Over the past several years Wi-Fi has appeared in a greater number of entertainment devices, from cameras to gaming devices (handheld and consoles), to Personal Media Players (PMPs). Across these four categories, shipments have increased from 83.0 million in 2007 to 119.3 million units in 2009. This growth trend is expected to continue, with total shipments growing to 216.4 million by 2013. Handheld gaming devices account for the largest portion of these shipments followed by gaming consoles.

While a growing number of entertainment devices have Wi-Fi embedded, relatively few companies are dominating the market. Most product categories only have a few players, often with a single company dominating the market. For gaming consoles and gaming devices, Nintendo dominates the market. In the PMP market, Apple is dominating sales with the iPod Touch.
