It is reported that wireless charging includes the transmitting end and the receiving end, and the industrial chain mainly includes the design of the program, power supply chips, magnetic materials, transmission coils, and module manufacturing. Since the transmission coil needs to be built into the terminal, there is a high requirement for low loss and thinning, and as the iPhone transitions from FPC (Frame Rate Control) to a tightly wound coil, the coil scheme is expected to become mainstream. At present, the wireless charging industry chain is gradually mature and the division of labor is increasingly clear. Among domestic listed companies, Helitech is one of the few companies that has deployed wireless charging in advance and has mass production capacity. Based on a comprehensive understanding of the core resources of wireless charging technology and a full range of solutions, the company has completed related investment plans and preparations.
At present, the gradual convergence of wireless charging standards and the gradual maturity of wireless charging technology, Samsung, Apple's flagship level has launched a wireless charging function. Everbright Securities analyst Yang Minghui believes that the mobile wireless charging industry will usher in an inflection point. According to market research firm IHS, the global wireless charging market will grow from 1.7 billion U.S. dollars in 2015 to 15 billion U.S. dollars in 2024, with a compound annual growth rate of 27%.
The wireless charging penetration rate has been further improved and domestic brands are expected to follow suit. At the end of 2017, the M7plus released by Jinli joined the wireless fast charging function, charging power up to 10 watts. Yang Minghui expects that Huawei, vivo, OPPO and other domestic brands will closely follow the pace of Apple's innovation and gradually add wireless charging capabilities to the next-generation flagship.
Not only mobile phones but also wireless charging scenes represented by consumer electronics have been formed. IKEA's desk lamp base, Starbucks bar, and family convenience store all charge wireless phones. According to the American technology website "Apple Insider", at the end of 2017, Apple released a supporting document listing car brands that provide wireless chargers compatible with the iPhone 8, including Audi, BMW, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, and Mei. Mercedes-Benz, PSA Peugeot Citroen, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo. In addition, the latest ES8 released by Weilai Automobile is also equipped with the WPCQi wireless charging function, which can be used to charge Apple, Samsung and other flagship models.
As terminal brand manufacturers go ahead, wireless charging is a general trend. How to further improve the wireless charging industry? Specifically, it should be divided into the following points. First, companies should increase investment in product development, manufacturing, and upgrades, train high-quality R&D teams, strive to continuously improve technologies, and introduce wireless charging devices of higher quality, more convenient, and more widely applicable. Secondly, industrial organizations should intensify their supervision and review the companies and their products at any time. Once they discover that companies have waged price wars with low-quality products, or have conducted malicious propaganda, such as false propaganda, they must be given severe punishment. To maintain the market environment. Third, consumers should maintain a sensible outlook on consumption. Do not blindly follow the trend and try to make a difference. If you are familiar with product-related information as much as possible, choose an experience based on your own needs, and avoid inadvertently helping companies over-promote. In this way, the wireless charging industry can be developed in a healthy and orderly manner.
