In “Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS): Market Analysis and Forecasts 2016–2021,” Dublin, Ireland-based Research and Markets predicts that the global DAS equipment market will reach $3.1 billion in sales by 2021. The company said the largest barrier to deployment continues to be high deployment costs. The report indicates the combined DAS market revenue is expected to reach $9.1 billion by 2021, growing at a 14.95 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR). Leading industries for DAS deployment are public safety, enterprise, transportation and health care.
Another Research and Markets report, “Public Safety in-Building Wireless DAS System Market by System Component (Antennas, Cabling, Distributed Antenna System (DAS) Headend and Remote Unit, and Repeaters), Service (Professional and Managed), Application, and Region – Global Forecast to 2021,” said that the global public safety in-building wireless DAS system market size is estimated to grow from $404.2 million in 2016 $1.74 billion by 2021, at a CAGR) of 33.9 percent from 2016 to 2021. The report said that the public safety in-building wireless DAS system market is driven by factors such as mandatory new public safety buildings codes by regulators, adoption of technological advancements including 4G LTE Network, and extensive usage of wireless services.
“The public safety in-building wireless DAS system market in hospitality is estimated to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period,” a statement from Research and Markets reads. “The hospitality segment is gaining traction in the market due to demand for superior customer experience and better services in case of emergency in the sector.”
The report said that the North American region is expected to continue being the largest revenue generator region for public safety in-building wireless DAS system vendors for the next five years, followed by Europe. The reason given is because of the rapid adoption of in-building wireless and public safety communication solutions in the developed economies of the region, such as Canada and the United States, and because of high focus on mandatory high public safety standards.
According to Research and Markets, Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing region with the highest CAGR. The report said that organizations in that region emphasize offering better customer experience to differentiate themselves from their competitors, a major reason for the high demand for public safety in-building wireless DAS in the region.
Key vendors in public safety in-building wireless DAS profiled in the report are AT&T, Verizon Communications, Alcatel Lucent, Ericsson, CommScope, Anixter, Cobham, Smiths Group, Corning and TE Connectivity.
5G Wireless Ecosystem
A third report from Research and Markets, “The 5G Wireless Ecosystem: 2016–2030 — Technologies, Applications, Verticals, Strategies & Forecasts,” said that although 5G cellular technology is yet to be standardized, vendors are aggressively investing in 5G development efforts with a principal focus on new air interface transmission schemes, higher frequency bands and advanced antenna technologies such as massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communications and beam-forming.
“Driven by regional, national government, mobile operator and vendor initiatives, we expect that more than $6 billion will be spent on 5G research and development and trial investments between 2015 and 2020,” a statement from the company reads. “With large-scale commercial deployments expected to begin in 2020, we estimate that 5G networks will generate nearly $250 Billion in annual service revenue by 2025. 5G networks are expected to use a variety of spectrum bands for diverse applications, ranging from established sub-6-GHz cellular bands to millimeter-wave frequencies.”
According to Research and Markets, although LTE and LTE-Advanced equipment deployments are still underway, mobile operators and vendors have already embarked on initiatives to develop 5G technology with a vision of commercialization by 2020. The company said 5G technology represents a revolutionary paradigm shift in wireless networking to support the throughput, latency and scalability requirements of future uses such as extreme-bandwidth augmented reality applications and connectivity management for billions of machine-to-machine devices.

One of the key factors contributing to the global mobile backhaul equipment market growth is the worldwide boom in mobile data traffic, according to Research and Markets’ “Global Mobile Backhaul Equipment Market 2010-2014.” The mobile backhaul equipment market has also witnessed the demand for microwave-based equipment, mainly for backhaul solutions. However, rapid technological change has led end-users to delay equipment purchases, which could pose a challenge to the growth of this market. Key vendors that are dominating this market space include Alcatel-Lucent, Huawei Technologies, Ericsson and Nokia Siemens Network.
The report highlights that mobile data traffic has grown 280 percent annually over the past few years, and is expected to double in the near future. This surging demand for mobile services threatens to cause network congestion and diminished service quality, which increases the chances of customers switching to competitors; therefore, mobile bandwidth has become a precious commodity. To effectively monetize bandwidth, providers need to be able to measure, monitor and manage network equipment quality, thereby driving demand for mobile backhaul equipment.
The demand for microwave-based equipment, mainly for backhaul solutions, is on the rise and this trend will continue. Microwave-based wireless backhaul has been recognized as the most cost-effective solution for delivering higher capacity in the cellular world, so for the emerging bandwidth-hungry LTE market, the benefits of microwave-based backhaul solutions are even higher.
Research and Markets has added the “60-GHz Radio and Small Cells Backhaul–Markets and Technology” report to its offerings. According to the company, one of the major trends in current mobile networks developments is an evolution toward small-cell technologies. It is expected that in a couple of years small-cell structures will prevail and successfully compete with other types of applicable technologies. Often, an open issue for small cells is backhaul and its cost, which may be a major part of the total network capex.
The report addresses one of the 60-GHz radio applications—backhaul for small cells. It analyzes 60-GHz radio characteristics that may be beneficial for such an application and supports findings with market statistics for 60-GHz radio small-cell backhaul. Although 60-GHz radio is not expected to be a major backhaul technology for small cells, it will definitely find the market for such an application. The technology is attractive because it provides the high resistance to interference, available unlicensed 7-gigahertz bandwidth, an ability to work in congested conditions, and a gigabit-per-second speed of transmission.
