Demand For WiFi Equipment, Components Growing

Analysts expect the WiFi equipment market to become a $3 billion sector in the next three years. The reason: the emerging WiFi applications such as wireless game consoles, PDAs, cell phones and home entertainment systems. According to Chris Taylor, who heads the wireless components service at the Boston-based consultancy Strategy Analytics, “the market for WiFi chips will grow to more than $1.9 billion in 2006, and to $3 billion in 2010.” The company said the demand for transceivers, base-bands, and power amplifiers and other WiFi components is rising. Microsemi, Taylor revealed, is the leading supplier of modular components for WiFi networks but its market position is now being challenged by Anadigics, TriQuint, Fairchild, and RF Integrated.
