HDTVs, DVRs, home networks and other devices that are part of the digital home will be the fastest growing consumer technologies throughout the next five years, according to a new report from Forrester Research.

The report, “The State of Consumers And Technology: Benchmark 2007,” includes a five-year forecast for 15 consumer technologies. Among the highlights:

  • Adoption of digital video recorders (DVRs), which were in only 21 million U.S. households at the end of last year, will more than triple, to be in more than 69 million households by 2012.
  • Home networks, in use by nearly 21 million households in 2006, will be in more than 58 million households by 2012.
  • Big price drops have driven HDTVs into an additional 7.3 million households in the past year, and by the end of this year, more than 36 million households will have an HDTV, eventually increasing to more than 69 million households in 2012.
