Research and Markets: Connected Television Peripherals Semiconductor Forecast Report 2012-2018

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/n7m4jw/connected) has announced the addition of the "Connected Television Peripherals Semiconductor Forecast 2012-2018" report to their offering.

Pegs Semiconductor Market for Connected TV Peripherals to reach over $US 10.6 Billion by 2018

The long-ago dream of PC makers trying to merge computers with the entertainment devices in the living room is finally taking place - but not as depicted many years ago. A small connectivity computing device has accomplished the task. It may be incorporated into the television but for better performance and future updates - it should be connected externally. Connected television peripherals enable consumers to access online entertainment, games, Apps, and other content on their new and old televisions at a fraction of the price they were paying for bundled entertainment and rental media.

The market for these internet connectivity peripherals is just beginning to grow. Some of these peripherals come as separate small systems or dongles while others are in the process of being incorporated into game consoles, Blu-ray players, and even Set-top boxes. Hundreds of designs will continue to penetrate these and other systems since through their low cost they can encourage consumers to get the latest micro-peripheral that provides more computing power, better connectivity, a higher definition image, and requires less power to run.

It is forecasted that by 2018, the global market for semiconductor components providing the connectivity and application support in connected TV peripherals will reach over 10.6 Billion US Dollars as TV over Internet gains over bundled services and rentals. TV connectivity peripherals that support the user interfaces employing remote controls, second screen devices, voice recognition, and camera will benefit from the increases in demand for connected peripherals.
