Global Li-Fi Market: Snapshot

Li-Fi, also called light fidelity is a technology that facilitates the transfer of wireless communication between devices by making the use of light to transmit data and position-based information. In its present state only LED lamps can be used for the transmission of visible light. However, extensive research and development of this technology has led to a distinct Li-Fi market to exist.

Li-Fi mainly is a visible light communications system, which is capable of transmitting data at high speeds over the visible light spectrum, along with ultraviolet and infrared radiations. From the perspective of its end use, the technology is very similar to Wi-Fi. The main difference involves the use of radio frequency in Wi-Fi communication top transmit data, whereas in Li-Fi, light waves are used for the same purpose. Li-Fi offers several advantages compared to Wi-Fi, especially when work is based in areas that are susceptible to electromagnetic interference. Many companies are developing this technology and bringing forth upgrades at intervals.

Visible light communications works by switching the current to the off and on actions associated with LEDs at a very high rate. This rate is at such a high speed that it cannot be noticed by the human eye. Although Li-Fi LEDs would have to be kept on to transmit data, they could be dimmed to a level below human visibility while still emitting enough light to carry data. Direct line of sight is not necessary for Li-Fi to transmit a signal.

The global Li-Fi market depicts the presence of a fairly competitive landscape thanks to the lucrative nature of the technology. With increasing number of players expected to occur in the next few years, the competition is anticipated to further intensify. Most players are focusing on regulating costs of their products, as well as improving the availability of their services in various geographies.

Global Li-Fi Market: Overview

The demand within the global market for Li-Fi has been expanding on account of the high speed wireless communication offered by this technology. Li-Fi, or Light Fidelity, uses light-emitting diodes to transfer data across large distances, and this technology is gradually gathering momentum across the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors. It is expected that the demand within the global market for Li-Fi would escalate alongside the growing need for data transmission across multiple industries. Li-Fi technology is different from Wi-Fi in the sense that the latter uses electro-magnetic waves for the transmission of data while the former uses light waves for the same purpose. The high-speed of Li-Fi is the prime reason behind its swift adoption across multiple sectors; nascent Li-Fi technologies are estimated to be 100 times faster than traditional Wi-Fi. The rate of operation for Li-Fi technology is low to moderate, and this technology is unidirectional. Furthermore, unlike other modes of data transmission, Li-Fi can function in the absence of line of sight between the receiver and the transmitter.

The global market for Li-Fi technology can be segmented based on the following parameters: component type, application, and region. It is important to understand each of these segments in order to delve into the global market for Li-Fi.

The report on the global market for Li-Fi portrays a range of forces that have been contributing towards the growth of the global market for L-Fi over the past decade. The need for better wireless transmission of data, expanding industrial bases, and other related factors have been considered while asserting the dynamics of the global market for Li-Fi.

Global Li-Fi Market: Trends and Opportunities

The ability of Li-Fi technology to transfer data at high speeds without external interferences and with a high bandwidth is the prime reason behind the growth of the global market for Li-Fi. The speed at which Li-Fi transfers data is comparable or even greater than the speed delivered by Wi-Fi access points. This is another key contributor to the growth of the global market for Li-Fi that has created lucrative opportunities for market players. It is projected that a substantial amount of internet traffic would come from videos over the coming years. As buffering of videos require high bandwidths and faster transmission speeds, the demand for Li-Fi is projected to escalate to new heights over the coming years.

Li-Fi technology has also gained popularity as it uses light waves instead of radio waves, and the former does not have any negative impacts on the health of humans. On the negative end, the low awareness levels of the masses about the uses of Li-Fi technology is expected to hamper the growth of the global market.

Global Li-Fi Market: Regional Outlook

The market for Li-Fi has been expanding at a robust rate in North America, primarily due to the growth of the telecommunications industry in the US and Canada. Furthermore, the benefits of Li-Fi technology are known to the common masses as well as the industrial heads who are willing to replace Wi-Fi systems with Li-Fi technologies. It is also expected that the market for Li-Fi in Europe and Asia Pacific would expand alongside the successful marketing strategies adopted by market players in these regions.
