Global Wireless Power Transmission Market: Overview
Wireless power transmission is the wireless technology through which power is transmitted from one place to another. In this, electromagnetic energy is transferred from power sources to electric loads. It is widely used mode of transmission for the electrical energy. The main drawback of this mode is that certain amount of energy is lost during transmission. Wireless power transmission is fast and consistent in nature; apart from this, it uses both short and long-range transmissions. However, it requires low maintenance cost. Wireless power transmission is usually used to transfer energy to remote areas. It is extensively used in the consumer electronics goods applications such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets. Whereas, largest application of the wireless power transmission is the solar-power satellites. It is used in robots and fuel-free rockets, fuel-free aircraft, and fuel-free electric automobiles.
