Introduction & Scope

INTRODUCTION
This report is an update of EGY097A, published in 2012. Energy harvesting (EH) is a process that captures small amounts of energy from ambient energy sources (e.g., solar power, thermal, wind, and mechanical),
accumulating them and storing them for later use. Energy harvesting for the purposes of this report is restricted to non-grid-connected applications and excludes power plants that use sources such as solar, wind, and hydroelectric sources. Energy harvesters are interesting examples of a fledgling yet sophisticated manifestation of methodologies governed by well-established and understood technologies. The average age of technologies governing energy-conversion methodologies covered in this report is in the range of a hundred years! However, energy harvesting as a term has gathered currency only in the last decade. Even as defined for this report, energy harvesting leaves the field wide open for a plethora of use cases. Although energy-conversion principles are sound and clear, their application has remained restricted to limited domains in the industry and in the space of 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.
- Classify the market size for energy harvesters by end application in terms of dollar and unit sales.
- Classify the market size for energy harvesters by geographical regions in terms of dollar and unit sales.
- Highlight the roles played by major stakeholders and players.
- Provide an overview of the activities of influential companies.
- Examine crucial, innovative breakthroughs by means of a detailed patent analysis.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
The reasons for the update are consistent with those of the original report. Though still new, energy harvesting is poised for high double-digit growth over the next five years. 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 nonconventional materials in mainstream semiconductor fabrication technologies. The last three years
have, to an extent, crystallized the shape of the limitless possibilities created by energy harvesters, whereby every naturally occurring, energy-generating source has the potential to be used in numerous applications. There has been a considerable increase in the innovative activity associated with energy harvesters. 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 wire-line communication, materials, nanotechnology, and regulation. The report examines the energy harvesting market with respect to the following key
parameters:
- Principal energy sources.
- End applications.
- Regional dynamics.
- Changes in average selling prices (ASPs).
The report presents an overview of the interplay between application categories and energy sources as well as between application categories and regions. It places one in the context of the other.

SCOPE OF THE REPORT
This report presents the forecasts for energy harvesters for 2015 through 2020 on a volume and value basis. Sales values in terms of dollar sales are presented in U.S. dollars, while sales values in terms of unit sales 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 billions in the future. Energy harvesters will also power several other device categories that will not be as prolific in number as wireless nodes, but that will experience tremendous growth as well.

The forecasts are further broken down by energy source, end application, and region.
The report covers the following energy sources:
- Solar and photovoltaic.
- Thermal.
- Vibration, displacement, and mechanical (including biomechanical and electrostatic)—also occasionally referred to simply as mechanical.
- Radiation and electromagnetic.
- Chemical.
The breakdown of end-use applications includes:
- Telecommunications.
- Building, construction, and home automation.
- Energy exploration, generation, and distribution.
- Environment and agriculture.
- Industrial and automotive.
- Defense.
- Retail and logistics.
- Medical.
The regional breakdown focuses on the following regions:
- The Americas.
- Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA).
- Asia-Pacific (APAC).
The “Executive Summary” chapter provides the regional breakdown of the dollar sales of energy harvesters. The “Fundamentals of Energy Harvesting” chapter introduces energy harvesting and its definition, history, drivers, and challenges. It also provides an overview of the larger market and breaks it down by the key characteristics of principal energy sources and application categories.

The “Global Energy Harvesting Market: Breakdown by Energy Source and Application” chapter provides an in-depth picture of the energy harvester business opportunities. The market in terms of dollar and unit sales for energy harvesters is broken down by energy sources and then by application categories. The market for individual energy sources in turn is broken down by end-application categories. The market for individual application categories is then broken down by energy sources and regions. The “Major Participants in the Energy Harvesting Industry” chapter identifies the major categories of stakeholders involved in the development and commercialization of energy harvester technology. The “U.S. Patent Analysis” chapter covers innovations that impact energy harvesters. Patents are categorized in terms of energy sources and
areas of value, as well on the basis of allocation by year, assignee countries, and assignee organizations.
