Expect to see more stories about the apparent winners and losers within the consumer electronics (CE) marketplace in 2013.

Announcements at the upcoming 2013 CES in Las Vegas will perpetuate the advance of a few market leaders, while also highlighting the ongoing decline of numerous companies that missed the market transition to a new era.

According to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC), the worldwide smart connected device market — a collective view of PCs, media tablets, and smartphones — grew 27.1 percent year-over-year in the third quarter of 2012 3Q12 reaching a record 303.6 million shipments valued at $140.4 billion.
