Switch to SuperSpeed 3.0 USB hubs under way


Makers are boosting the production of USB 3.0 hubs as more terminal devices adopt the specification.




  • SuperSpeed advancing: Makers of USB hubs are shifting to the 3.0 standard. Enabled devices will surpass 1 billion by 2014, from 70 million last year, according to In-Stat. As a result, SuperSpeed hubs are expected to increase their share of local production, and overtake mainstream 2.0 variants by 2013. A few suppliers have in fact stopped manufacture of the latter.
  • Single-function hubs lead: Single- and multifunction models make up the selection in China. The former will continue to prevail, representing more than 90 percent of total yield. Multifunction kinds double as chargers or memory card readers.
  • Price forecast: Quotes of 2.0 models will increase in coming months due to climbing labor costs and a stronger yuan. Intense competition will limit the adjustment within 5 percent. Rates of USB 3.0 versions will be stable.
  • Output & export outlook: Suppliers are looking at an average annual output growth of more than 10 percent. Europe and North America are still the key overseas markets, although makers are exploring Asia, South America and the Middle East.
