Wireless Connectivity Markets

Wireless connectivity technologies are well-established in many electronic device markets. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS are becoming ubiquitous in certain devices, such as smartphones, with attach rates approaching 100% in some cases. Rapid growth is forecast for newer technologies such as NFC and 802.15.4. Wireless connectivity technologies also continue to progress at a fast pace, with new developments such as Bluetooth v4.0 (with low energy being a key facet) and Wi-Fi moving to the 802.11ac standard and 802.11ad coming in the future. As attach rates increase, combinations of different wireless connectivity technologies have been developed to address the needs of customers. "Combo ICs" have become increasingly important, particularly in the smartphone, laptop, and media tablet markets (among others). Standalone ICs are not dead, however, and there are many compelling reasons that not all markets will to move to combo ICs. This comprehensive study includes market estimates and forecasts for eight wireless connectivity technologies (Bluetooth, Bluetooth v4.0, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, GPS, NFC, UWB, and 802.15.4) across 26 device categories. It presents a detailed look at the wireless connectivity IC market, including forecasts for standalone versus combo ICs and vendor market shares for the major product categories.
