“The rebounding Wi-Fi infrastructure market in 2024 will be markedly different from that of recent years,” says Andrew Spivey, Senior Analyst at ABI Research. “Accelerating the return-to-office trend will spur enterprise Wi-Fi demand, while heightened intra-operator competition will drive appetite for higher-end residential Wi-Fi infrastructure. Infrastructure vendors on both sides must recognize and respond to these shifts. Those targeting enterprise must address modern businesses' increasing density and performance requirements. At the same time, in the residential sector, vendors will have to grapple with a contracted retail market whose opportunities are concentrated in the high-end.”

One of the most anticipated new features of Wi-Fi 7 is multi-link operation (MLO), noted Andrew Spivey, a senior analyst with ABI Research, a global technology intelligence firm. “It will help resolve the spectrum congestion challenges that consumers and enterprises are currently facing by vastly improving spectrum efficiency,” he told TechNewsWorld. “MLO does this by enabling the aggregating of multiple radio links to form wider channels than would otherwise be necessary.”

Many recent developments are converging to create an era of market revolution in residential Wi-Fi. One of these is the sooner than expected arrival of Wi-Fi 7, with early 2022 witnessing Qualcomm’s unveiling of the industry’s first Wi-Fi 7 chipset, followed by Broadcom’s recent announcement of its Wi-Fi 7 ecosystem, which included the residential access point BCM6726/67263 chipsets. ABI Research forecasts shipments of Wi-Fi 7 chipsets to reach over 16 million this year, rising to nearly half-a-billion in 2026. Alongside this, ABI Research expects the maturing of mesh Wi-Fi networking, with revenue for mesh infrastructure forecasted to undergo a 15% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) between 2021 and 2026, rising from $2.9 billion to $4.6 billion. Meanwhile, the flourishing of new forms of Wi-Fi value added services is acting to fundamentally redefine connectivity in the home. One such service is Wi-Fi motion detection, with Cognitive, Origin Home, and Plume all offering innovative solutions. “From the release of new Wi-Fi protocols and clean spectrum, to the coming of age of mesh networking and value-added services, it is clear that the residential Wi-Fi market is currently undergoing a period of rapid structural transformation,” says Andrew Spivey, Industry Analyst at ABI Research. “In order to remain competitive, industry players need to be wary of not becoming complacent and must begin preparing their business strategies now.” The rise of innovation in the resid
