Combined 802.15.4 chip and module shipments are forecast to reach 850 million units in 2014. This PowerPoint report plus Excel forecast through 2020 covers the status of 802.15.4 and ZigBee. In addition to unit shipments, ASPs, revenues, and Bill of Material (BOM) forecasts are included. Application forecasts include residential automation, commercial and government building control, lighting, medical, smart grid, industrial process control, and consumer electronics.
Smart Energy to be Largest Volume Growth Opportunity for 802.15.4 and ZigBee
ZigBee has been languishing as a technology for nearly 10 years, unable to find an application that would provide a launching pad for its mass adoption. That search may be over. With government stimulus and mandates forcing utilities to better manage electricity usage, smart energy is gaining traction as the largest volume growth opportunity for 802.15.4 and ZigBee, helping to push forecasts of chip and module shipments to over exceed three quarters of a billion units by 2014.
“Energy management organizations as well as IT companies like Google, are also taking an interest in helping drive ZigBee to the forefront of network adoption”, says Brian O’Rourke, Principal Analyst. “Proprietary solutions still have a large share of the market, but because government measures require standards-based solutions, ZigBee stands to benefit significantly in the long run.”
Some of the findings include:
- In-Stat expects to see early growth in numerous market segments throughout the forecast period. However, aggressive growth is not expected until 2015 and beyond.
- Industrial process control will be the second largest application by volume.
- The ZigBee Alliance is expanding its participation in the European Union’s Smart Grid standardization efforts.
- Smart Energy and Smart Grid initiatives are worldwide, but it remains a regional determination regarding technology adoption.
- Other opportunities exist in the energy space around solar monitoring and energy transport.

- Primary research conducted via telephone briefings and email correspondence with companies who manufacture and market ZigBee chipsets, modules, or end products.
- Research conducted July through September 2010.
- Resources include sources in the public domain, such as annual reports and financial filings, white papers, presentations, and other Internet-based resources.
- All revenue figures are in US dollars. In-Stat realizes that conversion rates fluctuate. Some totals in this report may not add up exactly due to rounding.
- The numbers for a given year represent products shipped in that year, not products purchased by consumers.
