A rebound after two relatively quiet years

How much money has Wi-Fi equipment for professionals and the general public generated? 17.6 billion dollars in 2020.
The global increase in enterprise spending on wireless networking equipment was +20.4% for the year 2021.

  • Market demand for Wi-Fi 801.11ax is in the majority/

  • Wi-Fi 6 is installed in half of the access points that have been marketed to enterprises!

  • Willingness to engage their Digital Transformation.

The sales of WLAN equipment (enterprise class) was 7.6 billion dollars of turnover over the year. From July to September 2021, there was a 12% increase in value.

A "drop" in demand with the consumer market?

There was an apparent regression of 7.3%. Specifically, less consumer spending on wireless LAN.

And yet, there was a 16% increase in consumer sales in 2020!

The reason? Upgrades of residential equipment.

The pandemic situation has encouraged an upgrade in hardware and solutions for Wi-Fi.

However, sales were already up 12.9% compared to 2019, pre-Covid period.

Less strong growth in the first half of 2021, but with an amount of 20% if compared to the last quarter of 2019.

The demand has therefore remained strong for the general public!
