Although UWB has a broad range of applications and potential markets, the lengthy standardization process and the uncertainty over a final IEEE standard for UWB PHY have delayed the development of UWB-based devices. For this reason, only a relatively small number of companies are actively developing UWB systems at the time of writing. Table 5-4 lists some of the UWB market leaders and identifies their target markets.
