Due to the convenient usage and comfort, wireless charging devices have seen a drastic rise in user adoption and this has significantly mitigated the use of wires in providing power to devices. This charging technology enables a battery-powered device to charge on its own when placed near a transmitter. Over the last three years (2016-2019), wireless charging tech has created a massive user base and witnessed significant industry developments, resulting in a huge market potential in the coming years. Out of all the specific industry standards, the majority of the companies have adopted the Qi standard, which is known to enable interoperability between devices.

According to the research analysts at BIS Research, the global market for wireless charging is estimated to reach the mark of $33.48 billion by 2024, while growing at a CAGR of 41.79% over the years 2019-2024. Several factors, such as standardization of regulations for wireless devices, technological and dynamic design enhancements, increase in smart handheld devices, among others, are responsible for driving the growth in the global market for wireless charging devices. Most of the smartphones in the premium category, laptops, handheld devices, drones, among others, are expected to be launched in the market that is embedded with this wireless-enabled tech. The industry is experiencing an exponential growth owing to companies adopting strategies such as product launches, acquisition of start-ups and emerging players, partnerships and collaborations, to tackle the competition.

Several tech companies such as Google, LG Electronics, Samsung Electronics, Apple, and others, have curated smartphone devices that adapt to this charging tech. Apart from these, the New Jersey-based Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) has emerged as a remarkable development in the industry and paved a path for the manufacturers to launch certified products that are acceptable on a global scale. Based on the technologies available, inductive wireless charging is dominating the market share, and in 2018, it accounted for almost 100% share as the most adopted solution due to its efficiency, fast-charging capabilities, and widespread adoption of the Qi standards.
