The global WSN industry is accruing pervasively; mainly due to the augmenting demand for the wireless network in some burgeoning industries such as oil & gas and transportation. Additionally, factors such as the growing automation and robotics industry and high reliability of wireless sensor network act as a tailwind to the market growth, escalating the market to further heights on the global platform.
Acknowledging the exponential growth, the market perceives currently; Market Research Future (MRFR) in its recently published study report asserts that the global WSN industry is estimated to witness an outstanding growth by 2022, posting a striking CAGR of 14% throughout the forecast period (2016 – 2022).
Increasing interference on wireless sensor networks is becoming a key issue in the deployment of wireless sensor networks and wireless communication systems. Simultaneously, with the emergence of 5G communications systems and the Internet of Things (IoT), there are over 50,000 Mn. wireless devices are expected to be on the global space by the year 2020. Given the distribution of radiated output by a transmitter in a specific scenario enables optimal radio planning to take place. This presages the kind of growth the market will be witnessing soon.
Additional factors substantiating the market growth include the proliferation of the Internet, IoT, and connected devices. Besides the BYOD trend in the organizations is fostering the growth of the WSN industry, serving as an emerging growth opportunity in the market.
The widespread adoption and demand, in turn, foster the market growth of wireless sensor network to a large extent. Moreover, augmented uptake of these networks in military and homeland security is providing impetus to the market growth. On the other hand, skepticism of end-user consumers towards the uptake of this embryonic technology coupled with the risk of failure of wireless sensor network may restrict its adoption further hindering the market growth.
