The Digital Living Network Alliance Marks Tenth Anniversary with More Than Two Billion Certified Units Sold

New research from industry analyst firm Parks Associates highlights DLNA’s deep reach into consumers’ digital lifestyles. With two billion DLNA Certified® products already purchased by consumers, the firm projects a total of three billion products will be sold globally by 2014 with a further increase to five billion by 2016.

“DLNA continues to be an important industry standard for the connected home, and new additions to the guidelines are likely to increase DLNA’s influence in the future,” said Brett Sappington, director of research at Parks Associates. “Sales of DLNA Certified® products will see significant growth in upcoming years, exceeding the rate of growth of non-certified products in several categories.”

Additional Parks Associates’ findings in each of the fastest growing DLNA product categories include:

The projected compounded annual growth (CAGR) of global DLNA Certified® device shipments exceeds those of corresponding non-DLNA Certified® devices in almost all product categories. Unit volume is highest in smartphones, tablets, computers, and smart TVs.

Overall sales of DLNA Certified® devices across all categories will grow at an annual rate of 15 percent through 2018.

Driven by the increase in video consumption on mobile devices, smartphones are the highest volume global market for DLNA Certified® products, with 264 million DLNA Certified® smartphones sold during 2013.
