Wi-Fi Chipset Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Increasing Adoption of Computers - The number of households to have a computer is projected to reach 1,262,47 million by 2025, as stated in the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development survey. The word computer household shall refer to a house with one or more computers. The market participants will have an opportunity to increase their product portfolio for Wi-Fi chipsets, extend their presence in various regions, and achieve greater market share as a result of the increased adoption of computers.
  • Increasing Trend for Working from Home - In accordance with the global demand for electronics like laptops and desktops for the expanding work-from-home trend, the semiconductor sector began to revive. South Korea kept up its steady growth, as chip exports increased by 9.4% in February 2020.
  • Growing Amount of Public Wi-Fi Hotspots and Implementation of internet-of-things-IoT  Due to the massive increase in connected devices, the mobile network is expected to experience more congestion during the projection period due to the increased demand for more data throughput, bandwidth, and coverage. As a result, it is anticipated that in the years to come, communication service providers and network operators will use Wi-Fi hotspot solutions at a much higher rate.


  • Decrease in Deliveries of PCs and Tablets - The shipment of PCs and tablets is predicted to decrease by a small amount, with alternatives like phablets and smartphones having a significant impact. This issue could also limit the commercial expansion of Wi-Fi chipsets.
  • Increasing Cyber Crimes
  • Decrease in Data Transfer Rates

Wi-Fi Chipset Segmentation

Chipset Type (Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi 6E, Wi-Fi 7)

The Wi-Fi 6 segment held the largest share of 74% and is expected to grow rapidly during the forecast period. The increase can be attributed to the rising demand for high-performance network connectivity, which enables simultaneous access by multiple users at constant bandwidth requirements for the general public and must manage network congestion due to high network load. It is also projected that the desire for contemporary gadgets that can support new wireless frequency bands like 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz will hasten the adoption of Wi-Fi 6 chipsets.

Protocol (802.11ac, 802.11n, 802.11ax, 802.11b)

802.11ax is anticipated to observe rapid growth. Moreover, 802.11ax held a share of 47% in 2021 and is likely to expand in upcoming years. In the total Wi-Fi chipset market, 802.11ax is anticipated to experience strong expansion. In comparison to all other IEEE 802.11 standards now in use, this standard is anticipated to deliver the maximum spectrum efficiency and is anticipated to have a top speed of roughly 10 Gbps (as evaluated by Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. (China)).
