Mobile PCs and smartphones will be top revenue opportunities for IC suppliers in emerging high-speed wireless device market: IHS

25th January 2014 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, January 25, 2014: Mobile PCs and smartphones will represent the top revenue opportunities for high-speed wireless integrated circuit (IC) suppliers by 2018, as these devices are projected to be the highest-volume applications in this market over the next five years, according to a new report from IHS Technology.

Between 2013 and 2018, more than 400 million high-speed wireless ICs are projected to ship cumulatively into the mobile PC market, generating global revenue of $2.5 billion, according to the new IHS report entitled: “60GHz Technologies and Other Competing Wireless Standards – World – 2013.”

During the same period, more than 80 million high-speed wireless ICs are projected to ship cumulatively into the smartphone market, with worldwide revenue forecast to exceed $260 million in 2018.

IHS defines a high-speed wireless-enabled device as one that includes at least one of the following technologies: WirelessHD, WHDI, 802.11ad (WiGig) or multi-stream Wi-Fi (802.11n 3×3 higher or 802.11ac 2×2 and higher).

Shipments of high-speed, wireless-enabled mobile PCs are forecast to exceed 125 million devices in 2018, driven primarily by the adoption of multi-stream Wi-Fi for these devices, as presented in the attached figure.

Senior Analyst for Connectivity at IHS Stephanie Gibbons said, “The primary use cases for high-speed wireless mobile PCs will span both the consumer and enterprise markets. In the home, high-speed wireless-enabled PCs will be used to stream HD content to the TV on the home network. In the office space, mobile PCs equipped with high-speed wireless will be able to receive and transfer large files in seconds—compared to minutes—and act as a source device for larger displays for use in applications such as video conferencing.”

Annual shipments of high-speed wireless-enabled smartphones will reach 36 million devices in 2018, IHS projects, driven principally by the adoption of 60-gigahertz technology. The primary use for high-speed wireless smartphones is expected to be HD video streaming from the smartphone to the TV within the home entertainment network.
