WiGig Segmentation

Application (Networking Infrastructure Devices, Display Devices)

The display devices segment is predicted to account for 70% share of the global WiGig market during the forecast period owing to the growing usage in docking stations. A laptop can be connected to numerous auxiliary devices such as displays via a docking station, which turns it into a multipurpose workstation that increases productivity and helps to provide high and dedicated bandwidth for quick data transfers. To connect to all of the gadgets, docking stations frequently need additional cables and attachments which necessitates the use of WiGig-enabled docking stations since it allows for quick and easy docking of WiGig-capable PCs. Moreover, a monitor, projector, or other display device that is attached to a WiGig dock can be wirelessly connected to the PC which can act as the display device's central processing unit for receiving human input data from the display device via the same WiGig communication network.

In addition, WiGig will extend its multi-gigabit speeds and expand capacity to network infrastructure equipment, which are generally classified into routers, adapters, and backhaul stations.

Standard (802.11 ad, 802.11 ay)

The 802.11 ay segment is set to garner a notable share shortly. 802.11ay is a type of WLAN in the IEEE 802.11 set of WLANs which has a frequency of 60 GHz and is designed to run at much higher frequencies. The 802.11ay protocol is intended to function at frequencies far higher than 6GHz, with a transmission rate of around 39 Gbps and a longer transmission range of more than 200 meters. IEEE states that 802.11ay is an expansion of 802.11ad, commonly referred to as WiGig, which is said to create a composite bandwidth of 8.64GHz by combining four 802.11ad channels.

End-User (Retail and Consumer Goods, IT and Telecommunications, Media and Entertainment, Healthcare, Aerospace and Defense)

The media and entertainment segment in the WiGig market is poised to gain a noteworthy share in the coming years. WiGig was created to replace cables in home entertainment systems since it enhances virtual reality, gaming, and multimedia streaming over Wi-Fi, and allows for lightning-fast streaming media and extremely quick data transfers. WiGig enables lag-free, uninterrupted streaming of 4K video, and offers high-speed, low-latency connections which streamers and gamers long for. It guarantees seamless gameplay and provides an amazing user experience.
