Growth in industrialization and infrastructure spending is expected to have a direct impact on the global energy harvesting market over the forecast period. Energy harvesting is a procedure where unused and naturally formed energy is utilized to produce energy using various advanced technologies. Growing demand for energy in major end-use industries is expected to drive the overall energy harvesting market. Various energy harvesting techniques include light, thermoelectric, electromagnetic, vibration, and fluid energy harvesting. Light energy harvesting was the most popular method of energy harvesting in 2013 and is also expected to the most dominant type over the forecast period. The obvious fact of the easy availability of solar energy is directly beneficial for this energy harvesting market. The high penetration market in terms of end-use applications is expected to drive the market over the forecast period. The shift in the trend of consumer preference for energy-saving technologies is expected to have a direct influence on increasing demand for energy harvesting. Energy harvesting requires a high initial set up cost which may emerge as a major concern for the manufacturers before entering the business. Lack of awareness spread about energy harvesting is expected to hinder the market growth over the next six years. However, the emergence of innovative energy harvesting technologies such as ocean energy harvesting is expected to widen the opportunities for energy harvesting producers.
Europe was the largest regional energy harvesting market owing to the strong presence of environmental regulatory bodies. Favorable governmental support is also expected to drive the regional market over the forecast period. North America and Asia Pacific are expected to witness significant growth over the next six years. Various regulatory norms and R&D investments of the U.S. government, Dept. of Energy (DOE), and European associations are expected to have a positive influence on the overall energy harvesting market.
