The rapid adoption of Electric Vehicles (EVs) globally due to low fuel consumption and performance benefits is driving the wireless charging market demand. Technical standards are maturing and consolidating, ensuring compatibility among all transmitters, portable devices, and chargers.

The market has been gaining traction over the last few years as several automotive market players are implementing the technology. Global automotive OEMs are placing a high focus on providing a hassle-free charging user-experience.

Use of inductive technology for low-power charging applications is propelling the market growth

In 2019, inductive charging technology accounted for over 45% of the wireless charging market share and is anticipated to maintain its dominance during the forecast timeline. The technology is basically used in low-power applications, such as handheld devices, smartphones, smartwatches, ear pods, and bands, which require charging levels below 100 watts.

With the technology, the end-use can place the device to be charged on a conductive pad/equipment, which is directly connected to a wall socket.

The technology is being increasingly adopted and implemented in healthcare & medical applications. These chargers serve as an alternative to the conventional wired charging machines and eliminate the transfer of bacteria and other impurities during the charging process. In the healthcare industry, the growing market demand for the technology in sterile environments, such as healthcare units and laboratories, is increasingly witnessed.

Moreover, Industry 4.0 trend and the automation of production, packaging, and assembly systems in industrial settings are driving the deployment of wireless charging. The technology reduces the risk of explosions caused by stray sparks, that occur during the disconnection and connection of power cables. The other market segments by technology type include resonant and RF.
