Universal remote controllers to generate $1.9 bln in 2012

US revenues from aftermarket universal remote controllers (URCs) will increase from approximately $1 bln in 2006 to $1.9 bln in 2012, according to Parks Associates. While a basic universal remote controller is now in most (75%) of US homes, mid- and high-level universal remotes, now in less than 15% of US homes, are causing the current market excitement.
