In many ways, connectable media devices are the primary gateways through which individual consumers experience the wonders of high quality video, audio, video games, and increasingly, print media. Because the devices are the last link in the delivery chain for digital media, much of the value of the digital content experience has been attributed to them. Much of the content delivery paradigm has been settled in developed regions over the last few years.
In order to understand the full market opportunity for connectable devices, it is necessary to understand how the different technologies present in the living room can fit together in a cohesive framework. The way devices are able to interact with each other around the home and how consumers get content to various devices creates a crucial role for all of those involved in the value chain, device makers and service providers especially.
The vast majority of CE devices shipping today are what the author defines as connectable devices; they have the ability to connect directly to home networks and/or the Internet via wireless or wired means. The author expects shipments of connectable devices to grow to roughly 2.5 billion in 2017, representing a compound annual growth rate of 16.5%.
Smartphones were by far and away the largest connectable device segment shipping in 2012, followed by digital televisions, and then notebooks. Tablets will achieve parity with notebooks and surpass digital televisions in shipments beginning in 2015.
By 2017 tablets will be second only to smartphone shipments, representing a combined share of nearly 75% of an increasingly mobile connectable device ecosystem.
Other devices like notebooks, video game consoles, streaming media players and Blu-Ray players all help contribute to the increasing prevalence of connectable devices.
