Wireless Connectivity Technology Segmentation & Addressable Markets

Wireless connectivity technology is well-established in many electronic device markets. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GNSS are becoming ubiquitous in certain devices, such as smartphones, with attach rates approaching 100% in some cases. Rapid growth is also forecast for 802.15.4 and NFC across various verticals. Wireless connectivity chipsets continue to shift from standalone chips to combo chips, or combo chips and integrated platforms in certain areas.

This market data provides quarterly updates on the wireless connectivity markets covering Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, NFC, 802.15.4, and GNSS across 60+ end markets. It provides an analysis of enabled devices including shipments and technology attach rates and an analysis of the IC market, which includes standalone versus combo ICs versus integrated platforms by major end market.

Competitive analysis, including market share charts for major technologies, is also provided. Quarterly market share is provided as pivot charts and is highly segmented. For each of the total market, smartphones, feature phones, tablets, and other products, the quarterly market share is provided for standalone chipsets, combo chipsets, and integrated platforms for each of Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, NFC, and GNSS. Some of the major chipset suppliers covered include Broadcom, Qualcomm, MediaTek, Intel, Marvell, NXP, Cypress, TI, STM, among others.
