Sales of Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) enabled devices such as digital photo frames (DPFs), digital TVs, and PCs are growing despite low consumer awareness of technology, reports In-Stat. A survey conducted by In-Stat revealed that only 6 percent of respondents saying they were aware of what DLNA devices are.

DPFs are rapidly growing traction.

Less than a million DPFs were shipped in 2009 but In-Stat expects the number to soar to 33 million DLNA-enabled DPFs by 2014. Norm Bogen, In-Stat analyst, said that Windows 7 is a key market driver in the Universal Plug-and-Play (UPnP) and DLNA market.

The report also states that handsets, PCs, and digital televisions will account for 74 percent of the DLNA market and that devices used as media servers, including PCs, storage, routers, and gateways, are the largest category of (UPnP) device shipments. It also claims that DLNA-enabled Blu-Ray players/recorders will breach the 85-million mark by 2014.
