REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In a newly released market forecast report by Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, enterprise Wireless LAN (WLAN) market revenues are expected to increase more than 75 percent over 2010 levels in the next five years, and this growth is forecast to propel the overall WLAN market to $7.5 billion by 2015.
"The wireless LAN market rebounded quickly from the economic recession, with 2010 revenue levels easily surpassing those of 2008 and 2009," said Loren Shalinsky, Senior Analyst of Wireless LAN research at Dell'Oro Group. "The growth in the number of Wi-Fi enabled devices and the desire for untethered access to data is driving the expansion of the WLAN infrastructure. Service providers continue to expand their affiliated network of hotspots, and IT departments continue to build-out new WLAN infrastructure and upgrade previous installations to accommodate users' desires. WLAN product introductions persist, as WLAN chipsets optimize their cost structure and enhance their feature sets, providing some of the necessary enhancements that WLAN vendors can capitalize upon," added Shalinsky.
The report also indicates that the small office/home office (SOHO) WLAN market will continue to grow, with unit shipments rising in each year of the forecast.
