Wireless charging is mainly relevant to smartphones and other similar portable electronics at present. However, a new analysis indicates that its market will benefit more and more from its application to electric vehicles. This may drive its value up to as much as US$71.21 billion by 2025.

Wireless charging is already prominent in the smartphone industry, where most examples of premium devices produced within it (at least) are expected to feature this spec as added value. However, a new market research report on this subject suggests that the market for this technology might in fact be driven at least as much by (of all things) cars in the future.

Indeed, it is increasingly feasible that electric vehicles may charge off enlarged wireless pads rather than cables in the next few years. This may help the market for the power-delivery types in question (which are defined here as the radio frequency (RF), inductive, resonant, laser and microwave modalities) grow from a worth of $5.22 billion in 2017 until it attains as much as $71.21 billion by 2025.

Given that it has included RF, the new report also seems to incorporate truly wireless charging, which does not even need stations or pads to work. It projects that the wireless charging market may also benefit from applications in PCs, internet of things (IoT) and wearables.

The major companies that may deliver the technology in question are likely to include Energizer Holdings, Integrated Device Technology, Murata, Qualcomm, Samsung, Texas Instruments, Powermat Technologies, WiTricity and Sony.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
