CESConsumer Electronic devices growth rapidly : Products Consumer electronics products are more prevalent than ever with the average U.S. household owning 26 non-discreet CE products (up from 25 in 2005) and spending $1,200 on CE products in the past 12 months, according to data released today by the Consumer Electronics Association. CEA's annual CE Ownership and Market Potential Study also found that analog is giving way to digital technologies across the board, identifying the top five CE growth sectors as MP3 players, digital cameras, car video entertainment systems, in-dash CD players and notebook PCs. "America's love affair with consumer technology products continues," exclaimed CEA President and CEO Gary Shapiro.

"Consumers across the nation recognize that digital products enhance the way we all work, live and play. Digital products are cool and the CE industry remains hot." "With the overall CE industry expanding 11 % on a revenue basis in 2005, it is understandable that the household penetration of a handful of categories responsible for driving this double-digit revenue growth have gained momentum over the past year," said CEA Director of Industry Analysis Sean Wargo.

CEA - MP3 top list
"The MP3 player certainly tops the list with a 10 point gain in household penetration from 15 percent in January of 2005 to 25 percent in January of 2006. This is the only category to have tripled growth in a year. Eight million units shipped in 2004 and shipments surpassed 25 million in 2005. We anticipate an additional 30 million will ship this year, which puts MP3 right up there with televisions." Wargo noted that other top growth categories included the digital camera - up eight household penetration points from 49 percent in 2004 to 57 percent in 2005; car video entertainment systems, up six points from nine to 15 percent; the in-dash CD player, up five points from 57 to 62 percent and notebook PCs, up four points from 30 to 34 percent.

Five most owned Consumer Electronics products
In addition to calling out the top growth categories, the study revealed the five most owned products, led by televisions at 95 percent household penetration, followed by VCRs (87 percent), cordless phones (85 percent), DVD players (81 percent) and wireless phones (78 percent)."CEA estimates the current installed base of cell phones is nearly 182 million units with an average of more than two wireless handsets per owner household," Wargo said. "Close behind the wireless phone is the PC; three in four households now own either a desktop or notebook PC.

Satellite radio - True milestone
Portability is playing a larger role in computing as evidenced by the fact that notebook ownership improved four points to 35 percent of households." The report includes favourable findings for satellite radio, as well. Satellite radio ownership reached 10 percent of households as aggregate Sirius and XM subscribers breached the 10 million mark. "This is a milestone for this technology," Wargo concluded. "It cements the idea that consumers are receptive to the idea of pay radio."
