Wireless Infrastructure Market Size, Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Growth Potential, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2021 – 2027
Report ID: GMI4252
Wireless Infrastructure Market size is predicted to grow at high CAGR from 2019 to 2025 driven by rising popularity of 4G, LTE, and 5G-based high-speed data connectivity capabilities. Improving global economy and expansions into multiple markets have caused enterprises to grow rapidly, handling larger volumes of data every day; hence, enterprises are moving toward high-speed data solutions, enabling them to share data across various verticals and countries quickly. Also, the rise of enterprise mobility, enabling employees to work from anywhere using wireless devices and platforms of their choice, has propelled the need for wireless communication. Wireless infrastructure provides technology, device, and software for both high-speed data requirements as well as mobility needs.
New trends, such as Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) and Wear-Your-Own-Device (WYOD), have also contributed to the demand in the wireless infrastructure market. BYOD/WYOD permits employees to bring/wear their personal devices to work and use them to access enterprise data. Since most of these devices are handheld and require Wi-Fi, strong wireless infrastructure is required to support them. With 75% of employees in Brazil and 44% in the U.S. already using BYOD/WYOD in 2018, the demand is expected to rise even more over the forecast period.
The wireless infrastructure market is segmented into different types of technologies, which include backhaul modules, small cells, Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS), Remote Radio Heads (RRH), Carrier Wi-Fi, Mobile core, Macrocell Radio Access Networks (RAN), and Cloud RAN (C-RAN). Currently, Macrocell RAN holds the major market share and is expected to grow significantly as newer developments, such as heterogeneous networking RANs, gain popularity. The migration of wireless carriers to C-RANs due to faster speeds and low signal interference is expected to increase the growth of the cloud RAN segment.
North America is the largest market region. The dense concentration of wireless carrier hubs, adoption of wireless devices by 95% of the U.S. enterprises, and migration of the U.S. healthcare sector toward high-speed mobility communications for video streaming surgeries have contributed to the growth of the wireless infrastructure market in this region. Better penetration of LTE and 4G services in the U.S. and Canada is also fostering the deployment of wireless infrastructures.
Asia Pacific wireless infrastructure market is expected to be the highest growing. India holds the world’s largest Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) market, requiring significant wireless infrastructure. Also, the increasing number of mobile internet users in Asia, nearly 2.2 billion in 2018, has contributed to the increase in the demand for wireless communication networks. The development and pioneering of 5G technology were also done in Asia, with South Korea, Japan, Singapore, and Taiwan being a few of the first countries to launch 5G services. Attractive speeds and affordable costs are expected to drive 5G adoption, strengthening the wireless infrastructure market in the region.
The key players in the wireless infrastructure market are Cisco, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd, Nokia, Ericsson, Samsung, and ZTE Corporation. Investment in R&D continues to be the key market strategy, with development of new Wi-Fi standards, such as IEEE 802.11ax and IEEE 802.11ay (Wi-Fi 6), offering 75% better response rates and 400% faster speeds than existing IEEE 802.11ac.
