Since 1999, annual shipments of Wi-Fi enabled devices have grown rapidly, with a major inflection point in 2008 as the smartphone market took off.

In 2014, over 2.4 billion Wi-Fi enabled devices were shipped, while the industry surpassed 10 billion Wi-Fi enabled devices shipped cumulatively in early 2015. Over half of product shipments are dual-band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) now. The market is forecast to continue to grow rapidly over the next 5 years as the technology is adopted across a wide variety of markets, including consumer, mobile, automotive, and emerging markets.

This product tracks Wi-Fi enabled device shipments and attach rates in 30+ end markets and provides forecast to 2020.
