The wireless connectivity market, in terms of value, is expected to reach at USD 24.69 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.6% between 2016 and 2022. Major drivers for the growth of wireless connectivity are increasing connectivity of the internet, growing demand for smartphones and other wirelessly connected devices, increasing market for cloud computing and IoT, and increasing demand for low-power wide-area networks (LPWA) network. However, lack of uniform communication standards and interference with other electromagnetic sources, physical object, and layered structure limit the growth of wireless connectivity technology, thereby acting as constraints for the growth of the wireless connectivity market.
"Wi-Fi wireless connectivity technology is expected to have highest market during the forecast period"
The Wi-Fi technology has been broadly accepted and has been used across the globe since its inception 16 years ago. Devices such as routers, repeaters, and modems, which have application in almost every sector be it commercial or residential, are the major consumers of the Wi-Fi chips. With growing IoT ecosystem, the market for connected devices is expected to grow during the forecast period. Telecommunication plays a very important role in providing connectivity to devices, such as smartphones, smart meters, and wearable, among others. The Wi-Fi Alliance is working on new type of Wi-Fi named Wi-Fi HaLow that works on new IEEE 802.ah standard and uses bandwidth of 900 MHz. It requires low power and can connect to a large number of devices, thereby making it as one of the ideal technologies for applications such building automation and healthcare.
