The market for short range wireless ICs - including Bluetooth, NFC, UWB, 802.15.4, and Wi-Fi – is booming, and ABI Research predicts it will show an increase of 18% in 2010.

Bluetooth ICs lead the short range wireless IC market and are expected to exceed 55% of total short range wireless IC shipments in 2010. The cellular handset segment shows the highest unit shipments of Bluetooth-enabled products, with notebooks and UMDs following far behind.

Bluetooth-enabled home entertainment devices are an emerging market that is driving increased Bluetooth IC shipments, and ABI expects networked and handheld game consoles to see wide adoption.
