New USB SuperSpeed for Multimedia Devices

With over three billion devices shipped in 2008 alone, USB is the most successful electronic device interface ever, according to the latest market study by In-Stat.

Fueled by new SuperSpeed technology, also known as USB 3.0, and continued adoption across computing, communication and consumer devices, over 4 billion USB-enabled devices will ship in 2013 -- representing a 6.6 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) compared to 2008.

Highlights from the In-Stat study include:

- Digital TVs with USB will grow to 140 million units shipped in 2013.

- USB-enabled LCD PC monitors will grow to about 70 million units, propelled by a CAGR of over 150 percent.

- Blueray DVD players with USB will see a CAGR of over 90 percent.

These growth segments will complement the enormous volume of markets such as handsets, where internal USB capability can be found in more than 1 billion units shipped annually, and where USB ports are becoming much more common.

"USB dominates its traditional applications while simultaneously spreading into new applications," says Brian O'Rourke, In-Stat analyst.

SuperSpeed USB silicon vendors hope to open up the number of applications, hence increasing the potential for device interaction and enlarging the USB ecosystem.
