.S. presidential election before making further technology investments or commitments for investment."
WSN technologies are becoming available in more useful forms than simple protocol specifications and chipsets. Modules are becoming more sophisticated and more capable of meeting the demands of a broad market opportunity across all WSN technology types. A broad majority of the market opportunity for wireless sensor networks exists in applications that represent smaller individual market volumes, not worth the development costs entailed in producing a chip for many of the large semiconductor manufacturers. However combined these lower volume opportunities represent tremendous sales potential for companies directly engaged with consumers of the end products.
