Some of the key players in the home netwoprking device market are ASUSTeK Computer Inc., TP-Link Technologies Co., Belkin International, ZyXEL Communications Corp., and Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd.

Home networking devices are used to set up a local area network (LAN) in order to connect personal devices. The market is segmented on the basis of solution and component. The solution segmentation comprises wired and wireless home networking devices. Wired and wireless devices are further divided on the basis of technology into network line, powerline, Wi-Fi and, ZigBee and Z-Wave. This detailed segmentation indicates the upcoming trend in the market according to technological evolution. Wired home networking devices are connected through a network cable and electrical wires. Network line sub-segment consists of MoCA certified products which work on coaxial cable. Powerline-based home networking devices consist of adapters which convert home electrical wiring into network line for transferring data. Increasing use of Wi-Fi enabled connected devices is expected to support the demand for Wi-Fi based home networking devices. 

The component segmentation covers the complete range of products required for the functioning of a home network. Hub and switch, router, extender, adapter, and wireless access point (WAP) are the products covered under this segmentation. The revenue of each component segment is inclusive of both wired and wireless home networking devices. Demand for hubs and switches are expected to decline in the coming years owing to low demand for wired home networking devices. However, the demand for routers and adapters is expected to increase due to increase in demand for wireless home networking devices.
