However, Wi-Fi router and Wi-Fi extender face a serious challenge from the emerging portable router solutions being offered. The risk of networking solutions is small at the moment, but is likely to grow stronger as its technology advances over time. Major players such as Netgear, Digisol, and TP Link witnessed a sharp slowdown in demand from mainly home or home-office users, with people using Jio’s (the largest 4G network in India) hotspot instead of buying expensive routers.

Increasing penetration of internet is another key factor directly impacting the Wi-Fi router and extender market. The home Wi-Fi router and extender market is growing with Internet penetration in smaller towns, cities, and villages. Demand for home Wi-Fi router and extender with good handling power is growing as the router acts as a gateway and takes the load of all network devices be it wireless or wired and shared internet connections.

In the global home Wi-Fi router and extender industry, Wi-Fi router with uplink port is expected to be the most preferred port across the world. Although normal port is expected to substitute copper in a few applications, uplink port is anticipated to maintain its dominance in home networking devices that make up more than half of the global Wi-Fi router and Wi-Fi extender revenue. This is majorly due to the fact that it can add more ports to connect more devices to the network and expand Wi-Fi range.

Rapid development in communication technology has led to increase in the internet and mobile internet penetration rate as well as enhancement of connectivity and speed of internet. As a result, home Wi-Fi router and extender manufacturers have been introducing new products and protocols that can acclimatize to variable demands, thus providing numerous opportunities to the home Wi-Fi router and extender market.
