Distributed Antenna System (DAS) Market Size, Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Industrial analysis report, Growth Potential, 2022 – 2028

  • Report ID: GMI4662

Distributed Antenna System Market size is estimated to grow significantly from 2020 to 2026 as the technology enables better defined coverage, fewer coverage holes, and same coverage using a lower overall power. Individual antennas do not need to be as high as a single antenna for equivalent coverage. In DAS approach, the overall power required is less as many localized antennas can be placed more effectively for a small area rather than having a single, larger antenna that is a compromise for the wider coverage needed. 

DAS is a network of antennas spaced apart from each other that is able to provide wireless or radio coverage within a given area. The concept of distributed antenna systems has been known about for many years, but it is with the increased deployment of wireless systems within buildings and other difficult coverage areas that the idea of distributed antenna systems came into existence. The increase in the number of subscribers has propelled the need for more macrocell deployments. It is becoming difficult for mobile service providers to provide seamless coverage via macrocell base stations.  With the evolution of mobile connectivity technologies, the need for bandwidth management is also rising. Relying on macro-cellular networks alone will not enable service providers to meet the rising demands of customers.

The distributed antenna system market has been segmented into solutions and services. On the basis of solutions, the DAS can be categorized into antenna nodes, head-end units, radio units, bidirectional amplifiers, cables, splitters, and repeaters. All the solutions counter problems related to connectivity, for instance, the bidirectional amplifier is used in offices, buildings, and hotels to boost the strength of wireless signals, and it helps two-way radios and smartphones avoid dropping calls or receiving spotty coverage. Based on services, the market can be categorized into consulting services, deployment & integration services, and managed services.

Based on coverage, the DAS market is segmented into active DAS, passive DAS, and hybrid DAS. An active DAS is basically used when an additional network capacity is required as in the case of an airport or a big stadium using optical fibers. Hybrid systems mainly use co-axial cables and are a good solution for medium-sized spaces and passive DAS systems that mainly use bi-directional amplifiers to amplify signals from the macro cellular network using a donor signal on the roof. Hybrid DAS is widely preferred amongst users because of its enhanced coverage and economical cost compared to other DAS technologies.

On the basis of technology, the distributed antenna system market is segmented into carrier Wi-Fi, small cells, and Self-organizing Network (SON). The technologies used in DAS are interconnected as the need to manage the growing network complexity with the increasing number of small cells and the high demand for wireless connectivity are the factors that drive SON market growth. The demand for SON software due to upcoming 5G and growth of 4G technology is expected to grow significantly over the next 5 years.

On the basis of end use, DAS is segmented into hospitality, healthcare, education, enterprises, airports, and transportation. An increase in number of passengers has triggered the demand for distributed antenna systems in airports and other transportation hubs. Growing demand for seamless mobile connectivity is another key driver for the growth of the market.  For instance, passengers within Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) and Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) facilities currently get cellphone signal coverage via indoor DAS technology infrastructure.

North America currently holds a significant position in the global DAS market. Due to recent advances in cellular technology, Asia Pacific is expected to exhibit an excellent growth over the forecast period. This can be attributed to the growing number of planned deployments of LTE networks in emerging economies of APAC. Further, the virtualization of mobile networks along with the rapid adoption of open APIs, is also another contributing factor to the market growth.

The leaders in the distributed antenna system market are working with industries across the spectrum to provide solutions to business problems in a more comprehensive manner. For instance, CommScope Holding Company Inc, a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, is currently working with Resonai Inc., an Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Augmented Reality (AR) company, in order to build an app based on Vera platform to use the benefits of AR for installation, operation, and maintenance of communication infrastructure in a campus. 

The key players in the market are Cobham Wireless, Boingo Wireless, SOLiD Inc., AT&T, Advanced RF Technologies, Comba Telecom Systems Holdings Ltd., Dali Wireless, American Tower Corporation, TE Connectivity, Axell, Corning, CommScope Holding Company Inc., Ericsson, and Corning Incorporated.
