Residential Gateways continued their assault on the Broadband CPE market in 3Q10, rising 4.9% from the previous quarter and 43.2% from a year ago. Residential Gateways represented nearly 40% of all Broadband CPE shipments in 3Q10, says In-Stat.

“The overall broadband CPE market grew for the 2nd consecutive quarter in 3Q10 and, as in last quarter, the growth is primarily a result of increases in Residential Gateway shipments,” says Brad Shaffer, Industry Analyst. “This trend is likely to continue for the next several cycles.”

Recent research found the following:

  • In 3Q10, 30.3 million broadband CPE units were shipped, a 1.7% increase from the previous quarter and a 5.1% increase from the same quarter last year.
  • Cable modem unit shipments were up 10.7% from the previous quarter, largely due to a 15.5% jump in EMTA modem shipments.
  • xDSL modem shipments continued to decline, falling 12.5% from the previous quarter and 42.7% from the same quarter last year.
  • D-Link continues to dominate the Broadband CPE market with a shipment based market share of over 14%, in line with their market share in the same period a year ago.
