5G RAN Market

5G RAN Market : Global Industry Analysis 2016 - 2020 and Opportunity Assessment 2021 - 2031

Market Insights on 5G RAN covering sales outlook, demand forecast & up-to-date key trends

5G RAN Market Overview

Cellular devices utilize radio waves in order to communicate. These devices convert the user’s voice and mobile data into digitalized signals sent as radio waves. Radio Access Networks (RANs) are implemented to ensure proper functioning of cellular devices and connect them to networks or the Internet.

RANs utilize radio wave transceivers to connect the device to the cloud infrastructure. Most transceivers or base stations are in connection via fiber backhaul to mobile core network. RANs provide radio communication access and assists coordinative network resources across all wireless devices.

Wireless devices connect to cellular networks via Long Term Evolution (LTE) or 5G New Radio (NR) connectivity. Silicon chips in core network and cellular mobile devices complement the functionalities of RAN.

RANs have evolved significantly over the past years as cellular networking technology reaches 5G. Today, 5G RAN technology has the ability to support Massive Multiple Input Multiple Output (Massive MIMO) technology, multi-band carrier aggregation, vast spectrum bandwidths, and more.

Evolution of 5G RAN is estimated to have a great impact on the growth of wireless networking technologies, and is projected to accommodate network slicing and Mobile Edge Computing (MEC). 5G RAN technology is also likely to contribute to lowering latency which will make 5G technology even more powerful.

5G RAN: Market Dynamics

Infrastructure has always been the top priority of countries with regards to strategic investments. The telecom sector is a rapidly growing with governments making huge investments in IT infrastructure. National governments and public organizations are making huge investments in the betterment of national telecom infrastructures. This trend is estimated to propel the adoption of 5G RAN across every regional market.

Strategic investments in telecom sector help governments harness the potential to create employment and drive economic growth of countries. Ongoing advancements in 5G technology have great potential to transform telecommunication industry vertical and enhance usage experience for end-users.

Many enterprises operating in the telecommunication industry across the globe are focusing on upgrading their existing networking infrastructure to 5G networking infrastructure. This will help such telecom service providers offer services with high performance and high speed connectivity.

Thus, huge investments targeted at upgrading national telecom infrastructure is the key factor estimated to boost the adoption of 5G RAN technology during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic Outbreak on 5G RAN Market

Rising infections across the globe are forcing national governments to declare nationwide lockdowns. These lockdowns are restricting the large scale deployment of 5G technology on global level. Deployment of 5G technology in key industry verticals, like Automotive, Transportation and Logistics, was estimated to boost the adoption of 5G RAN solutions and services.

Lockdowns legislated by national governments to combat the spread of infections has restricted 5G deployment. Government and public sector and healthcare industry verticals are estimated to record a spike in adoption rates. However, the overall growth rate is estimated to carry on undeterred with consistent adoption of 4G LTE.

5G RAN Market: Regional overview

5G RAN markets in North America and Europe are leading all other regional markets on a global level. The strong market share may be attributed to high presence of 5G technology solutions and service providers in the region.

Initiatives and investments deployed by government organizations are also propelling the adoption of 5G technology, thus driving the 5G RAN market. Advancements in 5G technology for automotive and smart transportation are playing a key role in propelling 5G RAN market growth in European economies like Germany and the U.K.

5G RAN market in Southeast Asia Pacific region is projected to register a strong growth rate over the forecast period. 5G RAN markets in Latin America and Middle East and Africa region will be slower to gain traction during the forecast period, as LTE Advanced technology is still gaining diffusion in those regional markets.
