About Wi-Fi Extenders
A wireless range extender takes an existing signal from a wireless router or wireless access point (AP) and rebroadcasts it to create a second network. A user can opt for the extender to either clone the existing network or make a distinct hotspot with its own network name and password. Opting for the former means the extender will use the same network name and password as that of the router. The second type of network is created for the lobby or conference rooms of an office. This is for visitors to be able to use Wi-Fi without being on the private network. When two or more hosts must be connected to one another over the IEEE 802.11 protocol and the distance is too long for a direct connection to be established, a wireless extender is used to bridge the gap. It can be a specialized stand-alone computer networking device.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global wi-fi extender market to grow at a CAGR of 15.94% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global wi-fi extender market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of wi-fi extenders.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Wi-Fi Extender Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global Wi-Fi extender market: D-Link, Huawei, Linksys, NETGEAR, and TP-Link
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Actiontec Electronics, Amped Wireless, Asus, Buffalo Technology, Comtrend, devolo, Edimax Technology, NetComm Wireless, Sagemcom, Securifi, Tenda, Ubee Interactive, and Zyxel
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The trend of Internet gaming is gaining extensive popularity. The Internet traffic almost doubled in 2015 and will be growing seven times by 2020. Since many years, gaming on demand and streaming gaming platforms have been in the development stage, with many released in the years 2014 and 2015.”
According to the report, the global urban population had already reached around 4 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach almost 6.5 billion by the end of 2050. Sustainable urbanization involves improved infrastructure, conservation of resources, and betterment of the quality of life. The concept of a smart city incorporates information technologies and machine to machine (M2M) communications to fundamentally improve Internet service offerings with the help of enhanced infrastructure facilities. It urges content security policies (CSPs) to provide better support and a channel to monitor and maintain complex networks.
Further, the report states that the Internet is the backbone of the IoT devices market. IoT devices require reliable, high-speed Internet connectivity to function effectively. Many countries such as the US, the UK, and Japan have an advanced Internet infrastructure. However, other countries lack the basic infrastructure for Internet connectivity. In suburban areas and highways, where the quality of the network is usually poor, mobile network operators need to build solutions to offer connectivity to IoT devices in these areas. This challenge has the highest impact on the consumer segment. This is because individual consumers cannot have access to high-speed Internet everywhere.
