Wi-Fi Enabled Devices Reach 409 Million Units


Faster 802.11n Systems Expected To Gain Momentum

The number of Wi-Fi systems shipped per year grew from 59 million units in 2005 to 409 million forecast to be shipped in 2009, a seven-fold increase, driven by notebook PCs, Smart Phones and Wi-Fi gaming consoles. According to the Strategy Analytics report, “Connected Home & Portable Devices: Global Market Forecast and Outlook,” shipments of Notebook and Netbook PCs, all equipped with Wi-Fi, will grow at the expense of desktop PCs; while at the same time, higher-stream 802.11n systems will serve the multimedia needs of consumers in the home.

“Now that IEEE 802.11n has received ratification as a global standard, Strategy Analytics expects to see strong sales of 11n-enabled devices. By the end of 2010 they will ship in more than half of all Wi-Fi systems” said Peter King Director of the Connected Home Devices Service. He continued, “This will enable Wi-Fi to drive deeper into the consumer electronics range of products. An initial market dominated by computing and gaming becomes a much more evenly-spread, Wi-Fi-connected market.”
