“Connected devices” are devices that have the ability to connect directly to the Internet or to a home network and can deliver IP-based video content. This report forecasts the market through 2016 for connected devices in six regions. This report also includes a forecast of “smart devices,” a subset of connected devices that have the ability to access content from outside a controlled, walled garden. Smart devices are also forecast through 2016 in the same six regions and for the same CE devices. Forecasts are for shipments and installed base by device and by region.

With this report clients can
- Determine worldwide broadband subscription data
- Track regional population growth trends
- Develop strategic marketing plans based on regional shipment forecasts by connected device type
- Create product roadmaps based on worldwide installed base of smart CE devices

The consumer electronics devices included in this forecast are:
- All types of digital set top boxes
- Digital video recorders
- Blu-ray players/recorders
- Video game consoles
- Streaming media players

This report includes a comprehensive analysis of the market for connected and smart CE devices in the home, including set top boxes, personal video recorders, Blu-ray players and recorders, digital TVs, video game consoles, and streaming media players. It provides a five-year market forecast for device shipments, connected and smart device shipments, and the connected and smart device installed base for six geographic regions: North America, Caribbean and Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific.

In Addition, the Report Provides:
- A definition for connected and smart devices and segments the market into three different distinctive groups: STBs, media devices, and computing devices. It also provides a brief discussion of the main trends in each of these segments and sub-segments that affects its competitive positioning in the smart connected device market.
- Global demographics for six geographic regions, including population, households, and average number of people per household.
- Forecasts for multiple communications technologies in the home by technology and region, including broadband, pay-TV, and home networking.
- The addressable market for connected and smart devices.
- A discussion of the key battlefronts, which belie inherent tensions between different industries competing in the connected and smart device market, including pay-TV STBs vs. CE vendors, non-TV CE vendors vs. TV vendors, CE vendors vs. computing vendors, and the home digital media network vs. the home computing network.
- It provides shipment and installed base forecasts for consumer computing and network-attached storage devices for the home.
- It establishes the key conditions that will affect the growth of the market with respect to consumer adoption and usage.

This research report aggregates numerous top-line CE device, broadband, pay-TV, and home networking forecasts from In-Stat reports published throughout 2011. The brief market descriptions for each of the CE device categories are summaries of previously published reports.

For “connected” devices, In-Stat calculated the number of devices that were both network-enabled and Web-enabled. Network-enabled shipment forecasts were based on previously published research and analysis that determined the percent of each group of devices that had either Wi-Fi and/or Ethernet capability. Web-enabled shipment forecasts were calculated based on vendor interviews, conducted during 2011, along with expert analyst opinions. Regional shipment breakdowns were calculated using previously published regional splits.

Additional data was acquired from primary and secondary sources, including vendor websites, government data, industry journals, newsletters, blogs, and message boards. These sources include, but are not limited to: International Monetary Fund; World Economic Outlook Database, September 2011; and ITU World Telecommunications/ICT Indicators 2009 Database.

The aggregation of connected and smart CE device shipments, and the calculation of a global base forecast, offers a unique bottom-up view of the emerging global smart connected CE device market. The research was not designed to offer a detailed examination of specific market segments.
