2004 sees mobile modem market take off.
Industry analyst In-Stat/MDR has reported that 2004 was a boom year for the mobile modem market, with the market growing 167% from 2003 to 2004.
The market research firm said it estimated that the market would be shipping 14m wireless modems by 2009, from 2.5m in 2004. The data was gathered from the first three quarters of 2004 and estimates of fourth quarter results. The company found that initial growth in the future will come from cellular modem cards (PCMCIA cards that are inserted into laptop computers) but will be overtaken by embedded cellular modems by the end of 2009.
A spokesperson for In-Stat/MDR said that the build-up of high-speed wireless 3G networks and UMTS networks has led to the rapid growth in the market, reports Cellular News.
