Demand for Additional Backhaul Capacity Drives the Millimeter Wave Equipment Market, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) July 22, 2013

Follow us on LinkedIn – Millimeter waves (Mm-wave) are a part of the electromagnetic spectrum falling in the frequency range of 30GHz – 300GHz. Initially deployed for defense and research based applications, Mm-wave technology today finds use in a range of applications including automotive radars, airport scanners and surveillance systems, weather forecasting applications, radio broadcasting, cell phone transmissions, and telecommunication links. The main feature of Mm-wave technology is its unique resolution. The short wavelength along with significant bandwidth and transmission features of mm-waves enables use of small-sized antennas which is critical in dense urban deployments. In the coming years, Mm-waves are poised to gain momentum largely due to factors such as technological advancements and the exploding growth in media technology coupled with consumer inclination towards high-bandwidth connectivity.

Mobile backhaul is expected to be the major growth driver for millimeter wave equipment. The market is expected to witness a surge in demand with increase in deployment of high capacity mobile backhaul solutions in metros along with high cell density following the deployment of 4G network. As more consumers shift to smartphones and explore applications such as social networking, mobile enterprise, and entertainment, the need for additional network capacity and speed is on the rise. Also, increasing volumes of high-definition content, VOD and other personalized video services, and growth in data volumes being transmitted through communication networks is pushing demand for greater bandwidth. Conventional networks are being strained to address the growing requirements of network enablers and users. With the mobile industry exploring heterogeneous wireless networks, Millimeter waves, due to high frequency characteristics are evolving as an ideal solution for small cell backhaul problems. The evolution of next generation 4G/LTE networks and the growing need for backhaul solutions that offer lowest TCO to carriers, at the same time high scalability to address the exploding data traffic offers a strong business case for millimeter wave (Mm-wave) equipment.

With X-ray security scanners facing a lot of flak from regulatory authorities raising doubts about the scanners’ performance and effect when exposed to human skin, millimeter wave technology is gaining ground in scanning devices. Further, given its unique benefits, research is underway to deploy millimeter wave technology for non-destructive inspection in addition to food inspection and security measures. Also, Mm-wave radars that find extensive use in automotive safety devices in luxury vehicles are gradually penetrating the middle tier vehicle segment.

As stated by the new market research report on Millimeter Wave Equipment, the United States represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific represents the fastest growing market with a robust CAGR of 67% over the analysis period. China and India are forecast to fuel demand for rich Internet media services, which require improved back haul transmission links, thereby increasing the requirement of millimeter wave technology.

Sunny Days for Solar Power Business as Government Incentives Will Support Income Growth as Demand Heats Up

IBISWorld Market place Analysis

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 23, 2011

The Solar Energy business in the United States is set to develop a wholesome glow more than the next 5 years, according to IBISWorld, the nation’s largest publisher of market analysis. In that time, favorable government legislation is projected to continue to make solar energy cost-competitive with other energy generation sources. Also, via 2016, increased solar panel production will lead to lower panel costs, which will drive growth as the cost of the industry’s principal input declines. As a result of these trends, market income is forecast to rise at an typical annual rate of 11.4% and total $ 145.9 million through 2016.

According to IBISWorld’s latest statistics, general economic circumstances are anticipated to strengthen as consumer income increases and companies invest far more. As these trends prevail, growth in electricity demand is anticipated to follow. Demand for solar power will rise in tandem with electricity demand as firms seek to diversify power sources and “green” electricity becomes much more of a focus for the United States. Nevertheless, despite expected favorable government incentives over the subsequent five years, government legislation beyond 2012 will depend on the makeup of congress and the newly elected president. This will moderately limit revenue growth.

The Solar Power market has skilled bright days over the five years to 2011. Generous government incentives have pushed income growth by delivering tax credits for investing in solar power and by enacting renewable portfolio standards (RPSs). These standards, enacted in 29 states, need nearby utilities to create electricity from renewable energy as a percentage of their total power portfolio. Increased interest in green technology also influenced market efficiency by sparking interest in technologies that displace other sorts of power generation sources, such as coal and gas.

Favorable government assistance and nearby-government regulation regarding renewable energy has led to big growth in US solar power business projects benefiting organizations like, NextEra Power Inc., MEMC Electronic Supplies and Abengoa Solar. The boost reflects a high level of assistance for the industry, which typically has a hard time competing against traditional power-generation commodities, such as all-natural gas and oil. The assistance, supplied in the form of federal tax credits and RPSs, has pushed solar-electricity generation greater. In addition, as the global recession began, a glut in the international supply of silicon occurred, and Chinese solar panel and module manufacturers could not sell their merchandise at prerecession rates. As such, solar power producers acquired panels at less expensive rates. In turn, they experienced higher profit margins and undertook projects that were otherwise not profitable.

According to IBISWorld analyst, Justin Molavi, Government assistance is expected to continue to support market players in the US Solar Power market compete with other energy generation technologies by lowering the cost of solar projects. State mandates for renewable-power energy will continue to translate into greater industry income. Moreover, firming US economic growth during the next five years will contribute to much more robust demand conditions for electricity generators. As buyers have far more income and organizations invest more, demand for electricity will continue to boost. As a result, market firms are expected to benefit from the continued push into renewable-power generation, which will lead to elevated solar-power output. Given these circumstances, industry revenue is projected to grow an average of 11.four% per year over the next 5 years and total $ 145.9 million in 2016.
