WiGig Market Trends

Gaming and Multimedia Expected to Drive the Market

  • The more complex online multiplayer games educate players on strategically and analytically assessing risk and reward. These games require young players to react fast to game changes. Children gain from this game because the abilities learned can be applied to real-world careers that require problem-solving, analytical skills, and strategic thinking. Games may be a terrific method for children to learn about diverse ideas and cultures since they allow them to immerse themselves in virtual worlds and, at times, communicate with people from all over the world. Such trends would raise the demand for the wireless gigabit market in gaming.
  • In recent years, the internet ecosystem has initiated course correction by end-to-end local game development. For instance, Zynga's shift from social to mobile meant several tough years, but in February 2022, it reported Q4 revenue of USD 727 million, up by 52% year-over-year. It launched its free game Farmville-3 in June 2019, but the Flash-based game created by Zynga was primarily designed to be played within Facebook.
  • According to the Mobile Video Industry Council, mobile operators expected cloud gaming to represent 25-50% of 5G data traffic by 2022, owing to the quick progression of cloud gaming services in recent months. Over-the-top (OTT) players also have ambitious plans to become the 'Netflix for gaming,' hosting libraries of thousands of immediately accessible games that will ultimately consume three to four times the amount of bandwidth on 5G networks compared to standard definition video traffic. Such high bandwidth will require the use of WiGig in coming future.
  • Additionally, According to Microsoft, Microsoft's online gaming service had around 120 million monthly active users as of December 2022, up from just under 40 million at the start of 2016. The service was previously known as Xbox Live until being rebranded as Xbox Network in March 2023 to distinguish it from the Xbox Live Gold subscription service offering. Such a rise in demand for online consoles is expected to drive the studied market.
  • Furthermore, In January 2023, the Razer Edge will be available in the United States through Verizon. The Razer Edge is powered by a Snapdragon G3x Gen 1 processor, which appears to be based on the Snapdragon 888. The 6.8" AMOLED display with 2,400 x 1,080px resolution (20:9) and 144Hz refresh rate provides it an advantage (heh) over the likes of the Steam Deck and the Nintendo Switch. In comparison, the Switch OLED has a 7-inch display, and the Steam Deck has a 7-inch LCD, but both feature just 720p resolution and run at 60Hz.
