In-Stat research forecasts the total USB-enabled device shipments will approach 600 crore in 2015.

 USB-enabled device

From beginning to end 2010, USB continued its run as the most successful interface ever, with over 350 crore devices shipping worldwide in the PC, PC peripheral, consumer electronic (CE), communications, and automotive product segments.

Today there are three different specifications to handle additional speed and data requirements, and although not all have met with the same amount of success, each plays a significant role in connecting a myriad of electronic devices.

According to the report, low-speed and full-speed USB-enabled device unit shipments peaked in 2010 with over 87 crore units. In 2013, Super-Speed USB will have an attach rate of 70 per cent in Blu-ray players. Over 3.8 crore broadband routers will ship with High-Speed USB capability in 2015. In 2015, 28 per cent of all USB-enable devices will ship with SuperSpeed USB capability.

"The transition to SuperSpeed USB is occurring more quickly than we anticipated last year, due to quicker integration of the new standard into core logic chipsets," according to Brian O'Rourke, research director. "USB will grow at over 7 per cent through 2015 with most of that growth coming from SuperSpeed devices, particularly after 2011. Both low-/full-speed and high-speed USB will remain relevant throughout the forecast period as well. Low-/full-speed will remain the interface of choice in HIDs, and high-speed will remain in many PC peripheral and CE applications."
