EnOcean Module Shipments of Wireless Sensors to Reach $1.4 billion in 2013, Says WTRS

New EnOcean "energy harvesting" technology enlists 74 members in their month-old EnOcean Alliance, including such names as Distech Controls, Texas Instruments, Masco, Sylvania, Thermokon and more. This new wireless sensor network technology already installed in over 10,000 buildings. Clearly, it has achieved traction. WTRS completes the first study of this technology and forecasts strong market growth, while evaluating the competitive environment.

The newly released "WTRS EnOcean Emerging Technology Report, Summer 2008" covers the emerging EnOcean wireless sensor network technology and compares it to competitive protocols including IEEE 802.15.4, Z-Wave, Wavenis, and ZigBee. The report tracks the formation of the EnOcean Alliance, development of standards, analyzes the potential market opportunities for component OEMs, describes initial versus long-range drivers in the market, and analyzes potential partnership opportunities and existing alliances.

"EnOcean has rapidly emerged as a significant competitor in the wireless sensor network arena," according to Kirsten West PhD, principal analyst with WTRS. "The combination of significant adopters, battery-less operation, and a mature and robust wireless sensor network protocol provide the market drivers required to succeed in today's market conditions. Given these and other factors, we forecast that EnOcean module shipments will reach $1.4 billion in 2013."
 
This market report includes analysis of EnOcean technology and alliance development, as well as an evaluation of current patent, technology, and corporate developments. The report analyzes six market segments likely to adopt EnOcean technology. The report includes global & regional market trends & forecasts, regulatory issues, standards development, economic effects, and strategic developments.
