The WiGig market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 18.67% reaching a market size of US$71.221 billion in 2029 from US$21.489 billion in 2022.

WiGig, is a wireless network technology that enables multi-gigabit communication between devices without the need for cables. It empowers superior execution of remote information, show, and sound. The name WiGig comes from the Wireless Gigabit Alliance, which was formed to promote the adoption of IEEE 802.11ad, the current WiGig standard. The WiGig specification supports data transmission rates up to 7 Gbit/s, which is over eleven times faster than the current Wi-Fi standard. WiGig is expected to enable wireless connectivity of up to 7Gbps in data, display, and audio. 

WiGig Market Trends:

The WiGig market will be experiencing significant growth over the next five years. Key players in the market include Panasonic Corporation, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., Intel Corporation, and Broadcom Inc. As the demand for high-speed wireless data, display, and audio increases, the WiGig market is expected to continue to expand. However, increased levels of IT spending and changing budget distribution will drive infrastructure needs.

WiGig Market Drivers:

Increasing use of high-speed internet connectivity

High-speed, reliable, and resilient connectivity is becoming more and more in demand as a result of the growing digital transformation. WiGig is superior to other technologies because it offers high-speed connections with lower latency for applications like gaming, streaming 8K videos, video conferencing, and AR/VR. The adoption of wireless gigabit devices is largely due to its relative affordability and flexibility, which make it easy to scale networks to meet changing business needs. Additionally, it provides a full range of easily set up and manageable security and control options that enable seamless device launch.

Furthermore, as more people are using laptops, desktop computers, and cell phones for work purposes, there is an increasing need for high network capacity and internet speed to support the vast array of applications and services. As a result, the increasing need for high-speed internet connections to process applications and work-related activities more quickly is driving market growth.

Rising government investments

Public Wi-Fi is helping to achieve several smart city goals, such as closing the digital divide, facilitating the Internet of Things (IoT), and offering amenities and services to both locals and visitors. The primary driver of the market's expansion is the growing investments being made in smart cities by various national government agencies. Furthermore, a lot of businesses are using wireless gigabit devices so that staff members can finish their work from various devices without using a cable. In addition, it facilitates the seamless operation of bandwidth-intensive applications, the effective connection of office networks, the transfer of big files, and the widescreen display of images and video in conference rooms. Furthermore, in public kiosk services, wireless gigabit devices enable the use of wireless docking between smartphones, laptops, projectors, and tablets.

Increased preference of BYOD policies

The market for WiGig is expected to be driven in the future by the growing inclination of organizations operating in different end-use industries towards Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies. Businesses can increase their IT infrastructure budgets to boost network speed thanks to the BYOD trend. A significant reliance on high bandwidth and internet speed is being created by the increasing use of smartphones, laptops, desktop computers, and other electronic devices at work to support the numerous apps and services. Additionally, the market is expanding due to the growing need for a high-speed internet connection to expedite work-related activities and applications.

High demand from gaming industry

The more intricate online multiplayer games teach players to evaluate risk and reward analytically and strategically. Young players must respond quickly to game changes to win these games. Kids benefit from this game because the skills they acquire can be used in real-world jobs that call for analytical thinking, problem-solving, and strategic thinking. Since games let kids interact with people from all over the world and immerse themselves in virtual worlds, they may be an excellent way for kids to learn about a variety of concepts and cultures. Gaming-related wireless gigabit market demand would increase as a result of these trends.

Through end-to-end local game development, the internet ecosystem has started a course correction in recent years. For example, Zynga had some difficult years after switching from social to mobile, but in February 2022, the company reported Q4 revenue of USD 727 million, up 52% from the previous year. In June 2019, Zynga released Farmville-3, a free game that was primarily meant to be played on Facebook. Farmville-3 is a Flash-based game.

WiGig Market Geographical Outlook:

Asia Pacific is witnessing exponential growth during the forecast period

The Asia Pacific region is expected to hold a significant share of the WiGig market due to various factors. The Asia Pacific region has a large population and a growing demand for high-speed internet connectivity. WiGig's high-speed wireless connectivity makes it well-suited to meet this demand. The region is experiencing a greater demand of IoT devices which is driving the demand for WiGig. WiGig's multi-gigabit speeds make it ideal for IoT applications, enabling improved performance and reduced power consumption of IoT devices. WiGig's high-speed wireless connectivity makes it well-suited for wireless devices, as it can improve the performance and efficiency of these devices.
