Bluetooth Smart – Market Size and Dynamics
Market research analysts at Beige Market Intelligence, forecast the Worldwide Bluetooth Smart market to grow at a CAGR of around 28% during the forecast period. The growth in connectivity technologies such as Bluetooth is primarily driven by an increasing consumer appetite for accessing content without any barriers. This demand for embedded connectivity technologies that can enable interaction between various consumer electronic devices is not only promoting sophistication in electronic and semiconductor manufacturing but also is enabling advancement of efficient technology standards. One such standard that has gained immense prominence is Bluetooth smart on account of it being more energy-efficient than competing interfaces and networking solutions such as Bluetooth, Ethernet and Wi-fi. With the need for constant interaction between devices becoming inevitable, easily-implementable connectivity technologies such as Bluetooth smart are becoming indispensable on account of the extensive ecosystem and ubiquity of Bluetooth technology standard.
Worldwide Bluetooth Smart market can be segmented based on the type of application as consumer electronics, home automation, healthcare, retail, wearables, automotive, industrial automation and others. The consumer electronic segment was valued at around US$485 million in 2015 and is expected to reach over US$2420 million by 2021. The healthcare Bluetooth smart market, which covers devices like hearing aids, blood pressure monitors, glucose monitors, smart drug delivery devices and thermometers etc., is expected to grow at a lower rate, as the market has already been growing for many years. Continuous glucose monitors are a significant segment in healthcare sector owing to the growing prevalence of diabetes in the emerging economies of Latin America and Asia Pacific. The Bluetooth smart market in retail especially for beacons is still in the early stages of development owing to factors like tepid consumer interest and lower adoption leading to experimental retail implementations, even though Apple launched iBeacons two years ago. The retail segment of Worldwide Bluetooth smart market is expected to reach over US$80 million by 2021.
The report also provides the Porter’s five forces analysis along with a description of each of the forces and its impact on the market.
Bluetooth Smart – Geographic Analysis
The APAC region is expected to exhibit the fastest growth, during the forecast period between 2016 and 2021 due to rapid penetration of BLE-enabled smartphones and personal computing products in the countries like China, Japan, India and South Korea. On account of stable and growth-focused regulatory regimes in key geographies of India, China, Japan, Singapore and South Korea, the region is undergoing a rapid infrastructural change, particularly in the realms of connectivity, manufacturing and security. Rapid expansion in mobile connectivity, federal spending on public security systems and the rise of cheaper electronic manufacturing hubs coupled with rapidly growing disposable incomes and a low consumer durable ownership rate mean huge growth opportunity for connectivity technologies such as Bluetooth smart. APAC is expected to remain the leading consumption market for Bluetooth smart modules with the region’s share expected to rise up to 55.3% by 2021.
Further, North America is expected to gain prominence as the second largest consumption market with a share of over 21% by 2021 on account of a well-developed internet ecosystem coupled with a sharp rise in the launch of innovative technological offerings and device ownership turnover. The region is expected to grow at a significant growth rate of around 30% during the forecast period. The Increase in the number of shipments of Bluetooth Smart and Smart Ready-enabled devices in this region can be primarily attributed to Consumer Electronics, followed by Home automation and wearables in both fitness and healthcare.
The Bluetooth Smart market in EMEA is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of around 24% during the forecast period. Within Europe, significant adoption of Internet of Everything (IoE) in this region across business sectors like agriculture, healthcare, retail, transportation, manufacturing, sports & entertainment, education etc. is contributing primarily to the market growth. Consumer Healthcare segment showed fastest growth due to increased number of machine2machine (M2M) connections and is increasingly becoming digitized deploying sophisticated IT systems in hospitals. The increase in uptake of wireless technology in healthcare is due to low cost and power efficient without comprising on patient safety and service quality.
The Bluetooth Smart market witnessed relatively slower growth in MEA compared to Europe as many parts of the Middle East and Africa (MEA) suffered setbacks in the past year as escalating violence, political instability, civil unrest and medical crises afflicted the region.
