WiFi Enabled Consumer Electronic Products: A Global Market Report

WiFi is a pervasive and evolving technology that will continue to proliferate across consumer electronics, computing, and networking markets. The cellular boom nurtured a new generation of 'always-on', mobile population that desires personalized content on-the-hoof and is more than willing to pay for it. Technological evolution enabling development of novel products and services, macroeconomic growth, and ubiquity and affordability of devices such as phones and laptops will further provide impetus to this market. Adoption of WiFi capability in consumer electronics highly depends upon the dynamics within specific device category. While gaming consoles and handheld games will continue to lead WiFi-enabled CE device categories, portable media players, portable digital music players, digital TVs, and set-top boxes will exhibit enormous growth in WiFi attach rates in upcoming years. Even a modest growth of WiFi attachment rates within mass-volume consumer electronics categories will translate into huge WiFi shipments. Demand for WiFi in cellular phones is rising because of unlicensed mobile access (UMA), faster than 3G dataspeeds, and optional enhancements. Alliance programs also boost WiFi adoption in mobile handsets. WiFi technology, heavily popularized by devices such as iPhone, is expected to penetrate deeper into smartphone industry in the near future.

As stated by the new market research report on WiFi Enabled Consumer Electronic Products, the global market for these products is projected to reach 3.7 billion units by 2015. Consumer electronics, both portable and stationary, are strong drivers of WiFi chipset market. Mobile phone vendors and wireless carriers are employing WiFi technology as a product differentiator to notch deeper market share and compete more effectively when the world tread on a stable economy.
