SuperSpeed USB shipments to surpass 1B in 2014, up from 70M in 2011

In-Stat research forecasts SuperSpeed USB-enabled device shipments are on a fast track and will surpass 1 billion in 2014, up from 70 million in 2011.

"Because the throughput of SuperSpeed USB, ten times that of high-speed USB, is not required in some devices, adoption will not initially be as broad as for full- and high-speed USB," says Brian O'Rourke, Research Director. "However, SuperSpeed USB will gain significant initial penetration in markets requiring transfers of increasingly larger pools of data. This process is already well underway, as evidenced in the USB Implementer Forum's December announcement that Intel's 7 Series PC Chipset and C216 PC Chipset family achieved SuperSpeed USB certification, guaranteeing increased SuperSpeed penetration of the PC market.

Other details from the report include:
Low-Speed and Full-Speed USB attach rates for keyboards will be 81% in 2013.
Notebooks will be the single largest device that will ship with SuperSpeed USB capability in 2015.
High-Speed USB-enabled device shipments will peak in 2012.
In 2015, 5.5 billion devices will ship with some type of USB capability.
