Global Smartphone Sales Forecast by WiFi Technology to 2027

Report Summary:

The modern smartphone incorporates dozens of different wireless and wired technologies for charging, connections and communication.  Excepting cellular technologies such as 5G, perhaps no wireless technology is more used by consumers with smartphones than WiFi.

WiFi 5 (802.11ac) remains the most used standard in smartphones, but new standards are emerging, such as 802.11ax, which promises faster data speeds, lower battery consumption and improved QoS.

This report forecasts global WiFi handset sales by 13 WiFi standards and other WiFi technologies from 2010 to 2027. The report can be used by operators, handset vendors, component suppliers, software makers, app developers and other stakeholders to determine or prioritize the size and growth rate of the global WiFi handset market.
