Growing number of netizens in India have positively affected in the growth of India’s Telecommunication market. Further, increasing demand for mobility, ease of connectivity and cost-effectiveness of wireless network has spurred the market for Wi-Fi USB adapters in India.
According to 6Wresearch, India Wi-Fi USB Adapter shipments registered 0.24 million units during CY H2 2014. TP-Link led the market followed by Digisol and Leoxsys. In CY H2 2014, in connectivity segment, USB 2.0 interface registered around 90% share of the total market. However, in the coming quarters, demand for USB 3.0 connectivity is likely to increase due to its ability to provide higher throughput transfer speed as compared to the USB 2.0 Wi-Fi USB Adapters.
Note: Others include 433 MBPS, 1200 MBPS, 600 MBPS and other wireless transmission rate
According to Pulkit Shrivastava (Research Analyst, 6Wresearch-India Electronics Division), “Over the past few years, wireless connectivity has developed into a norm for networking in SMBs, resulting in the uptake of Wi-Fi USB Adapters in the country. In addition, superior responsiveness, low installation and maintenance cost, and easier network expansion as compared to the wired networks have increased the usage of Wi-Fi USB Adapters in the India market”.
He further quoted, “In terms of data transfer speed and security, wireless network still lags superior performance as compared to the wired network. However, recent launch of IEEE 802.11ac standard has certainly bridged this gap.”
India’s Wi-Fi USB Adapter market is still in its nascent stage. The market is expected to grow at a higher rate in the coming quarters due to the continuous technical advancements and rising consumer awareness. However, increasing usage of bluetooth and USB mobile hotspots remains the major hindrance in the growth of India Wi-Fi USB Adapters market.
