The global market for wireless chipsets will expand from $938m (£576m) in 2003 to $1.7bn by 2007, according to a new report.
Technology analyst CIR said that the main driver will be businesses looking to avoid the cost and hassle of cabling and moving PCs around the office.
The firm's report predicted that wireless local area networks (Lans) can never hope to replace the wired Lan.
But it added that wireless Lans offer genuine relief from the high cost of moving workstations, a problem that has vexed businesses for years.
Chipsets for wireless switching hubs alone will be worth almost $160m by 2007, CIR said.
New technologies are often adopted by businesses before consumers, and CIR suggested that there is potential for chipset manufacturers to offer products with higher security, and switching capabilities for wireless hubs.
CIR said that the major trend for suppliers is towards targeting the consumer electronics market.
It expected significant demand from consumers for wireless-capable flat screen displays which connect to products such as wireless DVD players.
The analyst also predicted that the market for video-enabled wireless chipsets will hit $350m by 2007.
