Multi-Billion Dollar Home Area Network
Ecosystem within 5 Years
ON World’s recently published reports cover ZigBee, Wireless Sensor Networking (WSN), and the emerging Smart Energy Home market that could reach $3 billion in 2014.
San Diego, CA, November 10, 2010— Smart Grid initiatives have energized the “Internet of Things” and soon Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology will be deployed in millions of neighborhoods and homes worldwide, according to ON World, a global market research firm.
“The Home Area Network (HAN) is becoming the developer opportunity of the coming decade,” says Mareca Hatler, ON World’s research director. “Although smart metering is the largest Smart Grid market today, the HAN promises to be the fastest growing with new products and services appearing daily.”
The Smart Energy Home
WSN technologies such as ZigBee and its Smart Energy Profile have drawn developers from the energy, security, Telecom, consumer products, and home networking industries. Supported by market leaders such as Belkin, Cisco, D-Link and GE, ZigBee has become the preferred HAN technology by Smart Home platform providers worldwide.
Connecting with the HAN
By 2015, 250 million wireless chipsets will be used in products for building a smarter grid.
Based on 1000+ phone interviews and surveys with consumers and professionals, ON World’s recently published reports cover ZigBee, smart metering, green buildings, and home energy management. For more information, go to: http://www.onworld.com/smartgrid
