The Bluetooth® Market Update, released annually by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), highlights the latest Bluetooth technology trends and forecasts. Featuring market projections and industry insights from ABI Research and several other analyst firms, the 2023 Bluetooth Market Update highlights the role Bluetooth technology will play in IoT markets. This report outlines the Bluetooth technology roadmap, examines new Bluetooth technology trends, and provides updated forecasts for key Bluetooth solution areas.

Updated Forecasts and Trends

The pandemic proved to be a turbulent time for many global markets with COVID-19 impacting supply chains and creating noticeable short-term shipment shortfalls for certain device types, such as smartphones, asset trackers, and voice-controlled front ends. While near-term forecasts are slightly down from last year, analysts anticipate seeing higher growth over the later half of the five-year forecast. 7.6 billion Bluetooth devices will ship in 2027, representing a nine percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over the next five years.

The Bluetooth® Market Update

The Bluetooth® Market Update provides updated forecasts and trends in key Bluetooth solution areas and highlights Bluetooth use cases that will drive future growth.


Peripherals Will Drive Single-Mode Bluetooth LE Device Growth

According to ABI Research, Bluetooth® LE single-mode device shipments are forecasted to more than double over the next five years. This is driven, in large part, by continued strong growth in peripheral devices. In addition, when you consider both single-mode LE and dual-mode Classic + LE devices, 97 percent of all Bluetooth devices will include Bluetooth LE by 2027.

Platforms Continue to Support Bluetooth Classic and Bluetooth LE

Developers can count on Bluetooth® Classic and Bluetooth LE to be in all platform devices. With Bluetooth LE and Bluetooth Classic in 100 percent of phones, tablets, and PCs, the number of dual-mode devices supported by Bluetooth technology is reaching complete market saturation.

Peripherals Continue to Drive Bluetooth Device Shipment Growth

Since nearly all smartphones, tablets, and PCs support Bluetooth® LE, the growth rate of Bluetooth technology in peripheral devices will continue to outpace platform device growth. According to ABI Research, Bluetooth peripheral devices shipments are set to double platform devices shipments in 2023.
