Wireless sensor devices connect sensors wirelessly among each other as well as to monitoring and management setups. While the sensing principles are consistent with that of wireline sensors, wireless sensors have the challenge of operating with an attractive form and with robust power management.
The payout is spectacular. In most cases, wireless sensors beat their wireline counterparts hands down in the following aspects:
Wireless sensor devices are the actual sensing elements that are present in the wireless sensor networks. They do not include gateways or management software.
This report deals exclusively with wireless technologies employed in the personal area network (PAN) and local area network (LAN) topologies. It does not cover wide area networks (e.g., commercial cellular networks).
This study's goals and objectives include the following:
Wireless sensor networks are the drivers of the grand scheme of the Internet of Things. This scheme visualizes the networking and connection of practically any device that can embed a communicating modem. While this premise is no doubt exciting, there are very few drivers in the near future than can pave the path for its realization. Wireless sensor networks are one of these few drivers. They are arguably the most tangible, realizable, and commercially viable drivers for the Internet of Things.
However, the fit into this grand scheme is only an aside to the wireless sensor story. The main theme here is the phenomenal amount of use cases that can be engendered by the technology. These include the wireless enablement of existing wireline sensors as well as the spawning of new use cases altogether.
Everything is, however, not all positive. The technology faces compelling technical and business challenges that need to be overcome before it can realize its potential. This report is an effort towards forecasting the market size for wireless sensor devices in the face of these challenges.
This report presents the forecasts for wireless sensor devices employed in PANs and LANs for 2011 through 2016 on a volume and value basis. These forecasts are further broken down by the various parameters that can be measured by the sensors, by end applications, and by geographical regions.
The report covers the following parameters that can be measured by wireless sensor devices:

The regional breakdown focuses on the following geographical areas:
Country-specific analyses are included for the following countries:
The report covers the following wireless technologies and standards:
The Executive Summary chapter provides an end application, domain-wise breakdown of the dollar sales of wireless sensor devices. The Overview chapter deals with the fundamentals of sensors and introduces the various measurable parameters. It also covers the major technology and business challenges confronting the wireless sensor domain and introduces the reader to the concepts of energy harvesting. The chapter familiarizes the reader with the leading wireless PAN and LAN technologies and standards.
The Global Markets chapter deals exclusively with quantitative forecasts with a special focus on the application of sensors. After providing a broad breakdown of the global market for wireless sensors, this section provides an overview of the astonishing body of use cases for wireless sensors and gives a detailed breakdown of the sensor market along these domains.
The Regional Analysis chapters take a closer look at the wireless sensor market for the various regions highlighted in this report. The Major Players chapter covers the extremely well-populated landscape of the wireless sensor industry. It identifies and explains the major stakeholder categories and then analyzes the initiatives undertaken by key companies.
The U.S. Patent Analysis chapter covers innovative activities that impact wireless sensors. Patents are also categorized in terms of application and architecture, as well as timing, assignee countries, and assignee organizations.
Both primary and secondary research methodologies were used in preparing this report. BCC Research presents an analysis across the global market for wireless sensor devices employed in PANs and LANs based on reported revenue dollars and units shipped. We also analyzed data gathered from various research sources via the Internet. Interviews were conducted with well-placed industry sources.
