The Markets for Smart Lighting Drivers, Controllers and Sensor Chips - 2014

NEW YORK, Aug. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

The Markets for Smart Lighting Drivers, Controllers and Sensor Chips – 2014

http://www.reportlinker.com/p02263537/The-Markets-for-Smart-Lighting-Drivers-Controllers-and-Sensor-Chips-–-2014.html

SUMMARY
This report analyzes the market for LED drivers, MCUs, sensors and other chips used in smart lighting. It is the latest in NanoMarkets ongoing series of reports on smart lighting, which covers both the lighting itself and important components and chips used in smart lighting systems. In this report we explicitly discuss smart lighting components in the context of the emerging Internet-of-Things.

The report focuses on analysis for the chips that will be used in the newer kinds of smart lighting -- color tuning (mood lighting) and visible light communications (VLC) -- as well as more traditional smart lighting aimed primarily at increasing lighting efficiency. Coverage includes innovative devices such as intelligent LED drivers with embedded sensors and the latest wireless standards for smart lighting such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).

In addition, the report also covers the needs of all the major end-user segments of the market. We take these to be commercial and industrial, residential, government and public buildings. We have also discussed the available markets for smart lighting in transportation and outdoor lighting. Detailed eight-year market projections of seven major smart lighting chip types in both revenue and volume terms are presented. Additional breakouts are provided by (1) the part of the lighting system in which the chips are used and (2) the technology generation of the system itself and (3) the type of building, vehicle or location in which the smart lighting systems will be used.

The report is designed for semiconductor industry executives that want to better understand the opportunities in smart lighting electronics. It is also intended to provide guidance to firms in the LED and smart lighting systems sectors who need to better understand where smart-lighting electronics trends will take their businesses.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
