Recently, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) and ABI Research released the "Bluetooth Market Update 2022", which shares the latest market insights and trends, in order to help global IoT decision makers keep abreast of Bluetooth technology in its technology roadmap and plans. It plays a key role in the market, and provides help to improve the Bluetooth innovation capabilities of enterprises and promote the development of Bluetooth technology.
Bluetooth technology supports a variety of radio options, including classic Bluetooth (Classic), low energy Bluetooth (LE), dual mode (classic Bluetooth + low energy Bluetooth / Classic + LE).
Today, given that all key platform devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc. include both Bluetooth Classic and Bluetooth Low Energy, the majority of Bluetooth devices shipped in the past five years are also dual-mode devices. In addition, many audio devices such as in-ear headphones are also transitioning to dual-mode operation.

Bluetooth technology is versatile, and today its applications have expanded from the original audio transmission to low-power data transmission, indoor location services, and reliable large-scale device networking.

Bluetooth technology first freed devices such as headphones and speakers from the hassle of cables, revolutionized the audio field, and revolutionized the way people use media and experience the world. Key use cases include: wireless headsets, wireless speakers, in-car systems, and more.

In addition, building on two decades of innovation, LE Audio (Low Power Audio) will enhance the performance of Bluetooth audio, providing higher audio quality at lower power consumption, driving the entire audio peripherals market (headset earphones, in-ear headphones, etc.) continued to grow.

The IoT application market for Bluetooth data transmission is gradually expanding. As people learn more about Bluetooth fitness tracking and health monitoring devices, consumer demand for wearables is also increasing. Annual shipments of Bluetooth wearables are expected to reach 491 million units by 2026.

Bluetooth technology is also currently widely used as a device positioning technology to meet the growing demand for high-precision indoor positioning services. It is widely used in smart home, smart building, smart transportation and other fields.

By using one Bluetooth device to determine the presence, distance, and orientation of another, Bluetooth technology provides flexibility unmatched by any other radiolocation technology, enabling building managers and owners to scale indoor positioning solutions, To meet the different and changing needs of buildings.

Item tracking has become the main service object of Bluetooth location services. In recent years, personal item tracking solutions have been applied continuously. For example, Samsung launched the Samsung Galaxy SmartTag last year, and Apple's Apple AirTags also came out, which further made the innovation of personal item tracking technology widely recognized and shipped for Bluetooth location service devices. major contribution to the growth in volume.
Demand for asset tracking drives continued growth in Bluetooth location services. Among Bluetooth location services solutions, asset tracking (RTLS) and location tags are the main drivers for continued growth. Commercial RTLS systems, including medical, accounted for the largest share of device shipments this year.

Bluetooth mesh networking is also increasingly becoming the wireless communication platform of choice for many control systems, including advanced lighting solutions for the smart building and smart industrial markets.

Bluetooth wireless sensor networks (WSN) can monitor lighting, temperature, humidity and occupancy to increase employee productivity, reduce building operating costs or better meet production equipment condition and maintenance requirements and reduce unplanned downtime.

Bluetooth is one of the key technologies to realize the network of smart home devices. In the home IoT, Bluetooth has become the technology of choice for many smart home solutions, and its role continues to expand.

The applications of smart home automation controllers, smart lighting, and smart home appliances will also continue to increase. The benefits of Bluetooth-connected lighting control go far beyond lighting. The popularity of LEDs, coupled with user desire for higher energy efficiency, faster deployment capabilities, and higher quality user experience, are driving the demand for Bluetooth commercial connected lighting control solutions.

Bluetooth-connected lighting control systems provide the infrastructure needed for intelligent management to capture more granular data and integrate with other building automation systems, including environmental sensors (air quality, temperature, humidity, etc.) and HVAC systems, enabling buildings to Managers can achieve automatic control of core systems and prolong their service life.

As one of the important components of the Internet of Things, the development of Bluetooth also promotes the development of the Internet of Things, and in the application scenarios of Bluetooth, the Internet of Things is also an important market force. In the future, the continuous evolution and improvement of Bluetooth technology will also bring greater imagination to IoT products, and we look forward to it together.
