In 2000, Bluetooth equipment shipments were 800,000, soared to 1.1 billion in 2009, and this year, Bluetooth equipment shipments will reach 3 billion! The next 2018 Bluetooth annual shipments will increase to 4.7 billion "August 19 at the Bluetooth Asia Conference, Bluetooth Technology Alliance Chief Marketing Officer Zhuo Wentai shared the above data.

"In 2000, Bluetooth equipment shipments were 800,000, soared to 1.1 billion in 2009, and this year, Bluetooth equipment shipments will reach 3 billion! The next 2018 Bluetooth annual shipments will increase to 4.7 billion!" 8 On the 19th of the Bluetooth Asia Conference, Bluetooth Technology Alliance Chief Marketing Officer Zhuo Wentai shared the above data.
From this conference, we can see the future development of Bluetooth technology three trends.
Trend 1: Bluetooth technology will shine in the smart home market
It is reported that from the grid (mesh) technology to promote, from 2013-2018 Bluetooth technology in the smart home compound annual growth rate of up to 232%. Mesh technology has changed the way of traditional Bluetooth networking, broadcast form of grid, make up the traditional Bluetooth can not form a large-scale network short board, and enhance the ability to penetrate the wall, effectively expanding the application prospects of Bluetooth.
CSR Global Standards Institute Robin Heydon said in his speech that 87 Bluetooth devices, such as doors and windows, garage, kitchen alarm, dishwasher, floor drain, dining table, tables and chairs, bedroom, balcony, etc., may be used only in the home The
On the other hand, emerging low-power Bluetooth technology (BLE) also occupies a pivotal position in the low-power wireless communications market, and the smart home market will greatly promote the rapid growth of BLE technology. The main reason there are three: First, BLE itself has a low power advantage, and after several years of development, Bluetooth technology has become the market generally accepted standards; followed by mobile operating system support for Bluetooth, Bluetooth technology is already portable equipment Standard; and finally related to the development of applications and accessories, including Bluetooth headset, Bluetooth car and Bluetooth MP3 by the user favorite. Zhuo Wentai said that the future of Bluetooth technology alliance will aim at all the low-power low-power all the scenes, he pointed out that the future of Bluetooth and WiFi will form a good complement.
Trend 2: Bluetooth chip with processing power and sensor combination
In order to achieve better intelligence, the future of Bluetooth chips and sensors will be the depth of integration, the most likely manufacturers will provide SIP form of Bluetooth chipset. Zhuo Wentai said that the future of Bluetooth and sensor can be collected directly to the data collected to the cloud for processing, so that each device with Bluetooth module has become intelligent equipment, such applications in the home, office space can have great potential The
Trend 3: Beacon technology based on indoor positioning
Zhuo Wentai pointed out that Bluetooth-based Beacon positioning technology, high precision, low cost, will subvert the future of the retail model. For example, when you walk into a retail store, Beacons positioning technology can be precise positioning for you when you go to the coat window, the phone will pop up the relevant promotional information, and even according to your previous purchase of large data to recommend clothes.
