New research from technology intelligence company, In-Stat, suggests that while the cost of silicon is currently holding back the production of Wireless USB devices, shipments could almost double to 190 million by 2012, compared with under 100,000 in 2007.

The appeal of WUSB is expected to pick up when silicon prices fall, helping consumers benefit from the technology’s ability to efficiently transfer large amounts of data from one device to another.

WUSB technology is being incorporated in a range of electronic devices, including PCs, computer peripherals and mobile phones.

The report titled “Wireless USB 2008: The Journey Begins”, suggests that notebooks will drive adoption of the technology, which will compete with other wireless technologies including Wi-Fi.
