Restraint: Interference from other narrowband wireless systems

UWB-based wireless communications systems are highly vulnerable to interference from other existing narrowband wireless communication systems due to very low-power transmission of short pulses in UWB-based wireless communication. Wireless UWB systems use an allocated frequency spectrum in many parts of the world. The use of the allocated frequency spectrum under the unlicensed spectrum for UWB technology is possible because of the low power spectral density of the UWB signal. For communication, the UWB system uses the frequency band ranging from 3.1 to 10.6 GH, and other narrowband wireless communication standards such as IEEE802.11a and cellular networks can interfere with UWB signals as they operate in similar frequency spectrums. Thus, the high risk of interference limits the growth of UWB technology for outdoor wireless communication applications.

Opportunity: New application areas of UWB technology in wireless sensor network

A wireless sensor network is a type of ad hoc network designed for areas where wiring and power supply is difficult to achieve. Over the years, wireless sensor network has gained significant attention in the military, transportation, and other industries. The conventional carrier-based wireless communication technologies are unable to meet the requirements for low power consumption, low cost, user-friendly design, and interference immunity. Hence, researchers are getting attracted toward UWB technology due to its feature of short pulses. The use of carrier less short pulses in UWB, which offers effective and reasonable transmission in the wireless sensor network, has an array of advantages over other carrier-based communication technologies. The advantages of UWB technology-based solutions in terms of cost, size, and power consumption fulfill the requirements of the microsensor node used in the wireless sensor network. Moreover, its capability for high data transmission in a short distance facilitates the gateway nodes to transmit data.

Challenge: Complexities in channel estimation for UWB communications

Channel estimation is one of the most important parameters considered while designing a receiver for deployment in any wireless communications network. The receiver used in the UWB-based wireless communication system correlates the received signal with a predefined template signal. However, as a result of the extremely wide bandwidth and very low signal energy, a short pulse used in UWB technology undergoes pulse distortion, thereby making channel estimation in the UWB-based communication system highly complicated. Furthermore, the large frequency band of UWB increases the antenna swap-out (or additions), as well as the complexity of antenna counts, which makes the channel estimation more difficult.

Indoor positioning systems are expected to hold largest market share during forecast period

UWB is an emerging technology that has shown better performance in indoor positioning. Indoor positioning systems (IPS) are capable of determining the real-time position of an object in a physical space. The indoor positioning system can be integrated with indoor navigation systems for blind and visually impaired people; they can also be combined with locating devices installed in buildings, aiding visitors to find an emergency exit in a smoky environment, tracking kids in crowded places, and tracking expensive equipment. Nowadays, consumer, healthcare, industrial, and retail verticals, among others, require communications, precision positioning, or radar systems for communication, video streaming, surveillance, and many other applications, thus giving rise to UWB technology-based indoor positioning systems.

Communication application to hold largest share of UWB market in 2025

The demand for wireless wideband communications systems has increased significantly owing to emerging applications such as mobile ad-hoc networking and data collection through a wireless sensor network. UWB wireless technology offers significant advantages in this application owing to its narrow pulses and high localization precision. UWB communications systems are receiving significant attention due to their high data rates and low power consumption, as well as the ability to reduce interference. Owing to the energy-efficient operation of UWB technology, battery-driven consumer electronic devices are feasible for short-range communication. In the swiftly developing communication application, high data rate transition, covering a larger area, is required. Hence, UWB antennas are used for wireless communication, thereby driving the market for UWB technology.
