毎年「Bluetooth® 市場動向」では、Bluetooth技術の最新のトレンドと予測を紹介しています。2022年版では、ABI Researchをはじめとする調査分析会社による市場予測や業界展望を中心に、 IoT(モノのインターネット)に関わる世界中の意思決定者が、技術ロードマップや市場で Bluetooth 技術が果たす役割について、常に最新情報を入手できるよう支援しています。また、Bluetooth技術のロードマップを紹介するとともに、Bluetooth技術の新たなトレンドを調査し、Bluetoothの主要ソリューション分野の最新予測情報を提供します。

最新の予測とトレンド

精力的なコミュニティに支えられながら、Bluetooth®技術は20年以上にわたり、絶えず進化を遂げ、ワイヤレス技術への高まる期待・ニーズに応えてきました。2020年は世界中の多くの市場にとって激動の1年になりましたが、Bluetooth市場はすぐに立ち直りを見せ、2021年までにはパンデミック前の水準に回復し始めました。市場アナリストは、2022年中に、当初の予測よりも早く回復を確認できると期待を寄せています。

さらにアナリストは、2021年から2026年で、Bluetooth対応デバイスの年間出荷量が1.5倍に増加し、年平均成長率が9%になると予測しています。2026年にはBluetoothデバイスの年間出荷量が初めて70億台を超える見込みです。

Bluetooth LEがイノベーションを促進

ABI Researchによると、Bluetooth® Low Energy(LE)の影響力が今後も周辺機器のイノベーションを牽引していくと予想されています。シングルモードの Bluetooth LEデバイスの出荷台数は、今後5年間で3倍以上の増加が見込まれており、市場の周辺機器の開発に多大な影響を与えるでしょう。

Bluetooth LEは、これからも周辺機器の市場に決定的な影響をもたらすと想定されます。2026年までにはBluetoothデバイス全体の95%がBluetooth LEになり、年平均成長率は25%に達する見通しです。

すべてのプラットフォームがBluetooth技術を搭載

Bluetooth® Classicであれ、Bluetooth LEであれ、デュアルモード(Bluetooth Classic + Bluetooth LE)であれ、市場の主要プラットフォームデバイスはいずれもBluetooth技術を搭載しています。Bluetooth ClassicとBluetooth LEがすべての主要プラットフォームデバイスに搭載されているのは、開発者が信頼できる技術として考えているからにほかなりません。どのスマートフォンやタブレット、PCにもBluetooth LEとBluetooth Classicが100%搭載された結果、Bluetooth技術がサポートするデュアルモードデバイスの出荷台数は2021年から2026年の年平均成長率が1%と、今や市場は完全な飽和状態に達しつつあります。

2022年Bluetooth市場動向」で紹介されている新しいトレンドを見ると、Bluetooth技術の方向性がはっきりとわかります。私たちは今後数週間のうちに、本報告書で実際に取り上げたユースケースやトレンドに取り組む予定であり、たとえば、ネットワーク照明制御の新たな動き、Bluetooth位置情報サービスの今後の成長、今後最終化されるLE Audioが与える影響にもかかわっていきます。
