Technavio Announces Top Nine Vendors in the Global ZigBee Enabled Devices Market for 2016-2020
Technavio has announced the top nine leading vendors in their recent global
ZigBee enabled devices market 2016-2020 report. This research
report also lists 18 other prominent vendors who are expected to gain
market share over the forecast period.
To identify the top vendors, Technavio's market research analysts have
considered the top revenue contributors for the ZigBee (News - Alert) enabled devices
market. The report includes market forecast of the global ZigBee market
based on product segments that implement ZigBee wireless technology
(connected light bulbs, remote controls, smart meters, smart
thermostats, and set-top-box).
The analysis in this report is based on vendor briefings, interviews
with industry experts, and telephone and online surveys. Technavio
analysts have also presented a breakdown of market shares by the leading
regions, including APAC, Americas, and EMEA.
What spurs the demand for ZigBee?
Need for low-energy wireless technology
Technavio's senior market research analyst for consumer
electronics, Sunil Singh
says, "Though bluetooth and wi-fi technology is immensely popular and
are extensively used in many IoT (internet of things) devices, these
require high energy levels through battery-powered devices. Consumers
and service providers are thus opting for alternate wireless
technologies such as ZigBee to improve energy efficiency. ZigBee has a
lower energy consumption rate than bluetooth and wi-fi and a longer
communication range. ZigBee and ZigBee Pro require only 1/10,000th of
the energy that is typically needed to run a wi-fi network. The use of a
ZigBee wireless network thus counters low battery life and reduces the
harmful effects of battery disposal, making it a more viable alternative
to other connecting technologies."
