MarketsandMarkets estimates the global wireless platforms market in terms of revenues to be worth Rs.3.14 lakh crore ($61.5 billion) in 2011 and expects it to reach Rs.7.92 lakh crore ($155.2 billion) in 2016, growing at a CAGR of 20.3 per cent from 2011 to 2016.

The wireless computing platforms and wireless devices are acting as trendsetters in the wireless market and are becoming an essential ingredient amongst information power users, notes the research firm. With initial functions such as synchronised calendars, contact management, wireless messaging and email that can be preinstalled on these devices, these applications will steadily expand over the coming years as enterprises find new and innovative ways to their workforce more productive by offering ubiquitous access to enterprise data. The number of off-the-shelf systems and tools for customised solutions will also grow steadily.

These wireless platforms generally fall under two broad categories- smartphones which possess full-blown operating systems and can run enterprise applications and wireless PDAs integrated with cellular, Wi-Fi or both.

The wireless platforms, which support multiple operating systems, deliver highly-integrated and complete solutions providing an optimal combination of mobile processing performance, multimedia, mobile broadband and connectivity at intense power efficiency. The development of wireless platforms takes into consideration aspects of the wireless access components such as RF/IF front end, base band and protocol stacks. In the present day offering of mobile appliances, the base band solution is achieved from a blend of CPU and DSP (Digital Signal Processor) type of devices.

According to MarketsandMarkets, the wireless broadband segment accounted for the maximum share, with Rs.96,938.78 crore ($19 billion) in 2011 and is expected to reach Rs.3.04 lakh crore ($59.5 billion) by 2016, at an estimated CAGR of 25.7 per cent from 2011 to 2016, followed by wireless base band segment which accounted for Rs.80,612.24 crore ($15.8 billion) in 2011 and is expected to reach Rs.2.01 lakh crore ($39.4 billion) by 2016, at an estimated CAGR of 20 per cent from 2011 to 2016.
