International broadband gateway sales will grow by 29 per cent to $834m (£537m) by 2006, according to analyst predictions.
UK market intelligence firm Infonetics Research said it expected the total number of broadband gateway units shipped to rocket by 117 per cent to 16.3 million by 2006.
The analyst's Broadband Gateway Report found that the strong growth, building on revenues of $645m from the 7.5 million devices shipped in 2002, was being driven by broadband adoption.
"The overall worldwide growth of the market will be driven ... by widespread broadband adoption and falling broadband gateway prices," said Infonetics Research's Richard Webb, lead analyst of the report, in a statement.
"The boom in wireless broadband gateways is well underway and willcontinue because the mobility benefits outweigh the marginally higher priceper unit compared to the wired equivalent."
There will also be significant growth in adoption of broadband gateways with virtual private network capabilities, and more robust security features such as stateful firewalls, he added.
