Wireless Charging Market (2012-2017) - Global Forecast and Analysis by Technology (Inductive, Magnetic Resonance, Radio Frequency (RF), Microwave, Optical Beam), Products (Pads and Receivers for Smartphones), Applications (Smartphones, Industrial, Medical, Military, Electric Vehicles)

Charging the battery of any electronic device without the use of cables and cords constitutes wireless charging. The concept of wireless charging was introduced by Nikola Tesla in the year 1899 where he demonstrated transmission of 100 million volts of electricity across 26 miles. This age old technology has come into being for charging consumer electronics, especially for smartphones as of 2011.

Wireless charging uses an electromagnetic field to transfer energy between two objects. This is usually done with a charging station. Energy is sent through inductive coupling to an electrical device, which then can use that energy to charge batteries or run the device.

Since the market is at a nascent stage, there are numerous opportunities in the market; such as having wireless charging embedded in commercial outlets such as cafι’s, cinema halls, airports, and so on. Besides, embedding receivers in the smartphones eliminates the need of using a sleeve. Charging electric vehicles wirelessly is a prominent field as of today and gaining momentum. There are several universities such as Stanford University (U.S.), Clemson University (U.S.) and companies conducting researches on the same.

Standards and interoperability are the major concerns in the market as of today. Since the market is in its infancy; there are no set standards with regards to wireless charging.

The Wireless Power Consortium established a standard for interoperability named “The Qi Standard”, which enables charging pads and devices with Qi certification to charge together. There are other emerging standards as well for charging the devices wirelessly.

The medical and the military applications contribute for a minor percentage of the wireless charging market as of 2011 and are expected to increase at slow rate.

The global wireless charging market is expected to reach $7.161 billion in 2017 from $456.86 million in 2011 at an estimated CAGR of 57.46% from 2012 to 2017. Japan ranks first in the wireless charging market. The market of North America will take a couple of years to grow due to the slow acceptance of the concept of wireless charging. The consumers are yet in the learning curve of the concept and will take time to accept this new technology.

Wireless charging, as the name suggests, comprises elimination of the need for cords, cables, and wires. The increase in the number of consumer electronics and other electronic devices has resulted in an increase in the amount of wires and cables. Wirelessly charging these devices would result in a more convenient option where the user will only have to place the electronic device on a table with chargers implanted and the device will be charged.

The wireless charger market is still in its infancy stage. The driving forces of this market as of today are convenience, reduction in power consumption as well as reduction in electronic waste. The potential challenges in this industry are the lack of standards and interoperability. Another potential challenge in the wireless charging space is the efficiency of charging wirelessly not at par in comparison to the wired charging.

It is expected that in the next five years furniture will also be equipped with wireless charging facilities and a user will not have to use cords or cables to charge mobile phones and other electronic items. Research is being carried out on charging televisions wirelessly and eliminating the long cords that are usually connected to the television. Wireless charging technology will provide more convenience to the users and help them charge electronic products at any place.

Electric vehicle is one of the high potential markets for wireless charging applications. These vehicles will be able to charge wirelessly with the help of copper coils fitted below the vehicle and the coils placed in the residential and commercial space and will not require any separate plug in stations.

The global market for wireless charging is expected to reach $7.161 billion in 2017 from $456.86 million in 2011 at an estimated CAGR of 57.46% from 2012 to 2017. Some of the players in the wireless charging markets are Powermat Technologies (U.S.), Energizer (U.S.), Verizon (U.S.) and many more.
