Smartphones, TVs and More: See the Top 10 Most-Commonly Owned Tech Products

Kasey Stanton, Web Content, Coordinator, Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™

The top 10 most-commonly owned consumer electronics products of 2015 have seen some dramatic shifts since last year. According to CEA’s 17th Annual CE Ownership and Market Potential Study, smartphones are now the third most-owned consumer electronics product in the country, trailing only televisions and DVD/Blu-ray players. This reinforces the rise of digital content (mobile apps, electronic books and digital content) over traditional content (CDs, paper books and DVDs).
CEA is projecting that ownership of digital content will catch up with traditional content by 2018.
Tablets saw the largest increase in ownership growth over last year, joining the top 10 list for the first time. They are now owned by more than half of American households.
