Sales For Wi-Fi Chips Look Strong Through 2009

Worldwide sales of Wi-Fi chips are expected to surge to $3 billion by 2009.

Worldwide sales of Wi-Fi chips are expected to surge to $3 billion by 2009, driven primarily by the increasing number of products utilizing the technology, a market research firm said.

The revenues are expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate of 21 percent through 2009, International Data Corp. said. Sales last year reached $1.2 billion.

Increased competition is expected to hold prices down, but demand for chips for low-power consumption, quality of service mechanisms and use in mobile phones are expected to be high, IDC said.

Among vendors in 2004, Broadcom led the pack in Wi-Fi-chip revenues, followed, in order, by Atheros, Intel, Conexant/GlobespanVirata and Texas Instruments.
