In recent years, the world has become a big digital multimedia market with different kinds of content easily available in different media forms today. This has led to the need for continuous innovation in data transfer and connectivity. Whereas, WiGig allows wireless communication at multi-gigabit speeds and enables high-performance wireless data.
The Europe WiGig market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 107.07% to reach USD 3623.92 million by the end of 2021 from the current estimates of USD 45.97 million. Though the traditional wi-fi serves this purpose, its functionality, especially its speed, is limited by its capabilities. These limitations are now being addressed by WiGig technology, which uses 60 GHz frequency for high-speed data transfer. Such technologies have led to high-speed wireless data sharing at multi-gigabit speeds. It is based on IEEE 802.11ad, the standard wireless communication which makes use of 60 GHz frequency. This technology supports data transfer up to speeds of 7 Gbits/sec. The WiGig technology can be used to transfer data from smartphones, notebooks, personal computers or any other device (WiGig compatible) to other devices. It can also be used to transfer videos from these very devices.
To overcome signal decay, WiGig uses a process called ‘adaptive beamforming’. The antennas do this by adjusting both the amplitudes and the phase shifts of their broadcasted waves. The reception of the signal is then optimized by minimizing different kinds of problems like the error between the antennas’ output and the expected signal.
Recently, Samsung developed a “high-performance modem technologies” along with a “wide-coverage beam-forming antenna”, which could resolve the line-of-sight (range) issues to an extent. This means that one of the largest consumer device makers will be embracing WiGig. The company also remarked that this tech will be “integral” to Samsung’s smart home and internet of things efforts.
The Europe WiGig market has been broadly segmented by devices, usage models and end-user industry. By different types of devices, the market has been bifurcated into notebooks, personal computers, smartphones, televisions and others. Whereas, instant wireless sync, wireless display, wireless docking and networking are the different usage models in the WiGig market. By end-user industry, the market has been segmented into retail, banking, manufacturing, communications, travel and transport, professional services, energy, healthcare, government, entertainment and media and others.
The market has also been geographically segmented into different countries such as the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy and others.
Some of the vendors of this technology mentioned in the report are Qualcomm, Cisco, Intel, Dell, Panasonic, Bridgewave, Silicon Image and Agilent Technologies.
Evolution of next generation devices along with the increasing need for high-speed internet, need for high data transfer rate, lower cost and compatibility with different devices has accelerated the growth of the market.
Some of the key impediments hindering the growth of the market are the range which it supports, i.e. natural interference problems, so the data transfer would require the devices to be close by and in line-of-sight of each other, and the other limitation of the WiGig market is its low availability of vendors for the same.
