A home network or home area network (HAN) is a residential local area network (LAN) for communication between digital devices typically deployed in the home, usually a small number of personal computers and accessories, such as printers and mobile computing devices. An important function is the sharing of Internet access, often a broadband service provisioned by fiber-to-the-home or via Cable Internet Access, Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) or mobile broadband by Internet service providers (ISPs).
Home networking adoption continues to grow in all regions around the world, driven by increased consumer broadband penetration, low networking equipment prices, and increased network device adoption. At the same time, the intensity of home networking usage has risen - driven by networked entertainment applications in developed countries and, on the medium-term horizon, lie more opportunities for expanded networked home activities that will keep the home network a critical part of enabling the digital consumer.
The devices forecasted in the report include shipments for networked entertainment devices such as connected TVs, Blue-ray players, portable media players, game consoles, set-top boxes, smart set-top boxes, digital camera, and camcorders. Networking devices are also included: home routers/gateways and bridges/adapters. The forecasts also include network interfaces, including shipments for Powerline, MoCA, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and HomePNA. Forecasts are reported by region: North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East Africa.
The home networking device global sales grew 20% in 2011 from 2010 to USD 7.98 billion. The cumulative expected growth in the home networking device market is USD 46 billion from 2010 to 2018 as the growth prospects of tablets and other devices in home networks necessitate additional connectivity options.
Tablets, connected TVs, digital media players, and other devices are driving sales of home networking devices. North America had captured 35 percent of networking device revenue in 2011.
Tablets, connected TVs, digital media players, and a growing list of other devices are driving sales of home networking devices.
The demand for broadband peripherals, especially those with integrated MoCAÂ chips, continue to increase globally as operators in all regions roll out new home automation, energy management, entertainment, and communications services that require high-end networking devices. There are alternative networking technologies, which enables the distribution of data and video content over coax and power lines.
