The Wireless Control Network Technology Trends Report provides the industry’s only examination of current market conditions and design win analysis for ZigBee, 802.15.4, Wavenis, Z-Wave, and INSTEON. The report examines the market potential, intellectual property issues, state of the industry supply chain, effectiveness of existing technologies and components, total addressable market of the applications adopting wireless control network technologies today, and market share of the existing component level hardware and software products.

“There is a general consensus among the silicon providers that consumer applications, for both ZigBee and IEEE 802.15.4, will not emerge on a significant scale until the industry is prepared to lower its margins to a level that enables consumer products to add this new functionality without dramatically increasing the overall product cost,” says Dr Kirsten West, Principal Analyst. “In general, estimates range from 2-4 years before component markets are mature enough to support adoption by consumer applications.”
