New market data from ABI Research (www.abiresearch.com) forecasts that market for in-building wireless equipment and deployments will more than double the current market by 2020.
North America will continue to be the region with maximum DAS spend with sports venues, transportation, and healthcare remaining the verticals which attract the most DAS investment with shopping malls and hospitality coming in a close second place, says the research group. Together, these verticals in North America account for just under half of DAS spending. North America is followed by Asia-Pacific and then Europe, respectively, for market size.
“While the Asia-Pacific region accounts for just one-fifth of the total market, we forecast it to be the fastest growing region and to represent over 25% of the market by 2020,” says Nick Marshall, research director at ABI Research. “China dominates the activity in the Asia-Pacific region and we believe that while CAPEX today is targeted to TD-LTE and 4G macro deployments, in-building wireless deployments will turn the corner in 2016 when the market returns to growth and active DAS systems are deployed for better data coverage.”
The leading companies in this market are CommScope, TE Connectivity, Axell Wireless, Corning, JMA Wireless, Dali Wireless, Zinwave, Goodman Networks, Wireless Telecom Group, and SOLiD and will all benefit from DAS spending.
