Wireless Power

Mobile Devices, Consumer Electronics, Industrial Devices, Wireless Power Infrastructure, and Wireless Charging of Electric Vehicles: Technology Analysis, Environmental Impact, and Market Forecasts

Wireless power is beginning to see wider acceptance and will become an increasingly ubiquitous form of charging for a number of applications. The integration of wireless power technology into mobile and consumer electronics devices is already taking shape through standardization on a worldwide scale. The technology is enabling plug-free and, in many cases, contactless charging for a wide range of devices and machinery – from military and medical devices to electric vehicles (EVs) to unmanned aircraft. Originating with simple inductive charging mechanisms that require a direct point of contact between charger (transmitter) and device (receiver), these systems have evolved to the point of providing an intelligence that will see devices becoming connected to the wider power infrastructure.

The barriers to adoption are lifting and evidence is building that wireless power technology can be an environmentally friendly technology and that, before the end of the decade, it could contribute to a significant reduction in carbon emissions and embedded energy used to produce, ship, and dispose of conventional charging equipment. The technology has matured and the industry is beginning to consolidate; a wide range of applications exist, clear leaders are emerging; and, in terms of technology, a value chain has formed from silicon vendors to technology ODMs to OEMs combining to establish standards for interoperability going forward.
