The global wireless gigabit (WiGig) market was valued at USD 1,652.5 million in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 5,236.9 million by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 20.9% during 2020-2025. The global WiGig market size is anticipated to grow, owing to the rising need for better internet connectivity, coupled with better speed are increasing the demand for WiGig across the globe. Additionally, the rapid smartphone penetration, along with significant growth in the use of many devices will further contribute to the growth of the global WiGig market.
Rising demand from the end-customers for high-speed wireless connectivity is creating significant opportunities for the development of new technologies like WiGig. This technology will have its edge over others, due to the capability to provide data transfer in a multi-gigabit manner, which is further improving its use in a wide number of applications right from file backup to video streaming.
Insight by Type
Based on type, the global WiGig market has been fragmented into 802.11ac and 802.11ad. The 802.11ac segment had a dominant share in the previous years and is further expected to improve its dominance until the end of the forecast period. This is majorly due to the increased throughput between 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz band frequencies. Nevertheless, with the swiftly developing wireless technology, the IEEE 802.11ad standard segment is projected to increase at a significant CAGR over the coming years. This standard provides features such as higher data throughput, and a lower latency solution which will be operated under a 60GHz millimeter-wave band.
Insight by Product
By product, the global WiGig market has been segmented into consumer electronics and networking devices. The consumer electronics WiGig products segment is anticipated to dominate the global market with a dominant share in the past years, and the same trend is predicted to continue over the coming years, owing to the rising consumer adoption of the 802.11ac access points across the globe. The consumers will get benefitted from the ultra-fast connectivity offered by the WiGig, which is required to transfer huge data files between devices such as smartphones, tablets, set-top boxes, and computers. The majority of the IC manufacturers operating in this market are targeting the consumers, through their consumer electronic devices, which consists of mobile phones, laptops, monitors, TVs, Wi-Fi access points, and tablets by through advanced WiGig ICs.
Insight by End User
The global WiGig market has been segmented by end-user into large enterprises, small & medium businesses (SMB), and residential areas. The WiGig market for large enterprises is predicted to show its dominance throughout the projected period, owing to the increasing use of WiGig in government and commercial sectors. Moreover, these solutions are witnessing adoption in large scale enterprises, owing to the growing demand for bandwidth and high-speed Internet requirements in this sector.
Additionally, the WiGig market for SMB end-user is projected to witness fastest growth, owing to the rise in the adoption of BYOD policy among the SMB companies. Moreover, the rise in the IoT trends will further lead to a rise in demand WiGig. The companies operating in the healthcare, education, and hospitality sectors are having devices that are continuously connected to the internet, and they also require high-speed data connections. To deliver secure and fast Internet connectivity to their customers and employees, these companies are adopting WiGig.
Insight by Application
Based on application, the global WiGig market can be categorized into Docking Stations, HDMI streaming devices, and others. Of all, docking stations held the largest market share in 2019, and is also predicted to register the fastest growth during the forecast period (2020 – 2025). This can be owing to the growing adoption of BYOD devices among the enterprises wherein employees can able to connect their personal devices such as laptops to computer peripherals via docking station.
The global WiGig market will witness growth, owing to the rising transition activities from enterprise-driven to the cloud-based technologies. Moreover, increasing demand for data centers and ethernet switches in cloud computing is further leading to market growth.
Rising inclination towards the BYOD policy among the companies operating in the various end-use industries is creating a significant need for WiGig, which in turn drives the market over the coming years. This shift towards the BYOD is creating a scope for the companies to enhance their budgets for IT infrastructure to improve their network throughput. Significant growth in the increased use of mobile phones, laptops, desktops and other electronic devices at work is creating a significant dependency for a high bandwidth and internet speed for supporting the various applications and services.
Moreover, the increasing need for a high-speed internet connection to speed up the applications and the work-related activities is giving a further boost to the market growth.
Technological restraint is the major problem faced by market players in the global WiGig market. The current technology runs on frequencies over 60Hz; but at present, the frequencies used in the current WiFi products are only between 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz only. Due to this, there is a need for the up-gradation of the current infrastructure, which will be a huge capital investment for the customers.
The Asia-Pacific WiGig market is projected to be one of the key regions for the WiGig market and also predicted to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. This is owing to the presence of a dominant number of WiGig producers in this region. Moreover, the presence of growing economies, such as China and India in this region is further anticipated to drive the regional market growth in the coming years. Additionally, the growing acceptance of the third-party platforms by various types of enterprises, coupled with favorable government initiatives are further projected to drive the Asia-Pacific WiGig Market in the coming years.
The North America WiGig market held a significant market share in the global market in 2019. This can be majorly attributed to the rising adoption of various wireless communication standards, along with an increasing presence of large companies operating in the semiconductor sector in this region.
