Radio Access Network Market: Segmentation by Geography
APAC was the largest radio access network market in 2019, and the region will offer several growth opportunities to market vendors during the forecast period. Significant developments in telecommunication network infrastructure will drive the radio access network market growth in this region over the forecast period.
Almost 55% of the market's growth will originate from APAC during the forecast period. China, Japan, and South Korea are the key markets for radio access networks in APAC. Market growth in this region will be faster than the growth of the market in other regions.
Radio Access Network Market: Segmentation by Product
Macrocells are commonly used in urban areas and along roadways to provide network access to users for a long distance. One of the significant advantages of a macrocell is that it removes the need for multiple small cells as it covers a large area. The deployment of microcell base stations is driven by the increased investments by network operators in the deployment, expansion, or development of LTE networks in rural areas. As a result, the radio access network market has been significant, owing to the high revenue generation by the macrocell segment.
The radio access network market share growth by the macrocell segment will be slower than the growth of the market by the small cell segment. This report provides an accurate prediction of the contribution of all the segments to the growth of the radio access network market size.
Radio Access Network Market: Key Drivers and Trends
Currently, there is a rise in the adoption of low-power IoT device connectivity solutions such as low-power WAN (LPWAN), which includes the Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT). The NB-IoT enables communication among devices that have low data requirements for long periods in inaccessible places. IoT devices are connected to the wireless network using RAN to transmit signals to various wireless endpoints. Technavio predicts that the number of IoT devices connected will reach approximately 21 billion by 2023. Technavio also expects that the rise in the number of IoT devices will result in the deployment of RAN in a large coverage area and high-speed connectivity with low latency. Thus, the growing adoption of IoT devices is expected to propel the growth of the global RAN market during the forecast period.
Voice over LTE (VoLTE) is a technology that enables the transmission of voice data over LTE networks. On the other hand, Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi) is an additional enhancement to VoLTE that is used to deliver voice packets over Wi-Fi.
VoLTE was implemented to fulfill the demand for high-quality voice calls along with faster call connection.
Several companies have already implemented VoLTE in their service offerings. For instance, in India, Reliance Communications Ltd. (Reliance Communications) launched its VoLTE services, in collaboration with Nokia, in August 2016.
The increasing implementation of LTE, VoLTE, and VoWi-Fi is expected to drive the deployment of LTE base stations and array antennas to improve the quality of VoLTE services during the forecast period.
The vendors of the global radio access network market will record a significant growth owing to the factors mentioned above
The market is expected to register a CAGR of almost 7% during the forecast period.
