Wi-Fi has become the most preferred technology in consumer electronics. Currently, every residential and commercial building has a number of Wi-Fi access points.
Every consumer has two or more Wi-Fi-enabled devices such as a laptop, smartphone, and smartwatch. As a result, the number of Wi-Fi connections that every access point needs to handle is getting higher every year.
More number of Wi-Fi connections would require more channels and higher spectral efficiency to connect such large number of devices with high throughput. This factor is expected to accelerate the demand for 802.11ax, 802.11ay, and 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi standards over a 60GHz band that supports multi-user multiple input multiple output (MU-MIMO) and gigabit data transfer rates.
Among the two distinct MIMO configuration technology used in Wi-Fi chipset, the MU-MIMO segment in consumer electronics products is expected to grow at highest rate between 2017 and 2022. The high growth of MU-MIMO segment in consumer electronics products is attributed to the disadvantage of single user multiple input multiple output (SU-MIMO) in which multiple streams of data can be sent or received by only one device at a time, even in a multi-device environment.
Asia Pacific (APAC) held the largest share of the Wi-Fi chipset market in 2016 owing to the extensive presence of major consumer electronics device orginal equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in this region. Moreover, the high penetration of Wi-Fi technology in various industries such as healthcare, retail, and manufacturing in APAC has contributed to the market dominance of this region.
