The small cell sites are expected to witness 4% growth rate during the forecast period due to the rise in the number of cellular subscribers across the word. For instance, in September 2019, according to GSMA, unique mobile subscribers have crossed a 5 billion mark across the world. The increase in cellular subscribers, in turn, needs improved cellular coverage, burdening the existing telecom infrastructure. Small cells help telecom operators to extend cellular coverage to low populated areas such as airports, malls, railway station, commercial building, and small offices.
 

Supportive initiatives for commercialization of 5G network will drive the radio access network market revenue

The commercialization of 5G network is projected to propel the demand for 5G radio access network solutions on account of its bandwidth and network capabilities. The growing demand for improved cellular network coverage is enabling companies to focus on the deployment of next generation 5G technology.
 

For instance, in April 2019, SK Telecom, a leading Korean telecommunication company launched a nationwide 5G technology. The company’s 5G network can support a transmission speed of up to 2.7 Gbps and cover data traffic concentrated areas in 85 cities, nationwide. It implements a series of techniques designed to improve a signal's ability to reach each local user device without generating unnecessary interference or consuming redundant energy resources. The companies are focusing on the development of 5G radio access network solutions through strategic partnerships with other technology companies.
 

Rising demand for radio access network solutions in high-density urban region

The high-density urban region segment is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 4% through 2025 owing to the increase in urban population across the world. According to the UN, 55% of the world’s population lived in urban areas in 2018. In these high-density urban areas, subscribers are densely concentrated and use data services more extensively. Mobile operators face challenges to identify and correct capacity shortfalls in these high-traffic areas. The need for the effective management of expected traffic offloads and increased network capacity in these areas are enabling telecom operators to deploy small cells.
 

Adoption of radio access network is higher in the North American region

North America radio access network market accounted for 30% revenue share in 2018 led by the increase in internet penetration in the region. For instance, according to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), a specialized agency of the United Nations responsible for issues on ICT, 70% of the population in North America utilized the internet in 2018. The increase in internet penetration results in massive data traffic, generated from different cellular and IoT devices. Thus, the adoption of radio access network is increasing to effectively manage data traffic and enhance network speed. The government’s supportive initiatives for the commercialization of 5G network are also impelling the regional market demand.
