2017 Will Be the Tipping Point for USB Type-C

3Q 2016 | IN-4266

According to ABI Research’s new research Human-Machine Interface Technology Forecasts, 60 million smartphones are expected to be shipped with USB Type-C ports in 2016. We anticipates the sales of USB Type-C adoption to increase greatly in the future because USB Type-C can transmit data, power, and even audio over a single wired connection. Therefore, ABI Research estimates global shipments of smartphones equipped with USB Type-C will reach 830 million in 2021, growing at a CAGR of 69.1% between 2016 and 2021. This momentum is also confirmed by previously published USB Type-C Interfaces insight by Jeff Orr: “All indications are that the supply chain is well on its way to delivering this vision. Focus is now shifting to device and system OEMs to broadly implement Type-C in their product solutions.”
