Today there are three different specifications to handle additional speed and data requirements, and although not all have met with the same amount of success, each plays a significant role in connecting a myriad of electronic devices. New In-Stat research forecasts the total USB-enabled device shipments will approach 6 billion in 2015.

“The transition to SuperSpeed USB is occurring more quickly than we anticipated last year, due to quicker integration of the new standard into core logic chipsets,” according to Brian O’Rourke, Research Director. “USB will grow at over 7% through 2015 with most of that growth coming from SuperSpeed devices, particularly after 2011. Both low-/full-speed and high-speed USB will remain relevant throughout the forecast period as well. Low-/full-speed will remain the interface of choice in HIDs, and high-speed will remain in many PC peripheral and CE applications.”

According to the report, low-speed and full-speed USB-enabled device unit shipments peaked in 2010 with over 870 million units. In 2013, Super-Speed USB will have an attach rate of 70% in Blu-ray players. Over 38 million broadband routers will ship with High-Speed USB capability in 2015. In 2015, 28% of all USB-enable devices will ship with SuperSpeed USB capability.
