Telco TV and Eco-Awareness Motivate Powerline Equipment Growth

By Michelle Robart, TMCnet Editor

New research from In-Stat found that the broadband powerline networking equipment market increased more than 50 percent in 2008, mainly driven by service providers.
However, governments are seeking ways to make their existing power generation grid and assets suffice without creating additional generation plants, which may become a major motivator for powerline technology in the near future.

"While powerline retail markets will suffer with a global recession, less impact will be felt from the service provider and utility sectors, resulting in continued growth through 2012," says Joyce Putscher, In-Stat (News - Alert) analyst.

The high-tech research firm also discovered that in 2007, worldwide equipment shipments based on Home-Plug and non-HomePlug broadband powerline hit close to 10 million units.

In addition, Devolo AG was ranked number one again in worldwide annual equipment market shares.

Governments in Europe, China, and the U.S. have planned funding for smart grid applications.

The research report, entitled, "Global Powerline Home Networking Update: Growing In Spite of the Economy,” analyzes the worldwide market for powerline home networking.
It provides covers market trends and expected progress, opportunities, segmentations, market sizing, and consumer survey results. Worldwide forecasts include unit segmentation by geographic region, product categories, technology/protocol, bandwidth, PHY/MAC chipset ASP, retail vs. service provider channel, and in-home networking vs. access/MDU/utility use.

Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC (News - Alert)) recently reported that IPTV (News - Alert) usage will motivate high-speed broadband connection prices to fall and more users will start adopting multimedia services.

But as technology progresses and matures, developing countries such as China will rapidly catch up in subscription numbers.”
