NEW YORK, Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Power Line Communication (PLC) Systems Market (By Technologies-Narrowband & Broadband, Products-Transmission & Distribution, Applications-Smart Grid, Home Networking, Long Haul & M2M, Voltage Network-High, Medium & Low, Verticals-Industrial, Residential &http://www.reportlinker.com/p01075897/Power-Line-Communication-PLC-Systems-Market-By-Technologies-Narrowband--Broadband-Products-Transmission--Distribution-Applications-Smart-Grid-Home-Networking-Long-Haul--M2M-Voltage-Network-High-Medium--Low-Verticals-Industrial-Residential-.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Electronic_Component_and_Semiconductor

Power line communication (PLC) is a technology that enables sending communication data over electric power cables. Power line communication is used at different frequency bands depending on signal transmission characteristics of the power wiring and the application for which it is being used. PLC's areas of application are across voltage ranges in both - power transmission and distribution. In this regard, the utilities are favoring implementation of the PLC systems in their substation automation projects. In addition to this, the medium and low voltages area of application is seeing an uptrend with respect to adoption of PLC solution as cost-effective and, in turn, favorable. Typical application in medium voltage range is smart grid and in low voltage is home automation and networking. PLC has its advantages and disadvantages in the different environments it is used in, but the fact that it does not require any external wiring infrastructure keeps pushing it to the forefront.

Apart from these applications in smart grids, home networking, and M2M communications in the Neighborhood area network (NAN) and Home area network (HAN), PLC also has a few niche long-haul applications in areas like irrigation, internal automobile communication, railroad and transport applications, etc.

PLC is broadly classified into two types by available technologies:

Narrowband PLCBroadband PLCNarrowband PLC typically allows low data transfer rates and works at lower frequencies and has a longer range. Broadband PLC allows high speed data transfer, works at higher frequency ranges, and has low range.

Narrowband PLC has garnered a lot of attention off late due to its use in applications pertaining to the smart grid. Some of its major applications include Automated Meter Reading (AMR), street light control, electric-vehicle charging, etc. Broadband PLC has found its use as a "last mile" technology in applications like Internet access and home networking and control.

Narrowband-PLC is expected to witness a faster growth rate and has great potential with respect to smart grid and M2M applications. Narrowband PLC with its simple, reliable, and highly cost-effective solutions provide a perfect medium for two-way communications across the grid. Thus, PLC is in the initial growing phases in the smart grid application. In the other applications, PLC is at the introduction stage or has just started growing.

The global PLC revenue market is expected to grow from $2.94 billion in 2013 to $7.10 billion in 2018 at a CAGR of 19.3%. In terms of revenue, the broadband market is larger than the narrowband market with a split of 60-40 favoring broadband in 2012. This is mainly because B-PLC is a high revenue market while N-PLC is a high volume market. The global PLC unit shipment market is expected to grow from 38.90 million units in 2013 to 417.16 million units in 2018 at a CAGR of 60.7%. The market for N-PLC shipments is larger than that of B-PLC. The reason behind this is that the average selling price (ASP) of a narrowband PLC system is lesser than that of a B-PLC system.

Some of narrowband players are Cypress Semiconductor Corporation (U.S.), Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (U.S.), Echelon Corporation (U.S.), STMicroelectronics N.V (Switzerland), etc. Companies involved in this space include Qualcomm-Atheros (U.S.), Sigma Designs, Inc. (U.S.), Marvell Technology Group Ltd. (Bermuda), Broadcom Corp. (U.S.), etc.

PENETRATION OF PLC IN MAJOR APPLICATION MARKETS

Source: MarketsandMarkets Analysis The figure above shows the penetration of PLC into various applications sectors. The penetration of PLC in this section refers to the percentage of PLC revenue of a particular application out of the Total Available Market (TAM) for wired communications in that application. The figure shows the current penetration (2012) of PLC and the penetration five years down the line (2018). From the figure, it is clear that the smart grid applications will drive the PLC market in the next five years with its penetration almost doubling. In-door networking penetration is expected to increase from 2012 in 2018. This is due to the fact that B-PLC device ASPs (average selling price) are expected to decrease over the next five years and thus sales are expected to grow. This will also affect the M2M market whose PLC penetration is also expected to double its penetration in 2018.Scope of the report This research report categorizes the global PLC market based on technologies, applications, verticals and geographies; it also covers the forecasted revenue from 2012 to 2018 and future applications of PLC. It describes the deployments of PLC technology in various regions. The report describes the applications mapping of the PLC market with respect to the growth potential and adoption by the users.Technology: Narrowband & BroadbandApplications: Applications of the PLC System market are split into four major types, namely smart grid, indoor networking, long haul, and Machine to Machine (M2M). Each of the four applications is further divided into specific types such as utility and non utility.Verticals: The types of applications are termed as verticals and they are broadly classified as residential, commercial, and industrial. Each vertical is further segmented into related sub verticals.Geographies: Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and Rest of the World (ROW).TABLE OF CONTENTS 1 INTRODUCTION 24
