For iBiquity Digital, one goal at this week’s CES show is emphasizing HD Radio’s footprint in the marketplace.
Some 70 HD Radio-equipped consumer electronic products are now offered in the automotive aftermarket, home, portable and navigation product categories, according to the company.
About 5.5 million HD Radio-equipped products shipped in 2013, a 70% growth over the prior year. The company believes its technology increasingly is becoming a mainstream feature in home and automotive-based products.
IBiquity President/CEO Bob Struble expects continued sales growth in 2014.
Approximately 50 new models of HD Radio receivers are on display in iBiquity’s booth here in Las Vegas. Of those, some 30 are aftermarket car radios, including an expanded product line from Kenwood and Pioneer, new high-end models from Alpine, and new models from Sony, Clarion and JVC.
