The need for greater mobility and user convenience are strong motivators for refining the wireless power transmission technology. The technology can widen its application scope with robust research and development (R&D) efforts and collaborations in inductive coupling.
"Companies have already started offering wireless charging systems with consumer electronics," said Technical Insights Research Analyst Jacek Debowski. "However, it can become a standard feature in smartphones or laptops only when it offers higher efficiency and power, electromagnetic interference compliance and flexibility in the positioning of the charged device."
Developers need to work closely with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to make wireless charging cost-effective, easy to integrate and standards based. Apart from increasing the number of wireless charging products, companies must ensure that the charging process is fast and convenient. Organizations are actively conducting R&D to provide more functionality for consumer gadgets at competitive price and form factors.
"The industry's goal is to raise awareness among customers about the benefits of wireless power and provide OEMs with a solution to implement such capabilities in their products in both a cost- and time-efficient way," said Debowski.
