Global Broadband Kit Sales Rocket
By: MarkJ - 04 March, 2005 (12:58 PM)

The latest research from Infonetics reports that customer premise equipment (CPE) broadband kit (modems, routers etc.) sales jumped to $4.6bn in 2004, up 15% on 2003:

In term of units shipped, the total of 73 million last year represented a staggering 74 per cent hike, according to the analyst firm's report.

The study found that broadband equipment revenue hit $1.16bn in the fourth quarter of 2004, down seven per cent from the previous quarter, despite unit growth of 17 per cent to 23.3 million.

Broadband growth continues to accelerate around the world, the report noted, fuelling unit growth. Unit shipments are projected to soar 191 per cent to almost 200 million, and revenue will grow 28 per cent to $5.6bn between 2004 and 2008.

Unsurprisingly it's the xDSL hardware sales that account for most of the boom. More @ VNUNet.
