Power Line Communication Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2018 - 2028
Power line communication (PLC) is one of the popular communication technologies that enables data transmission through a conductor already used for AC electric power transmission or distribution to the consumers. PLC technology is widely used for various applications including home automation, transmitting radio programs, automatic meter reading, transmission line protection, and others. It also enables in-vehicle network communication of various signals such as music, voice, and video by digital means over a DC battery power line. Moreover, power line communication has been mainly adopted as the most economical and reliable method for communication in a medium and over long distance in a power system. Increasing use of such technologies, especially for smart grid communications, has led to the development of power line communication market.

Power Line Communication Market Dynamics
Market Gains Underpinned by Growing PLC Application in Home Automation and Smart Grid
In home automation, electric power wirings in the house are used as communication medium for alarm systems, remote controlling of lighting, sensors, appliances, and others. Increasing adoption of smart homes, especially in developed cities, has led to a surge in the demand for power line communication which generally enables exchange of data over existing power cables. Growth of the power line communication market can also be attributed to rising application of PLC technology in smart grid communication which allows bi-directional data communication and includes a range of operations and energy solutions such as smart appliances, smart meters, and others. Moreover, such technology integrates with broadband, direct current (DC), and alternating current (AC), and gains further application in radio transmission, internet access, home networking, and others. This, in turn, is likely to contribute to the revenue generation of power line communication market.
Power Line Communication Demand Surges as it Reduces Need for Additional Communication Paths
As the power line communication utilizes existing cables, it eliminates the requirement of additional line of communication, which helps lower the installation costs as compared to other systems. Surge in the use of power line technology for in-house as well as last mile applications in wide range of industries will continue to complement the future expansion of the market. However, electric noise generation in various wiring network tend to affect the performance of power line communication technology which may create a hindrance in the market growth. In addition, government restrictions on frequency bands along with several standards for the use of power line communication may limit its large scale adoption.
