Connected Consumer Devices to Nearly Triple by 2015
Worldwide shipments of consumer connected devices will jump from 262.1 million last year to 712.1 million in 2015, according to the new Global Consumer Connected Device Market Forecast issued this week by Infinite Research.
“The explosion of connected devices is being driven by consumers seeking on-demand access to movies, music, social networking services, applications (apps), connected services, and other content. Additionally, wireless modules have hit price points that encourage device manufacturers to add internet connectivity to their products," Mark Ritorto, president of Infinite Research, said as part of the announcement.
"This fact, in combination with falling device prices and fundamental demand, is driving consumer adoption of mobile connected devices and connected home electronics."
