Bullet Wireless Sensor Systems Market


Research and Markets has released a new comprehensive analysis of the Wireless Sensor Systems market in which it suggests the prospects for WSN technology are most promising and the market for wireless sensor systems should grow rapidly over the next 5-10 years. Depending on the outcome of standardization efforts and developments in affiliated markets, sales of wireless sensor systems could reach 5 to 7 billion dollars in future. The WSN market must grow rapidly to reach such levels so quickly, however. As the market takes off from its current small base, sales will multiply year-to-year. Annual growth rates will fall through a still substantial 40 or 50%.


Wireless sensor networks represent an emerging set of technologies that will have profound effects across a range of industrial, scientific and governmental applications. A wireless sensor net is made up of a group of sensor nodes. Each sensor node possesses the ability to monitor some aspect of its environment, and each is able to communicate its observations through other nodes to a destination where data from the network is gathered and processed. Recent developments in wireless technologies and the semiconductor fabrication of miniature sensors are making WSNs smaller and more cost-effective for a growing number of uses.


WSN markets represent one aspect of a revolution occurring in data communication: the declining volume of people-to-people compared to machine-to-machine communication. The New York Times has quoted Intel's associate director of research, Hans Mulder, who predicts that wireless coordination between sensors and machines "will be pervasive in 20 years." This report sheds light on what the path to pervasive sensor-machine communication may look like. For more information visit:
