Unmatched Accuracy in Contact Tracing Helps Overcome UWB’s Short Range Drawback
The ultra wideband chipset market is expected to reach a revenue of US$ 31 Mn by the end of 2030. However, many individuals have reported that the technology’s short range is a major drawback, which is emerging as a hurdle in its commercialization. Hence, companies in the ultra wideband chipset market are increasing awareness about using devices in the same room to overcome short-range challenges. Advantages such as accurate context aware information and indoor location & positioning tend to offset UWB’s disadvantages.
UWB is gaining popularity for providing precise analytics in real time. However, UWB is being compared to Bluetooth, geofencing, and NFC (near field communication). Although these wireless technologies have their advantages, unique advantages of UWB such as unmatched accuracy in contact tracing and low power radio protocol are bolstering market growth.
Popular 4z Standard Facilitates Highly Secure Mobile, Financial, and Access Transactions
Next-gen UWB chipsets are drawing the roadmap for mobile transaction security. Decawave— a developer of UWB-based semiconductor solutions, is gaining increased recognition for introducing its new chipsets that comply with the new IEEE 802.15.4z (4z) standard for power reduction in automotive and mobile applications. Companies in the ultra wideband chipset market are increasing the availability of products that support the 8 GHz band (Channel 9) standard, thus enabling worldwide operation.
The growing need for high precision and high security in location awareness is acting as a key driver for the ultra wideband chipset market. The popular 4z standard is facilitating highly secure mobile, financial, and access transactions. With the help of precise location services, users can avoid risks of malicious attacks, while conducting wireless payments.

Ultra Wideband Chipset Market: Overview
- According to Transparency Market Research’s latest research report on the global ultra wideband chipset market for the historical period 2018–2019 and the forecast period 2020–2030, the adoption of new technologies such as RTLS (real-time location system) of ultra wideband chipsets to track or locate people or objects within confined areas such as shopping malls, hospitals, and airports is expected to boost the global ultra wideband (UWB) chipset market during the forecast period
- Ultra wideband chipsets broadcast digital pulses, which are precisely timed at number of frequency channels. UWB chipsets are used in various applications such as wireless printing, next-generation Bluetooth, peer-to-peer connections, and wireless high definition video, which is anticipated to fuel the growth of the global ultra wideband chipset market over the forecast period
- In terms of revenue, the global ultra wideband chipset market is estimated to reach value of US$ 31 Mn by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period
Advantages Associated with Ultra Wideband Technology: A Key Driver
- The ultra wideband technology is anticipated to replace the traditional RFID technology due to limitations associated with RFIDs. RFIDs have low frequency and are larger in size, and therefore not suitable for live tracking.
- UWB technology offers accuracy of 5-10 cm, which is the most required factor in live tracking, especially for indoor positioning. Moreover, UWB offers low-power transmission, low power dissipation, and robustness, apart from other benefits, making it more popular among consumers.
- The UWB technology also overcomes limitations of iBeacon technology. iBeacon technology is being used in smartphone apps to deliver location specific content. This technology has limitations in terms of latency and accuracy.
- Manufacturers are seeking new technology to overcome these limitations, and provide more frequent location updates and more precise location detection. The ultra wideband chipset measures the time it takes the signal to travel from transmitter to receiver in order to calculate the distance in centimeters. By using this method, one can get more precise location information compared to iBeacons.
- UWB can carry a huge amount of data over distances up to 230 feet. Moreover, UWB can also carry data across barriers such as doors, or cross any other obstacle due to its higher power.
- The abovementioned benefits associated with ultra wideband (UWB) technology is expected to propel the growth of the global UWB chipset market in the upcoming years
Increasing Adoption of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT): Latest Market Trend
- The usage of smart things in home appliances is significant across the globe. Products with wireless connectivity (from light bulbs to thermostats to smart speakers) are present in people’s homes today more than ever before. It has been found out that approximately 79 percent of the U.S. consumers have, at least, one connected device at home. However, the technology actually has its roots in a world that precedes the rise of remote control thermostats: industrial manufacturing, which is expected to grow at a low pace in the market after the major impact on industries due to COVID-19 in the year 2020.
- Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) takes networked sensors and intelligent devices, and puts those technologies to use directly on the manufacturing floor, collecting data to drive artificial intelligence and predictive analytics
- “In IIoT technology, sensors are attached to physical assets”, says Robert Schmid, Deloitte Digital IoT Chief Technologist. “Those sensors gather data, store it wirelessly, and use analytics and machine learning to take some kind of action.” These are the factors expected to help the UWB chipset market to gradually expand over the next few years.
