Nearly 9 billion wireless connectivity chipsets to ship during 2019 alone

Annual wireless connectivity chipset shipments across Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS, and ZigBee show no sign of slowing down, reaching almost nine billion annual shipments in 2019, finds ABI Research. Had it not been for combo chipsets and integrated platforms the number of chipsets shipped would have been even higher. Cumulative chipset shipments from 2010 through 2014 will have reached over 21 billion; during the next five years from 2015 to 2019, cumulative shipments will almost double to over 39 billion. “That is over 60 billion wireless connectivity chipsets that will have shipped over the ten year span from 2010 to 2019, driven by the emergence of new device types,” said research director Philip Solis. “There is constant change in the wireless connectivity space across wireless connectivity technologies, versions of technologies, and levels of integration at the same time.”
