Wi-Fi 6 Market Key Drivers, Challenges, Applications, Market Size, Outlook

Jun 23, 2021 | Author : Anshika Jain


Wi-Fi technology is based on the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) wireless communication standard 802.11 and is used by over 16 billion active devices globally. 802.11ax is the sixth generation of IEEE wireless communication standard dubbed as Wi-Fi 6 build to deliver better reliability and higher efficiency. Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) focuses on increasing efficiency by using Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA), MU-MIMO; beamforming, which enables higher data rates at a given range to increase network capacity; and 1024 quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM), which increases throughput for emerging applications.

The Wi-Fi 6 shipments are expected to grow at a CAGR of 162% p.a. over the coming 5 years. Security Camera, Smart TV, Smart Speaker, and Gaming Console are some of the biggest categories in the Wi-Fi 6 segment which are expected to drive huge volumes by 2025. This report gives a comprehensive overview of the Wi-Fi 6 market comparing it with previous generations along with key drivers, challenges, applications, market size and outlook by various categories.
