How is limited power source posing challenges to wireless sensor network market players?

The nodes in wireless sensor networks have to manage power from small batteries as they lack fixed infrastructure. As a frequent manual replacement of the batteries of thousands of sensors, actuators, and other connected devices within a wireless sensor network is not feasible, the main hurdle is the power management of devices using wireless technologies such as Wi-Fi. Recent developments in the areas of microcontrollers and wireless technologies have resulted in low-power communication wireless sensor nodes. However, a sensor node has a limited life as it works on battery. The sensor nodes need to be equipped with energy harvesting units such as solar and vibrations and other sustainability modes to enhance their life. Though semiconductor manufacturers are already working toward producing ultra-low-power chips and modules, innovations in battery technologies and power management of connected devices pose a major challenge for the players in the wireless sensor network market.
