Market news: BLE and Wifi Direct
Wifi Direct and Bluetooth Low Energy shipments will exceed 2 Billion each in 2016..
According to ABI Research forecasts, Wi-Fi Direct device shipments will experience a 50% CAGR from 2011 to 2016 and ship in 2 billion devices in 2016. Not to be outdone, total BLE device shipments (both dual and single mode) will grow at a 61% CAGR to ship 2.9 billion devices in 2016.
This is not surprising since Bluetooth Low Enegy and Wifi hardware will be in most mobile devices in the next couple of years. The true question is whether Wifi Direct will win over Bluetooth 3.0 + High Speed or Apple Airplay. ABI seems to think Wifi Direct will be the technology of choice. We will keep you updated as this question is one BlueCreation is following up on very closely as we roll out our Wifi IP.
