Archived report. Home area networks refer to networks deployed in residential premises using wired or wireless technologies. Device use is becoming increasingly sophisticated globally as competition and cooperation between network operators and consumer electronics manufacturers continues to increase.
As home networking matures from being PC- and media-centric using devices such as digital TVs, DVRs, set-top boxes, Smart TVs, game consoles, smart meters - the need for more connectivity will be required. We will need to incorporate a variety of consumer electronic devices that require connectivity to the smart homes of the future. The rollout of National Broadband Networks in some parts of the world and the integration of smart grids will further drive the home area network market.
In this report we provide an overview of the global market for the various components of home networks as well as an analysis of developments and selected statistical estimates.
