Vibration Energy Harvesting Systems Market By Product (Linear Systems, Nonlinear Systems, Rotational Systems), By Application (Consumer Electronics, Building & Home Automation, Industrial, Transportation, Security) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

The Market for Vibration Energy Harvesting Systems will be stimulated by the replacement of battery-powered sensors with autonomous energy-harvesting wireless sensors.

The vibration energy harvesting systems market reached a market value of US$ 398.68 million in 2017, with a promising CAGR from 2018 to 2026. Essentially directed by North America, the market for vibration energy harvesting systems is majorly driven by its penetration across electronic systems. The rising adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) applications in industrial as well as consumer electronics aims to enhance the smartness of such devices. Numerous sensors are required to make IoT processes work, and such sensors need continuous power supplies for functionality without breakage. Typically, batteries are used to power the sensing equipment, although they possess a limited lifetime and a complex system structure due to the thousands of wireless devices; thus, significant efforts are required to replace the batteries. On the other hand, energy-harvesting-powered sensors are autonomous and require less maintenance, enabling easier installation than conventional batteries. Furthermore, vibration energy harvesting systems are more relevant in remote or hostile environments for complex and expensive battery changes. Currently, vibration energy harvesting applications are limited due to their low conversion efficiency (around 5%) and low power storage capacities; however, with continuous technological advancements aiming for its penetration across several applications, the market is expected to witness promising growth throughout the forecast period.

Market Synopsis

Consumer Electronics Segment to Cement the Dominating Position in the Vibration Harvesting Systems Market

The consumer electronics segment accounted for the lion's share of the total market value generated for vibration energy harvesting systems worldwide. Electronic hardware circuitries have become cheaper and smaller, making wireless communication more competent. This stimulated technologies such as wireless sensor networks (WSN) or the Internet of Things (IoT) to play a vital role in real-time applications. Many of these devices are embedded and need continuous running, making it inefficient to use the connected power grids as it would require proper maintenance. Vibration energy harvesting systems for small-scale electronics are used in portable forms. In the case of low-power applications such as nodes in WSN, we could not only decrease the reliance on conventional batteries but even replace them. Vibration energy harvesting has key economic and technological impacts as it facilitates the swift spread of IoT applications by providing them with an autonomous power supply and by reducing the installation and maintenance costs pertaining to conventional batteries. Therefore, vibration energy harvesting is enabling the development of technologies that would have been uneconomical without it. The penetration of such energy harvesting systems in consumer electronics is expected to grow at a rapid rate across the forecast period.

Although the market value of vibration energy harvesting in healthcare appears marginal, it is expected to grow at a higher CAGR compared to other applications. Vibration energy harvesting technologies present valuable social benefits when applied to the healthcare sector. Several organizations are currently working on creating an automated pacemaker that will convert kinetic energy from the beating of the human heart into electrical energy. The device would enable a self-charging mechanism by using the body's vibration.
