The report on ubiquitous sensor networks titled "Wireless Sensor Networks 2011-2021" has been added by Research and Markets to their report offerings.
The research on wireless sensor networks (WSN) was conducted by research, advisory and consulting services provider for photovoltaics, electric vehicles, wireless & RFID sensors, energy harvesting, printed electronics and smart packaging, IDTechEx.
Wireless sensor networks are self-healing and self-organizing networks feature small nodes and play an important role in threat detection, traditional sensing, and environmental monitoring and in mission critical systems.
The report indicates that from 2011 to 2021, the WSN market will witness a phenomenal growth, from $0.45 billion to $2 billion. The deployment of wireless sensor networks will become essential for monitoring of disasters such as avalanches, forest fires, hurricanes as well as for the monitoring of hospitals, traffic and utility equipment spread over wider areas. The use of WSN technology in applications such as automated meter readings in manufacture & process control and buildings is testimony of its growing acceptance.
In the report, IDTechEx has profiled the key WSN players. USA is a leading player due to the advanced computing technologies developed by IBM and Microsoft. Korea, Japan, United Kingdom, Germany, Netherlands and Switzerland follow closely behind in terms of their contribution and market size. The report also profiles the relevant power source suppliers and the developers of the WSN technology, including Harvard, MIT, IBM, Toshiba, NEC, Tech Univ Berlin, Sony, Tadiran, Hitachi Maxell, Infinite Power Solutions, LGChem, Panasonic, Electrovaya, Renata, Sandia, A123 Systems and Duracell.
