The Wireless Router Market is segmented by Standard (802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n,), Component Type (Products and Services), End User (Residential and Commercial), and Region.
Fastest Growing Market:
The Wireless Router market was valued at USD 9751.88 million in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 15,442.6 million by 2025, at a CAGR of 8.4% over the forecast period 2020 - 2025. Increasing consumer demand for web-enabled devices and growth in the IP traffic are the fundamental market drivers. Moreover, increasing need for faster internet connectivity among consumers, which has deteriorated because of the rise in the number of devices being connected to the device, is spurring the demand for wireless routers with effective connectivity.
A wireless router is a device that provides access to the internet, or computers, laptops, and tablets to a network. It allows users to share an internet connection, files, or printers in a local area network (LAN). In addition, a wireless router connects a LAN to a wide area network (WAN), such as the internet. A wireless router largely eliminates the need for awkward, unsightly wires, and allows multiple users to connect to a LAN and WAN.

When compared to 802.11a standards, a major competitor to 802.11b at the time of deployment, there are several drawbacks identified in 802.11b routers. It is slower and can cause high interference at the location of implementation as it operates in 2.4 GHz range, like most of the home appliances.
This was a tremendous competitive advantage to the deployment of 802.11a routers for commercial purposes, as they operate in the less crowded 5 GHz frequency band, making it less prone to interference. Unlike many modern standards, like 802.11g/n/ac, 802.11b is not interoperable with 802.11a, which adds to the list of factors that hindered the growth of 802.11b routers.
As of current market scenario, no wireless routers are being manufactured that adhere only to 802.11b standards. They mostly come in combinations with routers that support other standards as well, and are confined to usage in some research and industrial applications only. With further penetration of the internet into rural areas, especially in developing countries, and new amendments in the 802.11 standards, 802.11b is expected to go obsolete over the forecast period.

Globally, the United States is one of the most mature markets for fixed broadband internet connections. By 2017, it was estimated that nearly 95.84 million people had fixed broadband connections. Furthermore, it was estimated that nearly 85.63% of the population had access to networks capable of speeds of 100 Mbps, depicting the need for high-band routers (as of 2017).
The presence of major technological giants, such as Cisco, D-Link, and TP-Link, coupled with the high adoption of technological trends in the country, aided the market for wireless routers. Moreover, the fixed broadband market is mature and is nearing saturation, with more than three out of every four US households anticipated to have a fixed broadband connection by the forecast period.
Consumer demand for fixed broadband access is expected to record sluggish growth. However, owing to the impact of mobile broadband services, it was estimated that more than 3.3 million fixed broadband subscriptions will be added over the forecast period. Furthermore, increasing adoption of smart homes, with 30 million US households, is also favoring the conditions for wireless routers.
