The North America Power Line Communication Market Size is poised to grow at a CAGR of 17.2% during the forecast period (2016 - 2022).
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). PLC is majorly used in residential, commercial, and industrial sectors, owing to its cost-effectiveness, space efficiency, and ability to operate many devices. Nevertheless, centralized risk associated with connected devices would limit the market growth.
Despite challenges, various advantages of PLC systems over wireless technologies would propel market growth during the forecast period. Broadband connectivity has given rise to the demand for sending digital voice, video, and Internet data.
