Wi-Fi Chipset Market Size & Share | North America, Europe, & APAC Industry Forecasts 2026: Graphical Research

·6 min read

Major Wi-Fi chipset market players include MediaTek, Inc., ON Semiconductors, NXP Semiconductors N.V., Qualcomm Technologies Inc., Celeno Communications, Cypress Semiconductor Corporation, Texas Instruments, Broadcom Inc., and Intel Corporation.

Pune, India, April 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

The global Wi-Fi chipset market size is projected to show tremendous growth during the forecast period owing to growing need for Wi-Fi services in public spaces. Hospitals, coffee shops, colleges and hotels are stimulating the demand for public Wi-Fi connection so that the staff members and customers can get their work done at a much faster pace.

There is an increased demand for 5G technology as well in various countries across the world, especially the developed economies. For example, according to the statistics released by the European 5G Observatory, 18 countries in the European Union (EU) have commercialized 5G services.

Consumer electronics market is seeing rise in use of 5G technology in laptops, smartphones, tablets, and many other devices as they have an in-built Wi-Fi chipset. Use of these chipsets improves the overall efficiency of a device and data transmission takes place at a much faster rate. They reduce network connectivity problems as well.

Some of the trends that will encourage the growth of Wi-Fi chipset market across the world are mentioned below:

Scope of IEEE 802.11n standard in Asia Pacific:

Out of the different network standards in Asia Pacific, IEEE 802.11n standard is projected to show strong growth prospects in the coming years. In fact, the segment showed strong revenue figures as it earned $960 million in 2019. The reason for this is its ability to extend the range of wireless transmission and providing reliability and enhanced network speed. The chipsets having this network standard possess high data transmission speed as well; it can transfer data at a rate of 600 Mbps.

The demand for this network is mostly seen in large scale enterprises wherein internet speed is of utmost importance and outdoor locations where strong internet connectivity is required.

APAC witnesses demand for dual band configuration

While analyzing demand for Wi-Fi chipsets on the basis of frequency, the APAC Wi-Fi chipset market is divided into single band, dual band and tri band configurations. Out of these, the dual band configuration sector is expected to experience steady increase in demand as it will grow at a CAGR of 3.5% up to 2026. It uses both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands and offers a wide range of benefits to its end-users. It provides enhanced network speed and is quite frequently used in automotive industry.

China’s potential in demand for Wi-Fi chipsets:

When it comes to analyzing country-wise demand for Wi-Fi chipset in Asia Pacific, it is being reported that China will be a leader in this market, thanks to increased demand for high-speed network and rising use of the Internet. According to market experts, the regional industry will register a growth rate of 4% in the forthcoming years.

The Chinese government has established a strong public network infrastructure to cater to the rising number of internet users in the country. According to national statistics focusing on the use of strong network among the population, it was found that 800 million Chinese people used strong internet network services to work in remote regions.

Laptops sales will increase in Europe:

Rise in gaming culture in Europe will foster demand for laptops in the region. The sale of laptops has skyrocketed in recent years. According to a Gaming Industry report published in 2019 by the Interactive Software Federation of Europe (ISFE), sale of gaming and general-purpose laptops recorded a whopping 18% sales revenue in 2018 alone. Wi-Fi chipsets offer several benefits to gaming laptop users like high speed, greater connectivity, greater mobility of devices and ease of handling.
