Sales of wireless local area network (Lan) products will grow more than 60 per cent through to 2006, according to research by Infonetics.
But the market analyst has warned that this growth is below the levels predicted by many experts.
According to Reuters, analyst Infonetics estimates international revenues from wireless hardware, primarily based on the 802.11 standard, would reach $2.72bn (£1.72bn) in 2006, up from $1.68bn (£1.07bn) in 2002.
The growth will come despite widespread caution among public sector organisations, hospitals, academic institutions and large corporates about deploying wireless technology, primarily because of security concerns.
"White collar enterprises, a major potential market, still need some convincing on security and network control issues," said Infonetics analyst Richard Webb told Reuters.
Cisco, and the privately held networking equipment manufacturer Linksys, currently hold the lion's share of the wireless market, according to the analyst.
The US market currently accounts for about 60 per cent of wireless Lan sales.
