Home Area Networks

NEW YORK, Sept. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Home Area Networks http://www.reportlinker.com/p0960353/Home-Area-Networks.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Wireless_Technology Networked Home Energy Management Devices and In-Home Displays Utilizing ZigBee, PLC, HomePlug, and Wi-Fi Connectivity: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts Home area networks (HANs) are localized systems of hardware and software that enable enhanced energy management to take place inside dwellings. A HAN allows consumers to access consumption information that, when acted upon, can result in reduced use of energy and lower costs. The HAN is seen as one of the last zones of technologies that complete the modern smart grid as envisioned by utilities and technology developers. The HAN leverages consumption information provided by smart meters, which deliver frequent and granular data and power quality measurements to HAN devices that can take advantage of the information - often resulting in both energy and cost savings for the consumer.

Despite the benefits of HANs, adoption has been slowed by a number of factors, including consumer indifference, the cost of new equipment, and evolving technology standards. Utilities themselves have taken a relatively slow approach to HANs, as they have concentrated initial efforts on the deployment of smart meters. A few utilities in North America have started to promote HANs as they move beyond trials and attempt to reduce overall consumption through demand response (DR) programs. In Europe, HAN adoption has been sluggish in this early phase as well, with the exception of the United Kingdom, where regulatory mandates require basic HAN gear to be part of new smart meter deployments.

This Pike Research report examines the global market opportunity for HANs, exploring the drivers and inhibitors that are shaping the market along with major technology issues. The study also provides market forecasts through 2020 for HAN device shipments and associated revenue. Key vendor profiles, analysis of new market players, and case studies are included as well.


Key Questions Addressed: What are the major forces shaping the HAN market How many HAN systems will be deployed through 2020 How large is the revenue opportunity for the HAN market What technology issues are shaping this market Who are the major players in the home energy management space Which global regions will provide the most opportunities for home energy management vendors Who needs this report Utilities Home area network vendors Home automation system vendors Home security vendors Consumer electronics companies Broadband and telecom service providers Networking equipment providers Industry associations Government agencies Investor community Table of Contents 1.
