Global Wi-Fi Chipset Market Overview

Factors that are driving the growth of the market include the growing demand for WIGIG in wireless technology. The Wireless Gigabit Alliance (WiGig) was a trade association that developed and promoted the adoption of multi-gigabit per second-speed wireless communications technology operating over the unlicensed 60 GHz frequency band. The alliance was subsumed by the Wi-Fi Alliance in 2013. This Alliance consists of famous technology companies, including Cisco, Dell, Huawei Technologies, Intel, Apple, Microsoft, NEC, NVIDIA, etc. WiGig technology is more advanced in terms of speed and data transfer as compared to Wi-Fi.

Another factor that is expected to benefit the market is the heavy utilization of WIFI in the public and private sectors. With the increasing demand for wireless connectivity, the public and private sector both, are working towards making internet connectivity more accessible in the community. Public Wi-Fi is a great opportunity for governments to connect entire cities. Smart cities deploying free Wi-Fi are largely increasing and as a result, can effectively empower their communities with better services. Another advantage that public Wi-Fi access brings for the community is education facilities in a more accessible form. Those who can’t afford internet at home, can benefit from a free connection and use it to access public services, look for jobs and access professional educational databases.

A factor that is expected to hinder the growth of the Wi-Fi Chipset market is the existence of cyber and security threats. In spite of making sustainable progress, the Wi-Fi chipset market suffers from a perpetual threat of data breaches and security risks. The reliability of internet connectivity is less due to advanced hacking systems prevalent in the cyber network. In spite of security measures such as WEP and WPA, the cases of data leaks and hacking have been prevalent. Wi-Fi connections are an open portal for hackers where access to personal information can cause huge losses.
