WLAN Chip Sales Boom

Wireless LAN chip sales have exploded and will continue to grow through to 2009. IDC predicts that 487 million units will be sold by 2009 and revenues of WLAN semiconductors will increase from $1.2 billion in 2004 to $3.0 billion by 2009.

“Increased competition and advanced chip integration will continue to create intense pricing pressure in the WLAN market, however, opportunities still exist for vendors to differentiate themselves from the pack,” said Celeste Crystal, senior research analyst at IDC. “Low power consumption as a result of single-chip designs, increasingly robust quality of service (QoS) mechanisms, and the role of WLAN in consumer VoIP all provide opportunities to build loyalty.”

IDC is offering two new studies based on the worldwide WLAN semiconductor market; The Worldwide WLAM Semiconductor Forecast and Analysis 2005-2009 examines the market for components going into 802.11 WLAN client and infrastructure markets and the Worldwide WLAN Semiconductor 2004 Vendor Profiles explores market share shifts and discusses the strategies of major semiconductor suppliers that offer chipsets going into the 802.11 WLAN markets..
