Household consumer electronics (CE) continued shifting to connected devices in 2011. Successful connected products include digital TV, satellite set-top boxes, game consoles, and Blu-ray player/recorders. NPD In-Stat has forecast that the connected device installed base will grow from 256.8 million units in 2011 to 1.34 billion units in 2016.

“CE is no longer about ‘dumb’ devices that exist at the edge of the network to provide specific functions, but rather about ‘intelligent’ devices at the edge of the network that can connect consumers to new stores of content and engage them in new digital experiences,” said Norm Bogen, vice president of Research. "This simple fact is having a profound impact on the development of the digital media and entertainment industry, which clings to the old practices of using networks to control the user viewing experience.”

The research firm reported that:
• The global installed base of smart devices will grow 52.6% annually during 2011 - 2016.
• The market will be led by game consoles, with 36.7 million units to ship in 2016.
• The installed base in Eastern Europe is expected to be 79.2 million devices in 2016.
• 37.1% of CE devices shipped globally during this period will go to the Asia Pacific region.
