Digital age in its infancy, says World Electronics Forum

Abstract:
The electronics industry faces a bright future, according to Gary Shapiro, president of the Consumer Electronics Association and secretary of the World Electronics Forum. Shapiro spoke at the World Electronics Forum (WEF) that gathered in Tel-Aviv, Israel. The forum hosted 40 delegates from 16 countries. They discussed issues like green electronics, recycling, free trade, standards, telecommunications, and energy consumption.

"The main trends in the industry include big developments in the areas digitalization, convergence, broadband, biometrics and nanotechnology," Shapiro said in a press conference last week. "We are only in the infancy of the digital age."

According to Shapiro, The electronics industry fuels a big change and transformation in fields such as cable and satellite TV and content. "This industry makes the world a smaller place, and its jobs change lives, through teleworking and other practices. The consumption of electronics in the US is around $150 billion. The average American home has 25 electronic devices."
