Innovations will Boost Wi-Fi Chipset Market Growth in the Foreseeable Future

Press Release   •   Apr 02, 2018 08:41 EDT

Wi-Fi is a technology based on the IEEE 802.11 standard which connects two or more devices using wireless communication within a limited area such as office building, school, home, or computer laboratory. Usage of Wi-Fi has increased significantly in residential and commercial places since the last several years due to the ease of its installation and operation. Currently, a number of devices including video-game consoles, digital cameras, digital audio players, digital printers, smart TVs, tablets, phones, and personal computers are available with built-in Wi-Fi technology. These devices can connect to the internet with the help of wireless access point or wireless LAN (Local Area Network) and can provide control and monitoring of a system from a remote location. Wi-Fi chipsets usually operate in 2.4 gigahertz UHF (Ultra High Frequency) band and 5.8 gigahertz SHF (Super high frequency) band. Wi-Fi Alliance, comprising more than 375 organizations worldwide, establishes and enforces Wi-Fi standards for compatibility and interoperability of technology.

Rise in the number of smart-city projects, especially in developing countries in Asia, technological advancements in Wi-Fi technology, and increase in usage of Wi-Fi at homes and enterprises are expected to drive the global Wi-Fi chipset market during the forecast period. Rise in the middle class due to significant economic development and growth are driving the smart-city projects in Asia Pacific. For example, the nationally selected smart-city demonstration projects in China (104 projects), the smart-city projects in India (100 projects with initial investment of more than US$ 7.5 Bn), and the Songdo smart-city plans in South Korea are projected to propel the market of Wi-Fi chipset in Asia in the next few years.

A number of global conglomerates including Google, Larsen & Toubro (L&T), RailTel, and IBM are eying the Wi-Fi network management contracts of the smart-city projects. Technical advancements such as WiGig (Wireless Gigabit) enhances the Wi-Fi experience by providing extended capacity and data transmission speeds up to multi-gigabit per second. Rise in adoption of WiGig in multimedia streaming, virtual reality, and enterprise applications demanding high speed and wireless docking are expected to boost the demand for Wi-Fi chipsets in the near future.

Similarly, demand for Wi-Fi chipsets in the home application segment is expected to increase significantly in the next few years due to the ease of installation and maintenance of Wi-Fi technology in home appliances. However, the Wi-Fi network is more vulnerable to hacking as compared to the wired network as anyone within the range of a Wi-Fi device can attempt to gain access to the network. This is anticipated to be a limiting factor to the growth of the market. However, advanced Wi-Fi applications for Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) exhibit attractive opportunities for the progress of the market during the forecast period.
