This publication has been discontinued on May 9, 2015.

Worldwide wired home networking node shipments will grow by nearly 272.5% from 2011 to 2016, representing a 30.1% CAGR over the period. Several main factors will drive explosive growth for the market, but service provider deployments and embedded home networking technologies in a plethora of consumer devices will be the main keys to market growth. In addition, a number of technology innovations will make it easier for consumers to take advantage of the benefits offered by a hybrid home network, containing both wired and wireless solutions.

Whereas MoCA will be the leading wired home networking technology in North America over the forecast period, Western and Eastern Europe, and the Asia Pacific region will be led by deployments of HomePlug. However, the rapid growth of in the Asia Pacific market, after its trials and commercial launch in 2012, promises to propel to become a major competitor to HomePlug and other technologies over an extended forecast period beyond 2016.
