Research and Markets: Consumer Electronic Devices Get Connected to the Home Network: By 2014 Digital Televisions (DTVs) Will Supplant STBs as the Predominant Connected Device

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Consumer Electronic Devices Get Connected to the Home Network" report to their offering.

As refinements are occurring for home networking technologies, and households in developed and emerging markets are experiencing a significant increase in broadband throughput, the trend toward consumer electronics devices being connected is growing.

Within the realm of connected devices, set-top boxes (STBs) (including digital cable, satellite, IP/DSL and digital terrestrial) led the way in 2011. However, by 2014 digital televisions (DTVs) will supplant STBs as the predominant connected device, representing a 37.0% share of the total connected device market in that year.

This report analyzes the consumer electronics devices that are being connected, as well as the networks that support the connectivity, by device type and by region. Presented are worldwide and regional forecasts for Blu-ray devices, video game consoles, DTVs, set-top boxes and streaming media players as well as the number of those devices that are and will be connected.

The deliverable is comprised of a PDF and an accompanying Excel data sheet.
