PLC system is a process of transmitting both data and electrical power, over the same power cable. The system employs existing electrical cabling as network cables, allowing them to carry data signals. The PLC system is an effective method of extending an existing network without adding new cables to new areas. A PLC system has numerous benefits over a wireless connection; nevertheless, the quality of the connection solely depends on the quality of the local electrical system. A wide range of PLC technologies have been used in various applications such as smart home automation to Internet access, which is often called as power over Ethernet (PoE). Power companies have started investing in advanced power management technologies and control technologies owing to the growing demand for power line communication and broadband. Focus has shifted from traditional power Grids to Smart Grids and PLC is one of the major components in Smart Grids. Hence, with the increasing number of Smart Grids coming, there would be a significant rise in the PLC market during the forecast period. The changes in technology have been seen through the introduction of congestive radio networks. With the development of power management technologies, expansion in power line communication could be expected during the forecast period. Hence, it could be one of the major factors driving the growth of the power line communication market.
