Commercialization of the next-generation 5G network is likely to foster the in-building wireless market growth. For instance, in October 2022, the Indian government launched 5G services in the country Companies such as Reliance, Vi, Airtel, and BSNL are in the race to offer 5G connectivity across India. Rising demand for improved cellular and broadband coverage will encourage companies to shift to faster networks, thereby bolstering the industry outlook.


Mounting number of cyberattacks to hamper the industry growth

Concerns about data privacy and security are major impediments to in-building wireless market growth. The growing frequency of cyberattacks around the world raises privacy and security concerns among in-building wireless and RAN users. C-centralized RAN's architecture is vulnerable to a variety of threats, including single points of failure, intrusion attacks, and cyberattacks. Nonetheless, positive efforts by market players to improve the cyber security features of their devices in order to prevent customers from becoming victims of cyber attackers are expected to combat this issue.

Soaring use of smartphones to accelerate in-building wireless infrastructure deployment

In terms of components, the infrastructure component segment recorded over 75% market share in 2022, driven by the surging penetration of smartphones which is resulting in increased demand for base stations to improve cellular network connections. For instance, small cells are preferred by small cell sites such as small offices and homes to enhance cellular coverage.

High applicability of small cell infrastructure across low-power range mobile base stations

In 2022, the small cell infrastructure segment garnered over 27% revenue share of the in-building wireless market. The small cell in-building infrastructure includes low-power range mobile base stations that provide cellular coverage to sparsely populated areas. Small cells can be deployed in a variety of existing infrastructures, including bus stops, information booths, billboards, street manholes, and light poles.

Based on small cell, the picocell segment will witness 11% CAGR through 2032. A picocell increases cellular coverage within buildings. It can be used to extend wireless services to the interiors of buildings and other locations that the network cannot reach. Furthermore, it is well suited to applications requiring huge coverage footprints, such as metropolitan streets and outdoor theme parks. Picocells provide multiple benefits of small cells like improving data throughput for users and increasing capacity in the mobile network.

Lack of adequate network infrastructure in rural areas to accelerate use of in-building wireless solutions

Based on deployment, the rural in-building wireless market is set to depict around 25.5% CAGR till 2032. The segment's expansion can be attributed to inadequate telecommunications infrastructure rural areas which prevents users from having better cellular service. It is expensive to extend cellular coverage to remote places using traditional LTE methods. Several companies are initiating partnerships to extend their services to rural areas. In December 2021, Ericsson announced a partnership with Nex-Tech Wireless to commercially launch the latter’s 5G capabilities in rural Kansas.
