Power Line Communication (PLC) Systems are required for the effective transmission of data from one point to another. Based on the type of data present, there are different types of power line communication systems, which would allow for effective data transmission. Need for the transmission of low speed data for control and monitoring can be met with narrow band power line communication systems. PLC systems are essential as there is an increase with in number of remote applications. Narrow band power line communication systems will be having a minimal loss of signal whilst still ensuring that the signal can be transmitted over long distances. Power required to power these systems however will be a lot higher than the standard systems which could serve to be a challenge for the market, however, this is something which will not have a large impact on the market as the advantages outweigh the challenges. The rising deployment of smart grids coupled with increasing demand for broadband power line communication devices in the indoor networking application has led the growth of the market. Substation communication and advanced metering among the key application areas of narrowband power line communication technology-based products. In 2016, Substation communication and advanced metering applications held a considerable revenue share in power line communication market. In terms of application, energy management and smart grid is projected to be dominant, however, micro inverter monitoring, vehicle communication and EV charging, and lighting control are among the other vistas of opportunities.
The key players operating in the market have been able to ensure that they have been able to tap into all possible applications in order to increase the applicability of the system. By the end of the forecast period, it is expected that the cost of the power line communication systems will drop considerably thereby making them feasible for short distance communication requirements as well. Increased R&D in the development of the technologies, companies are looking at power sources, which will not be as high as what is being utilized today for the systems.
The European region is the largest contributor to the market and will continue to be so till the end of the forecasted period. It is expected that APAC will overtake the European market.
