Description

REPORT HIGHLIGHTS

The global market for energy harvesters reached $880 million in 2014. This market should reach $1.1 billion in 2015 and $3.3 billion by 2020, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 23.9%.

This report provides:

  • An overview of the global markets, technologies, and devices for energy harvesting.
  • Analyses of market trends, with data from 2014, estimates for 2015, and projections of CAGRs through 2020.
  • Breakdowns of the energy harvesting market by geographical region, end-use application, and energy source including:
    • Solar and photovoltaic
    • Thermal
    • Vibration, displacement and mechanical (including biomechanical and electrostatic); also occasionally referred to as mechanical
    • Radiation and electromagnetic
    • Chemical
  • A look at how energy harvesting crosses many industries and disciplines such as energy management, instrumentation, wireless and wireline communication, materials, nanotechnology and regulation.
  • Analysis of the market's dynamics, specifically growth drivers, inhibitors, and opportunities.
  • Information on cutting edge breakthroughs by means of a detailed patent analysis.
  • Comprehensive company profiles of major players in the industry.

SCOPE OF THE REPORT

This report presents the forecasts for energy harvesters for 2015 through 2020 on a volume and value basis. Sales values in terms of dollar sales are presented in U.S. dollars, while sales values in terms of unit sales are presented in thousand units. The choice of thousands as a denomination unit was dictated by the shipment volumes for specific categories, which would have otherwise appeared too insignificant. It is important to note that energy harvesters can power wireless sensor nodes, which will ship by the billions in the future. Energy harvesters will also power several other device categories that will not be as prolific in number as wireless nodes, but that will experience tremendous growth as well.

The forecasts are further broken down by energy source, end application, and region. The report covers the following energy sources:

  • Solar and photovoltaic.
  • Thermal.
  • Vibration, displacement, and mechanical (including biomechanical and electrostatic)-also occasionally referred to simply as mechanical.
  • Radiation and electromagnetic.
  • Chemical.

The breakdown of end-use applications includes:

  • Telecommunications.
  • Building, construction, and home automation.
  • Energy exploration, generation, and distribution.
  • Environment and agriculture.
  • Industrial and automotive.
  • Defense.
  • Retail and logistics.
  • Medical.

The regional breakdown focuses on the following regions:

  • The Americas.
  • Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA).
  • Asia-Pacific (APAC).

The “Executive Summary” chapter provides the regional breakdown of the dollar sales of energy harvesters. The “Fundamentals of Energy Harvesting” chapter introduces energy harvesting and its definition, history, drivers, and challenges. It also provides an overview of the larger market and breaks it down by the key characteristics of principal energy sources and application categories.

The “Global Energy Harvesting Market: Breakdown by Energy Source and Application” chapter provides an in-depth picture of the energy harvester business opportunities. The market in terms of dollar and unit sales for energy harvesters is broken down by energy sources and then by application categories. The market for individual energy sources in turn is broken down by end-application categories. The market for individual application categories is then broken down by energy sources and regions.

The “Major Participants in the Energy Harvesting Industry” chapter identifies the major categories of stakeholders involved in the development and commercialization of energy harvester technology. The “U.S. Patent Analysis” chapter covers innovations that impact energy harvesters. Patents are categorized in terms of energy sources and areas of value, as well on the basis of allocation by year, assignee countries, and assignee organizations.
