Dell'Oro: Supply Shortages Dampen Wireless LAN Market in Q2

The worldwide Wireless LAN market sales were constrained by supply shortages affecting a number of equipment manufacturers, according to a new report from Dell'Oro Group.. The most significant impact on sales levels came from the enterprise class of products, followed by products targeting the Small Office Home Office users.

"The overall Wireless LAN market sales were about flat quarter to quarter at just under $1.0 billion," said Tam Dell'Oro President and Founder of Dell'Oro Group. "We calculate that sales would have risen about 5 percent had it not been for component shortages such as high speed memory chipsets. US government stimulus programs are turning into sales orders faster than people expected. It is not clear that the shortages are over," added Dell'Oro.
