Home networks to grow 20% CAGR by 2010

The worldwide installed base of home networks will rise by over 20 percent CAGR from 2005 to 2010, and the growth will be mostly driven by Asia, and China, according to a recent In-Stat report. The demand for networking non-PC consumer electronics devices will power the growth of worldwide home networks and network-capable devices.

"The average number of PCs in a household is on the rise, and currently stands at approximately 2.4 networked PCs per average U.S. household with a home network," says In-Stat's Joyce Putscher. "By 2010, we expect that average to climb to about 2.6 per household. The more PCs in a household, the greater the likelihood that the household will have, or install, a home network."
