Regionally, North America earned the dominant heterogeneous network infrastructure industry share with a revenue of $43.0 billion earned in 2018. Growth of this region is attributable to the presence of large manufacturing companies and service providers in the region. Europe ranks second owing to the presence of technology giants such as Ericson, Deutsche Telekom, and Three UK, among others. The Asia Pacific industry on the other side is likely to witness significant growth in the coming years on account of the notable rise in internet users and commercial mobile subscribers in emerging nations such as China and India. Furthermore, the industry in the Middle East and Africa is expected to rise at a significant CAGR in the forecast period on account of the rising growth of the tourism sector and the expansion of this industry in the entire region.
Nevertheless, the increasing demand for high-speed internet data connectivity will create lucrative growth opportunities for the industry in the coming years.On the contrary, the need for large capital investment and the complex design and architecture of wireless network systems may pose a major hindrance to the industry.
The global wireless infrastructure industry size isprojected toreach USD 249.87 Billion by 2026 on account of the increasing adoption of 5G technology worldwide. Wireless infrastructure is a total combination of key standards such as connectivity solutions, connectivity principles, and communication assets. the industry value stood at USD 121.80 billion in 2018 and will exhibit a CAGR of 9.2% between 2019 and 2026.
The Wireless Infrastructure Association (WIA), once in the past known as PCIA, is an American exchange relationship for remote suppliers and organizations that form phone towers, roof remote destinations, and different offices that send remote correspondence signals. The Washington Post depicted the business as “individuals who assemble every one of those phone towers so you can really settle on those decisions, download that information.” These innovations are altogether alluded to as “remote media communications foundation.”
Instances of organizations that are individuals from WIA incorporate American Tower, Boingo Wireless, Graybar, SOLiD, and Advanced RF Technologies. Altogether, part organizations own and run in excess of 125,000 pinnacles and recieving wires in the U.S.
WIA advocates for an assortment of issues before the government, on subjects like broadband organization (the demonstration of building remote broadband foundation in the United States), utility shaft connection (adding remote sign segments to utility posts that as of now exist), remote organization versatility, public security, and remote rivalry. Consistently, WIA has an expo called the Connectivity Expo, otherwise called Connect (X). Beforehand WIA facilitated the Wireless Infrastructure Show.
The increasing penetration of the internet of things worldwide is the key factor propelling the wireless infrastructure industry growth. This, coupled with the advent and the increasing popularity of 3G, and 4G technology is also boosting the industry. In addition to this, the rapid adoption of IoT based electronic devices and the rise in mobile data traffic will also help the industry gain impetus in the future. Moreover, the advent of digitalization in other industries such as aerospace and defense and others are also projected to aid in the expansion of the wireless infrastructure industry in the forecast period.
Increase in Demand for High Internet Speed Connectivity Has Expanded Wireless InfrastructureWireless technology is experiencing tremendous changes due to excellent innovation from the past few years around the globe. Continuous expansion of mobile network coverage has now reached in the rural areas. It have also brought down the data usage charges due to the fierce competition in the industry. Moreover, some of the key factors are fuelling the growth of the wireless industry and setting new records in terms of network traffic, wireless connection and deployment of wireless infrastructure. The mobile and fixed 5G service launching in the U.S. in 2018 has broadened network densification across the country, thereby propelling this industry growth.Wireless technology has witnessed significant growth in the past few years especially in developed countries such as the U.S., Germany, UK, Japan, and South Korea. Moreover, some developing countries are anticipated to expand wireless infrastructure in the next few years,. The rise in demand for faster internet and better connectivity has resulted in continuous innovation in wireless technology. These key parameters are likely to boost the industry growth in the coming years
Company Collaborations will Bode Well for Players
A handful of players are holding a significant position in the global wireless infrastructure industry. These include companies such as NEC Corporation, Qualcomm Technologies Inc., ZTE Corporation, and Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. Growth of the companies mentioned above is attributed to the presence of a diverse portfolio of wireless products, hardware, software solution, and equipment coupled with the massive investments on R & D. Besides this, players are engaging in mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, contracts and agreements, and other collaborative efforts to attract high wireless infrastructure industry revenue in the forecast duration.
