Wi-Fi-Enabled Devices to Exceed 1.9 Billion Units by 2014

29 JULI 2010

The quest for connectivity continues to drive Consumer Electronics (CE) manufacturers to enable their products with Wi-Fi technology.  The next 5 years will see an increase in the number of Wi-Fi-enabled devices, from over 500 million in 2009 to nearly 2 billion in 2014, according to In-Stat (www.in-stat.com).  Devices leading the pace of adoption include Blu-ray players/recorders, e-readers, and digital televisions.

“The reality of 802.11n-enabled devices being available is that many of the technical issues that constrained Wi-Fi adoption in video-centric CE devices in the past have been remedied,” says Frank Dickson, Vice President.  "As a result, we expect the adoption of Wi-Fi in the living room to accelerate.  Across all 'digital living room' electronics, which includes set top boxes, game consoles, and other such devices, Wi-Fi-enabled devices will exceed 200 million units by 2014."
