Market Synopsis

Global USB Devices Market size was valued at USD 19.00 Billion in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 46.08 Billion by the end of the forecast period with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.9%.

Universal serial bus (USB) is an industry-standard that states specification for cables and connectors to establish a connection, communicate, and supply power between computers, peripheral devices, and other computers. USB allows users to connect up to 127 devices, either directly or through a USB hub. A USB device functions by host or data source to send a class code, which further allows the device to select specific drivers compatible with it, and thus initiates the process of transfer. The adoption of USB devices is largely witnessed in consumer electronics, IT & telecom devices, automobiles, and medical devices. Ease of development and manufacturing of custom products and increasing demand for better connectivity performance between electronic devices are the major factors attributing to the growth of the global USB devices market. However, security issues are expected to hamper the growth of the global market. Also, the complexity associated with the replacement of old USB standards with new ones is creating a challenge for the market vendors.
