Market Snapshot:

Wireless networking began to produce significant progress into enterprise networks. These wireless networks provide Internet access through a local area network and mobile phone access to the public switched telephone network. Previously, cellular networks were distinct interface networks. Wireless networks will merge in the future to serve both internet and telephone devices, unlocking efficiency gains and cost savings. From last few decades, wireless LAN and wireless cellular in the industry is considered as an overlay network. It has been expanding to be an alternative for primary voice and data access within the building. The expanded usage of wireless in the business industry alters the specifications for in-building cabling as well as the facilities needed in telecommunications closets servicing the facility.

In-building wireless (IBW) is an emerging technology that has developed to satisfy the needs of many commercial building owners, operators, and residents. Since the majority of mobile phone calls are initiated inside a house, there is an increasing need for dependable cell phone coverage inside commercial space. Basically, it is a networking solution that allows for the enhancement and distribution of wireless connections inside an office building or other significant commercial facility.

The key reasons for the widespread acceptance of both of these in-building wireless technologies includes The need for higher data rates, increased mobility, proliferation of mobile devices (smart phones, tablets, laptops, watches, etc.), adoption of bring your own device (BYOD) in offices, schools, and other environments, lower cost network infrastructure for wireless systems, improved quality of service on the wireless networks, improved in-building coverage of wireless. Many in-buildings wireless networks are professionally built, engineered, updated, and configured to a building's specific specification, using a network of antennas, wires, and amplifiers to offer improved wireless communications to remote locations or areas of limited coverage.

The global in-building wireless market size is projected to grow from USD XXbillion in 2019 to USD 19.1 billion by 2026, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 11.86 % during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19

The outbreak of COVID-19 is causing widespread concern and economic hardships for consumers, businesses, and communities across the globe. COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the technology sector, affecting the supply of raw materials, disrupting the value chain, and increasing focus on evaluating and de-risking the end-to-end value chain. Most of the IT and technology giants are focused on giving utmost priority to public health and have made significant changes in the working lifestyle of its employees, thereby accelerating the adoption of remote working culture. Healthcare services are under demand to provide high-quality cellular service for clinicians, patients and visitors  in their community by using a variety of equipment and technology. In-building Wireless Continuity Solution, which utilizes centralized WLAN access points and a Distributed Antenna System (DAS) to universally deliver wireless networks within the healthcare facility. Healthcare professionals provide access to a variety of wireless devices that are highly available and have consistent communications. Most healthcare facilities face pressure from physicians, patients, and tourists to offer thorough, high-quality coverage from cellular service providers, particularly if they use the new wireless technology and smartphones. Healthcare services must have this high-quality broadband coverage from a variety of service providers. This has created an opportunity for the vendors operating in the global in-building wireless market during the pandemic situation.
