May 31, 2010 // Peter Clarke, EETimes.com
Global shipments of Wi-Fi ICs are forecast to surpass 770 million units in 2010, up almost 33 percent compared to 2009, according to the ABI Research wing of Allied Business Intelligence Inc.
Shipments of 802.11n ICs will surge ahead of 802.11g and dominate the
market this year, accounting for approximately 60 percent of total
Wi-Fi IC shipments. Cellular handsets will continue to be responsible
for the highest number of Wi-Fi-enabled products in next five years,
achieving an estimated CAGR of 25 percent between 2009 and 2015; the
penetration rate will reach approximately 40 percent of total handsets
shipped in 2015.
Laptops, netbooks, and mobile internet devices are
other segments which will see higher shipments across all Wi-Fi-enabled
products, and the trend will carry on throughout the following years.
"The penetration rate of Wi-Fi ICs in consumer electronic products will
continue to grow robustly. Total shipments of consumer electronic
products with Wi-Fi functionality are expected to exceed 530 million in
2015, with a 26 percent CAGR between 2009 and 2015," said Celia Bo, a
semiconductor industry analyst for ABI Research, in a statement.
"Shipments of Wi-Fi-enabled digital still cameras, TVs and DVD players
will increase more than tenfold in 2015 as compared to 2009. The demand
for Wi-Fi-enabled home entertainment products such as networked game
consoles and handheld game consoles is increasing as well: between 2009
and 2015, the CAGR will reach 8 and 6 percent respectively."
