iSuppli predicts AirPlay enabled Audio Devices to rival TV Sales.

Research company iSuppli published an interesting report predicting the upcoming Apple AirPlay to disrupt the connected audio market. iSuppli sees even potential that AirPlay can take the connected audio segment into the top 10 consumer electronics and rival TV sales in unit volumes.

AirPlay allows to stream video to the Apple TV from an iPad or iPhone, but it also allows to stream audio to upcoming AirPlay enabled Third-party speaker docks, A/V receivers, speakers and more. iSuppli sees AirPlay to solve the complexities of the seamless connection of audio for consumers. This complexities are the major reason why sales of home audio networks have not grown as expected.

iSuppli predicts that Apple AirPlay is doing for wireless home audio networking what the iPod did for portable music players.

AirPlay will come to your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch in November with iOS 4.2 release. iHome already unveiled a wireless speaker with AirPlay support.
