Insights on Market Segments

Of all applications of energy harvesting systems, building and home automation has been contributing the highest revenue globally, with an estimated contribution of more than 35% in 2017. It is also expected to be the fastest growing category during the forecast period. This is due to rapid increase in implementation and installation of sensor-based technologies, and increase in demand for energy efficient power systems, from residential and commercial sectors.

Europe Stands as the Largest Energy Harvesting System Market

Europe has been contributing the largest revenue share to the energy harvesting system market, followed by North America. It is mainly attributed to the rise in automation of buildings and homes, and rapid growth of the industrial automation sector in these regions.

Rising Adoption of IoT And Big Data is the Key Growth Driver

Energy harvesting system market is developing well, and IoT and big data technologies have given it a real impetus. It is generally considered as the abstraction of operational power from the atmosphere to decrease the requirement of external power sources or batteries. Habitually, electricity is utilized to achieve some active sensing and interconnect the sensor data wirelessly over local area network (LAN) or wide-area network (WAN). In the coming years, millions or billions of devices are going to be connected to the internet. It is not surprising to allude that energy harvesting will be highly beneficial for IoT applications.

Emergence of Motion Energy Harvesters— A Lucrative Opportunity for Market Growth

A majority of wearables available in the energy harvesting system market are fitness trackers and other health application devices, which can also be driven by human motion. As wearables are becoming more preferred and common among consumers, the demand for energy to drive them is also increasing. Energy harvesting is emerging as a way to aid extra battery power in wearables. Energy harvesting also supplies energy to devices when the battery is exhausted and there is no availability of power supply.

Commonly, researchers have their hopes pinned on energy-harvesting to drive wearable devices and ultra-low power devices, that comparatively require less amount of power than conventional sources. In 2017, a team of researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology developed the ways to produce mechanical energy from the movements of human body, not only in standalone devices but also by integrating technology into fabrics. The emergence of new energy harvesting techniques has been proven to drive energy in ultra-low power applications. This provides immense growth opportunities to the energy harvesting system market across the globe.

Energy Harvesting System Market Competitiveness

As the energy harvesting system market sees high growth opportunities due to growth in energy harvesting practices in consumer electronics, and building and home automation categories, the competition gets tightened.

With increasing applications of energy harvesting systems across various industries, companies operating in this market are increasingly launching new products to enhance their offerings. For instance, in January 2018, EnOcean GmbH unveiled self-powered wireless sensors for energy harvesting solutions in IoT, in the International Consumer Electronics Show program which was held in Las Vegas. The solution is based on the company’s Bluetooth and sub 1 GHz band (ISO/IEC 14543-3-1x) wireless standards.
