Market Report Description

The Global Bluetooth 5.0 Market size is expected to reach $7.6 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 11.2% CAGR during the forecast period.

A short-range network technology standard called Bluetooth is used to create personal area networks and exchange data over short distances between stationary and mobile devices (PANs). It uses UHF radio waves between 2.402 GHz and 2.48 GHz in the ISM bands. It is mostly used as an alternative to wired connections, to transfer files between adjacent portable devices, and to pair wireless headphones with cell phones and music players. Transmission power in the most popular mode is restricted to 2.5 milliwatts, giving it a fairly short reach of up to 10 meters (33 ft).

This proposes and prototypes a novel Smart Living system dubbed a home lighting control system using an Android smartphone with Bluetooth.

Market Restraining Factors

Interference with Bluetooth Packets

For every wireless system, interference has been one of the main obstacles to enabling dependable data connectivity. Since Bluetooth and Wi-Fi devices and other wireless technologies share a transmission medium, a data packet can be damaged or destroyed during transmission if it collides with another packet that is also being communicated at the same time and on the same frequency channel. A proposed interference awareness technique is based on the BLE connection's packet state. To identify interference as soon as feasible in the BLE connection, many properties of each packet sent and received are tracked.
