Wireless Connectivity

A newer version of this research is available.

Please refer to Wireless Connectivity Technology Segmentation & Addressable Markets to ensure you are viewing the latest forecasts.

Wireless connectivity technology is 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 technology also continues 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.

This market data provides quarterly updates on the wireless connectivity markets covering Bluetooth (classic and v4.0), Wi-Fi (g, a/g, n, ac, ad, Wi-Fi Direct), NFC, GPS, and 802.15.4 (inc. ZigBee & RF4CE) across 30+ end markets.

It provides an analysis of enabled devices, including shipments and technology attach rates, and an analysis of the IC market, including standalone vs. combo ICs vs. integrated platforms by major end market.

Competitive analysis, including market share charts for major technologies, is also provided.
