Industry Statistics
The graphs of annual and cumulative shipments below are derived from the latest figures released by the DECT Forum in December 2000.  Perhaps the most fascinating thing to the analysts here at DECTweb is that the actual sales in 1999 and 2000 were 48.2million units, incredibly close to the forecast of 50million given by the DECT Forum at the annual DECT conference in January 1999, two years previously.   Indeed, if the the problems with chip supply during 2000 had not occurred sales in the period would have exceeded their earlier forecast.

Detailed Market Breakdowns
For more information on the DECT markets, please see the excellent and comprehensive presentations given by the officials of the DECT Forum at the DECT2000 and CeBIT2000 conferences, which contain a much more detailed breakdown by geographic region and by product type and applications for the years up to and including 1999.  We hope to bring you further information soon which will be presented at the DECT 2001 conference in January 2001.
