The sizing of the power line carrier communication market has been done by the top-down and bottom-up approach. The bottom-up approach has been employed to arrive at the overall size of the power line carrier communication market from the revenues of key players (companies) and their respective contribution in the market. In the top-down approach, the overall market size has been used to estimate the size of the individual markets (mentioned in the market segmentation) through percentage splits from secondary research (including study of associations, databases, journals such as PLCforum Association, IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), and others), and primary researches. For the calculation of specific market segments, the most appropriate parent market size has been used to implement the top-down approach. After arriving at the overall market size, the total markets have been split into several segments and subsegments, which have been verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with people holding key positions in the industry, such as CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives.

The market breakdown and data triangulation procedures have been employed to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and subsegments. The breakdown of the profiles of primaries is depicted in the below figure:

The global power line carrier communication (PLCC) market is expected to grow from USD 4.11 Billion in 2015 to USD 11.27 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 15.18% between 2016 and 2022. The market of PLCC is majorly driven by increasing installation of smart grids across geographies, and ability to offer wide data transmission coverage while incurring low capital investments. The growth of PLCC market can also be attributed to the high adoption rate of power line carrier systems in the residential, commercial, and industrial verticals, ongoing transitions of existing electrical metering terminals to advanced metering infrastructure, and growing market space for smart lighting controllers.

PLCC market has been segmented on the basis of frequency into narrowband and broadband. The narrowband PLCC market accounted for largest market share in 2015, and the trend is expected to remain same in nearest future as well. The key factors driving the growth of the narrowband PLCC market include system requirement for low-speed data control and monitoring signals (especially in remote applications), minimal signal losses during long distance communications, and increasing adoption of narrowband PLCC systems in residential, commercial, and industrial metering infrastructure.

The market has also been segmented on the basis of application into smart grid, indoor networking, and long haul. Smart grids are among the leading applications of PLCC devices; a significant adoption rate of PLCC-based systems for smart grid applications has been observed in the current year. This application segment is gaining momentum in both the developing and developed countries. Growing focus toward intelligent load monitoring during peak hours, increasing market space for advanced metering infrastructure and automatic meter reading applications, and rising focus toward automation of electric grid distribution networks are some of the key factors driving the growth of the PLCC market for smart grid applications.

The PLCC market has been broadly classified on the basis of geography into the North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and Rest of the World (RoW). Out of these four regions, Europe led the global power line carrier communication market (in terms of market value) in the last few years and, is further estimated to lead the market by 2022. However, APAC is expected to emerge as the fastest-growing market during the forecast period, owing to the growing number of smart metering applications and intelligent load management devices, and economic advantages for establishing communication link by using the PLCC technology. Various developed and developing countries in APAC, including China, Japan, and India, witnesses surging demand for PLCC-based lighting control applications in the roadways, parking areas, tunnels, street lighting, and other commercial and industrial sectors. This is further expected to fuel the growth of the PLCC market in APAC.

Power Line Carrier Communication Market

One of the key restraining factors for the growth of the PLCC market is the availability of various competing wired- and wireless- communication technologies in the market. Also, the systems operating on PLCC technology are highly sensitive to electrical noises, which could further inhibit the growth of PLCC market. PLCC technology currently faces challenges in terms of lack of common standards and regulations. However, increasing demand for PLCC based systems from countries across APAC region generates significant opportunities for this market in the near future.

The major players in the power line carrier communication market include Maxim Integrated Products Inc. (U.S.), Texas Instruments Inc. (U.S.), STMicroelectronics N.V. (Switzerland), Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (U.S.), Broadcom Ltd. (U.S.), Semtech Corp. (U.S.), ABB Ltd. (Switzerland), Microsemi Corp. (U.S.), ON Semiconductor Corp. (U.S.), Atmel Corp. (U.S.), and Yitran Technologies Ltd. (Israel) among others. These players have adopted various strategies such as new product launches, mergers & acquisitions, partnerships, collaborations, and business expansions to cater to the needs of the PLCC market.
