REPORT SCOPE

INTRODUCTION

Energy harvesters are interesting examples of nascent yet sophisticated technologies based on well-established scientific theories. The average age of the scientific theories underlying the energy conversion technologies covered in this report is in the range of a hundred years. Some energy harvesters, such as photovoltaic (PV) harvesters, are a mature, well-established technology; however, many new harvesting technologies have only been designed in the last five to 10 years.

As is explained later in the report, energy harvesting in the present day context relates to the tapping of existing ambient energy sources for use in power generation in non-grid applications and devices.

Energy harvesting leaves the field open for a wide range of uses. While the scientific bases of energy conversion principles are indisputable and have been well understood for decades, their application remained restricted to limited domains in industry and heavy engineering.

This report is an effort to examine the technological and business motivations behind the new interest in the seemingly limitless number of energy harvesting applications and their market opportunities.

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

This study’s goals and objectives include the following:
- Forecast the market size for energy harvesters in terms of dollar and unit sales.
- Classify the market size for energy harvesters by key classification criteria in terms of dollar and unit sales.
- Classify the market size for energy harvesters by energy source in terms of dollar and unit sales.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

Energy harvesting is a nascent industry underpinned by some relatively old technologies. It presents opportunities that are unique in their diversity and marketability. However, the key driver for the proliferation of energy harvesters is the use of non-conventional materials in mainstream semiconductor fabrication technologies. This has created limitless possibilities where every naturally-occurring energy generating source could be potentially be used in numerous applications. The looming energy crisis and the global emphasis on the exploration of renewable energy sources have lent a sense of urgency to the development of the market.

This report examines the many factors shaping the energy harvesting market and attempts to present a snapshot of the end result of their mutual interaction in the shape of qualitative and quantitative analysis of the present day market. It then attempts to forecast how the market is likely to develop in the next five years.

In addition to the attractiveness of the energy harvesting market itself, there are more important reasons for exploring this subject. Energy harvesting finds application in many industries and disciplines such as energy management, instrumentation, wireless and wireline communication, materials, nanotechnology and regulation.

The report examines the energy harvesting market under the following key parameters:
- Principal energy sources.
- End applications.
- Regional dynamics.
- Key markets within countries.
- Changes in average selling prices (ASPs).

The report presents an overview of the interplay between end-use markets and energy sources as well as between end-use markets and geographical regions. It places one in the context of the other.

SCOPE OF THE REPORT

This report presents the forecasts for energy harvesters for 2012 through 2017 on a volume and value basis.

Sales values are presented in U.S. dollars, while shipment volumes are presented in thousand units. The choice of thousands as a denomination unit was dictated by the shipment volumes for specific categories, which would have otherwise appeared too insignificant. It is important to note that energy harvesters can power wireless sensor nodes, which will ship by the billion in the future. Energy harvesters will also power several other device categories that will not be as prolific in number as wireless nodes, but will experience tremendous growth as well.

These forecasts are further broken down by energy source, end application and geographical region.
