Global Residential Routers Market Size (2020 – 2025)

The global residential routers market is expected to register a CAGR of 7.12% during the outlook period (2020 - 2025).

A residential gateway is a small, consumer grade router that provides network access between hosts on the local area network (LAN) to a wide area network (WAN) through a modem. The modem may or may not be integrated into the hardware of the residential gateway. The benefits associated with wired routers such as more stable connection than wireless routers is foreseen to promote this market demand.

There is a significant increase in demand for connected devices such as smartphones, smartwatches and tablets. Since these devices need to be connected to the Internet for most of their functions, the residential router market is set to grow. Additionally, in smart homes, all devices will require an internet connection to function properly.

In addition, the demand for home connectivity will also increase, thus boosting the router market. The market for wired routers is also expected to grow, owing to the growing number of fixed broadband subscribers. The Broadband Commission for Sustainable Development has predicted that the number of fixed broadband subscribers will increase from 884 million in 2016 to 1 billion in 2017.

Recent Developments:

  • March 2019: Netgear launched a new router for gamers, showing that the network company covers all the bases for all types of gamers. The new Nighthawk Pro Gaming XR300 WiFi Router aims to reduce lag for console gamers in particular. The router allows the user to reduce the lag through geographic filtering. Or the user can improve performance by allocating bandwidth to specific applications, such as shows or games.
  • January 2019: D-Link announced that a new 5G NR router will hit the market at the end of 2019, which will only need electricity and a SIM card and eliminate the cable. Instead of connecting the D-Link DWR-2010 5G NR router to a prehistoric coaxial cable, it will simply absorb broadband internet from frequencies below 6GHz and mmWave which 5G will depend on, and distribute it to all connected devices. at home using the proven and already designed local Wi-Fi network to connect.
  • February 2018: Nokia implemented several developments to its home Wi-Fi solution that improves its performance and simplify networks. The new Wi-Fi solution has expanded Nokia's portfolio with beacons and mesh Wi-Fi gateways, offering a new home Wi-Fi portal for service providers.
  • March 2018: Nokia completed the purchase of Unium, a based software company based in Seattle that specializes in addressing wireless network issues for application in residential and mission-critical Wi-Fi applications.

Market Growth and Trends:

Gigabit Ethernet represents the largest market share

  • Gigabit Ethernet was introduced in 1999, but gained popularity in 2010. With the increasing use of Wi-Fi enabled devices and devices in homes, the need for networking is likely to expand beyond the capacity of the basic Wi-Fi router. Additionally, with an increase in the number of devices, bandwidth and traffic will increase which, if left unattended, can overload the router. Gigabit routers have become the most viable solution to solve this problem.
  • To have a Gigabit Ethernet connection, the router and cable must support Gigabit Ethernet. The Gigabit Ethernet limit is 1 Gbit/s, but in reality, the speed ranges from 45 to 100 Mbit/s. Actual speed varies due to a few factors, such as cable quality, number of terminals, and amount of traffic.
  • Asia-Pacific is supposed to hold the most substantial growth rate over the outlook period. The region has a high population density with an increase in the disposable income of the population. Emerging economies such as India and China are expected to drive the region's market. The purchasing power of the people living in these countries has increased in recent years. Also, with the arrival of smart cities and homes in these countries, the market for residential routers will increase.

Market Drivers and Restraints:

The growing attraction for home connectivity and home offices will help drive the global residential router market during the forecast period. A residential router is a type of network device. It is a small, high-power router that provides network access between hosts from the local area network (LAN) to a wide area network (WAN) through a modem. The growing adoption of the Internet and the high demand for connected devices are the main drivers of the global residential router market.

In recent years, there has been a significant increase in demand for connected devices, such as smartphones, smartwatches, and tablets. As these devices need to be connected to the internet for most of their functions, the residential router market is destined to grow. Also, in smart homes, all devices will require an internet connection to function properly. In the future, the demand for home connectivity will only increase, thus boosting the router market. Increased digitization will also help the market as the concept of digitization will not be successful without the Internet and to connect all devices to the Internet, the router is a must. The new COVID-19 pandemic has crippled the world, affecting important operations and causing industrial disaster.

The growing rate of smart home adoption, with 30 million homes in the US, is also helping the wireless router market. Several state governments are boosting the smart home adoption rate. In 2016, the US government launched a program, "ConnectALL," to help Americans of all income levels use online tools and services to get the most out of the Internet. Thus, this initiative promotes market penetration of fixed broadband services.

Altice Group, a European telecommunications giant, acquired Suddenlink Communications to enter the US market and rebranded itself Altice USA. Additionally, Frontier acquired Verizon's Wireline assets in three western states for nearly $ 10.5 billion.
