Running at 5GBps performance, SuperSpeed USB will represent over 25 percent of the USB market by 2013, according to market analyst In-Stat. The growth will commence in 2010, after a decline in shipment of USB-enabled devices in 2009 due to the global recession.

According to Brian O'Rourke, an analyst at In-Stat, PCs and peripherals transitioned from full-speed to high-speed USB, and will in turn transition to SuperSpeed, "the only issue is the speed of the transition." He added that "for PC peripheral devices, the key will be how quickly SuperSpeed is integrated into the ASICs and MCUs."

In-Stat reported that USB is the most successful interface ever with over three billion USB devices shipped in 2008, including PCs and peripherals, consumer electronics, communications and automotive devices. USB in computer mice will remain the single highest volume PC peripheral category, but CE devices with USB will rise at a 6.6 percent CAGR between 2008 and 2013. They also expect micro-USB ports to become the dominant standard for connectors in mobile phones by 2013.
