SCOTTSDALE, AZ — HomePlug has emerged as the market leader for power line networking solutions, overcoming competition from other power line standards such as HD-PLC and UPA, says new research from In-Stat, which forecasts that HomePlug node shipments will surpass 30 million units by 2014. The HomePlug Alliance is seeking to solidify the technology's lead by signing liaison agreements with the Multimedia Over Coax Alliance (MoCA), the Wi-Fi Alliance and the ZigBee Alliance to promote cooperation and interoperability in home networking.

“HomePlug products are expected to maintain their lead and continue to grow considerably over the next five years. We expect the European region to remain the main target market for HomePlug products, though Asia Pacific will see the highest growth rate over the next 5 years,” says Vahid Dejwakh, Analyst. “The first HomePlug CE devices will appear around late 2013 in both North America and Europe and will grow considerably in the European market. This will be a HomePlug celebration and a key milestone in the development of power line technology.”

In-Stat also finds that:

  • Worldwide, more than 40 million wired home networking nodes shipped in 2010.
  • HomePlug node shipments currently represent 50 percent of all nodes shipped.
  • The main providers of networking nodes for this market are Atheros, Entropic, Sigma Designs and Broadcom.
  • will replace HPNA and then overtake MoCA by end of year 2015.
  • HomePlug dominates router/gateway home networking units throughout the forecast period, and set-top boxes will be dominated by MoCA. However, will make impressive gains in set-top boxes, becoming the second most popular standard by 2013 and challenging MoCA by 2015.
