The global residential gateway market size reached US$ 5.47 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, the analyst expects the market to reach US$ 8.05 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 6.6% during 2023-2028. The increasing demand for high-speed and reliable internet connectivity, the widespread uptake of various consumer electronic devices, and the rising need for internet protocol television (IPTV) and broadband connection represent some of the key factors driving the market.
A residential gateway, or home router, is a compact consumer-grade device that acts as a single point of access and is configured to facilitate the connection of a local area network (LAN) to a wide area network (WAN) through the modem. It usually operates as a mediator between several digital home networks and access providers. It further encompasses a range of built-in routers, ethernet ports, and wireless access points, which helps in connecting with several consumer electronic products, such as laptop, desktop, printers, and tablets. Residential gateway does not require complex network setups to operate, and it offers simplified access to multiple networks that ensure seamless interconnection between diverse external and internal networks. Apart from this, a residential gateway provides optimal security, better connectivity, and enhanced domain control. Based on these properties, a residential gateway is widely utilized in households to access internet, cable, and telephone services delivered to the home.
Residential Gateway Market Trends:
The increasing demand for high-speed and reliable internet connectivity and the widespread uptake of various consumer electronic devices, such as Wi-Fi, television (TV), and smartphones in the residential sector, are prime factors currently driving the market growth. In line with this, the rising need for internet protocol television (IPTV) and broadband connection and the growing popularity of streaming services during the COVID-19 pandemic due to their vast content library and minimal monthly subscription rates are creating a positive outlook for the market. This can be further attributed to the significant expansion in the media and entertainment sector and the emergence of over-the-top (OTT) platforms. Additionally, the shifting consumer inclination toward smart homes has facilitated the utilization of residential gateway in households, which is supporting the market growth. These devices are extensively employed to operate multiple smart home interconnected devices, such as connected thermostats, security cameras, and door locks, to offer optimal comfort, convenience, and security to the users. Moreover, the advent of 4K/8K ultra-high-definition (Ultra HD) video streaming services and the integration of the Internet of Things (IoT) with smart devices are propelling the market growth. Other factors, such as the recent launch of new services by network operators, the emergence of local network technologies, and the fabrication of international common standards, are creating a positive outlook for the market.
