5G Radio Access Network Market Trends


Growing demand for improved network coverage is driving the market growth


In order to address the growing need for high-speed Internet and extensive network coverage for a variety of future end-use applications, such as autonomous driving, augmented reality, and telemedicine, network carriers are working to expand network coverage. High network availability is required for applications like autonomous driving, along with high speeds and low latency of less than 1 millisecond. Initial LTE network deployments relied on homogenous networks, which are made up of macro base stations that offer basic coverage. The idea of heterogeneous networks, which may be used to optimize performance for the uneven user or traffic distribution, is gaining popularity right now, nonetheless.


By the end of 2017, there were 4.3 billion mobile broadband subscriptions worldwide, growing at an average rate of more than 20% per year in the previous six years. The widespread use of mobile broadband services was made possible by the low cost. In wealthy economies, the average cost of a mobile broadband subscription was 0.7% of GNI (gross national income) per person, compared to 4.3% in underdeveloped nations. As a result, significant efforts are being made to extend internet access through the spread of broadband networks. This is expected to boost the number of 5G mobile broadband customers, which will fuel the market's expansion for radio access networks. Thus, driving the 5G Radio Access Network market revenue.
