Global Powerline Carrier Market 2016-2020

Published: May 2016
No. of Pages: 61

PLC is a communication networking technology that uses existing powerlines for transmitting data to both low-speed and high-speed networks. This is achieved by superposing a modulated high-frequency carrier signal onto a powerline, which is then decoupled and demodulated at the receiving end. Therefore, PLC technology enables the controlling and monitoring of all devices that are connected to the powerline.

The analysts forecast global powerline carrier market to grow at a CAGR of 9.13% during the period 2016-2020.
