In developing economies, it is necessary to curb on the increasing operating cost and other
energy-related cost In order to utilize the natural resources and reduce the overall cost, it has
become mandatory to harvest the ambient energy available at a free scale and extract it for
commercial applications. Thus, energy harvesting is becoming the crucial technique to harvest
the ambient energy. The major driving factors for energy harvesting market are energy saving,
increasing government support, and changing technology trends. Energy harvesting technique is
useful in scavenging solar energy, vibration, motion, electromagnetic, motion, fluid, etc. This
report covers most of the types of energy harvesting like light, thermoelectric, vibration,
electromagnetic, fluid, motion, and others.

In the present scenario, energy harvesting can be useful in various application areas such as
consumer electronics, industrial, building and home automation, military and aerospace, wireless
sensor network (WSN), automotive, bicycle dynamo, and others. Consumer electronics is widely
exposed to the energy harvesting technology. Energy harvesting technique is used to charging up
the devices like mobile, watch, mp3 players, etc. Building and home automation is one of the
fastest growing application areas and energy harvesting is the mainstream technology in this
area. A wireless sensor network is also the key application area for energy harvesting technique.

Global energy harvesting market is expected to reach $1894.87 million by 2017, at an estimated
CAGR of 24.31%. Europe is leading the total energy harvesting technology market; followed by
North America and APAC. In the market of ROW, Middle East, and Africa are the largest

Electroactive polymers (EAPs) have been proposed for harvesting energy. These polymers have
a large strain, elastic energy density, and high energy conversion efficiency. The total weight of
systems based on EAPs is proposed to be significantly lower than those based on piezoelectric

Nanogenerators, such as the one made by Georgia Tech, could provide a new way for powering
devices without batteries. As of 2008, it only generates some dozen nanowatts, which is too low
for any practical application.
Noise harvesting NiPS Laboratory in Italy has recently proposed to harvest wide spectrum low
scale vibrations via a nonlinear dynamical mechanism that can improve harvester efficiency up
to a factor 4 compared to traditional linear harvesters.
