Wi-Fi chipset sales to pass 120 million this year

Six years ago there were no Wi-Fi chipsets shipped, because there were none to ship. Now there have been 100 million chipsets shipped already this year and it is expected that more than 120 million will be shipped by the end of the year. The 100 million mark was seen as a major milestone, but it was blown past quickly because of the 64% average yearly growth rate in the industry.

“Wi-Fi has truly come of age,” said Frank Hanzlik, Managing Director of the Wi-Fi Alliance. “Today more than 90% of notebook computers are Wi-Fi enabled, and as we look ahead, there are seemingly limitless opportunities, due to the insatiable consumer and enterprise demand for the technology. We expect the next milestones will come even faster as Wi-Fi becomes integrated into consumer electronics and mobile handsets and more people around the world experience the benefits of Wi-Fi CERTIFIED products.”
