Global outlook of the PoE chipset market

Technavio’s market research analysts predict the global PoE chipset market to grow steadily over the next four years and will post a CAGR of almost 10% by 2020. This industry research report identifies the growing demand for data centres to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the power over Ethernet or PoE chipset market in the coming years. The development of advanced technologies such as big data analytics and cloud-based services have resulted in the rise in demand for data centres, especially in the developed countries. The increasing demand for colocation facilities among SMEs also fuels the demand for data centres. Since network equipment such as Ethernet switches plays a vital role in the operation of data centres, data centre operators will increasingly adopt 10GbE (Gigabit Ethernet), and 40GbE Ethernet switches to meet the rise in business demands. This, in turn, will drive the demand for PoE chipsets, augmenting the market’s growth prospects.

According to this market research report, the implementation and adoption of optical fiber cables for communication will be one of the major trends that will gain traction in this market in the next four years. Features such as flexibility, being susceptible to electromagnetic interference, and increased reliability, when compared to copper cables, make optical fibers the ideal option for use in extreme environments such as underground ducts and overhead electricity lines. Fiber cables can also be implemented in extending network distances to up to 100 miles per link, which eliminates data deterioration over long distances when linked with copper cables. Moreover, fiber cables also offer additional security as they do not emit electromagnetic signals, making them difficult to tap.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

Characterized by the presence of a number of vendors, the global power over Ethernet or PoE chipset market appears to be highly fragmented. The market’s growth potential induces vendors to compete fiercely for a considerable share of the market and as a result, the competitive environment in the market is quite intense. Vendors in the market usually compete on the basis of several factors such as technology, price, distribution channel, and global brand presence. They focus on providing products at comparatively lower prices and also on establishing relationships with their customers to sustain market competition.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Flexcomm
  • Maxim Integrated Products
  • Microsemi
  • ON Semiconductor
  • Silicon Laboratories
  • STMicroelectronics

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the PoE chipset market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

This market study predicts, that in terms of geographical regions, the Americas will be the major revenue contributor to the market in the next four years. PoE chipsets have found significant applications in smart grids and the increased investments from the governments in this region towards the development of smart grids will be the major factor for the market’s growth. Moreover, the increased adoption of Ethernet switches due to the availability of a number of data centers that are being operated by certified safety professionals (CSPs), telecommunication service providers, enterprises, and government agencies and the availability of high-speed internet across all countries in the region will lead to the rising demand for PoE chipsets. Analysts estimate that this region will account for more than 46% of the total market shares by 2020.

Power over Ethernet (PoE) is one of the several standardized systems that passes electrical power as well as data on Ethernet cabling. It allows a single cable to provide data connection and electrical power to devices like wireless access points and IP cameras. Since PoE provides both data and power connections in one cable, it eliminates the need for a separate cable for each requirement. With the increasing number of internet users and the subsequent requirement for faster communication at minimal prices, the PoE chipsets are gaining huge prominence. Through the implementation of PoE chipsets in transferring data signals, the information can be successfully transferred over power cables. VoIP applications will account for a majority share of the total revenue generated by this market.
