Thermoelectric energy harvesters- market and application assessment

Thermoelectric energy harvesters- market and application assessment

Although thermoelectric phenomena have been used for heating and cooling applications extensively, electricity generation has only seen very limited market penetration in niche applications and it is only in recent years that interest has increased for applications of energy generation through thermoelectric harvesting. This growth in interest will continue and will be characterized by an overall market for thermoelectric energy harvesters that will reach almost US$1 billion by 2024.
