The Wi-Fi chipset market was valued at USD 15.89 Billion in 2016 and is expected to reach USD 19.72 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 3.5% between 2017 and 2022.  The growing number of public Wi-Fi hotspots, growth in connected devices ownership, rising demand for WiGig technology, and growth of Wi-Fi technology in enterprise and business are the major drivers for the Wi-Fi chipset market.

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.

The scope of this report covers the Wi-Fi chipset market on the basis of product category, MIMO configuration, band, IEEE standards, and geography. Among the IEEE standards segment, the IEEE 802.11n led the Wi-Fi chipset market in 2016. However, IEEE 802.11n is expected to lose a significant market share to IEEE 802.11ac Wave 1 standard and 802.11ac Wave 2 standard in the overall Wi-Fi chipset market during the forecast period. The IEEE 802.11ac standard allows for theoretical speeds up to 6.9 Gbps in the 5 GHz band.

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.

Wi-Fi Chipset Market

Despite the growth of overall consumer electronics segment in Asia Pacific (APAC), the PCs and tablet shipment is expected to witness a negligible growth in shipment, affected largely by the improved performance of phablet and growing affordability of smartphones. Moreover, the decline in shipment is expected to continue at least for the next couple of years and is attributed to the mature installed base and high replacement cycle of these two products. Developed countries in Western Europe and North America are expected to witness a significant fall in shipment of tablets during the forecast period. Apart from the declining shipment of tablets and PCs, the enormous growth of mobile devices and the rapid increase in public Wi-Fi networks has increased the threat of many hidden risks such as identity theft, hacking, and jamming. These factors are expected to hinder the growth of the Wi-Fi chipset market during the forecast period
