Indoor distributed antenna system (DAS) solutions are gaining wide significance in indoor wireless connectivity solutions, primarily for offices, shopping complexes, and transportation infrastructure buildings, across the world. Some of the major factors driving the demand for indoor DAS solutions are increasing mobile data traffic, the growing need for enhanced cellular capacity in public venues, the increasing need for improved coverage in buildings, and the growing demand for enterprise mobility. Traditionally, distributed antenna systems have been utilized for boosting cellular coverage and capacity in venues such as airports and commercial spaces.
Read Report Overview: Indoor DAS Market
The global indoor DAS market is projected to reach $17.16 billion by 2031 from $5.79 billion in 2021, growing at a CAGR of 11.66% during the forecast period 2022-2031. The growth in the indoor DAS market is expected to be driven by increasing mobile data traffic, the growing need for enhanced cellular capacity in public venues, the increasing need for improved coverage in buildings, and the growing demand for enterprise mobility.
However, the demand for these solutions has increased significantly for boosting indoor wireless connectivity in venues such as hospitality, manufacturing and warehouse, and healthcare. With the rapid rollout of fifth-generation telecom technology in developed economies, the demand for such solutions is likely to increase considerably. Moreover, neutral host companies have also been an integral part of the rapidly growing indoor DAS market, as they provide open access to cellular service providers (CSPs)/mobile network operators (MNOs)/carriers, thereby enabling higher indoor wireless connectivity levels. In the current scenario, the carriers realize the complexity and potential of indoor 5G DAS solutions. Carriers understand it is difficult to unlock the full potential of indoor 5G DAS solutions without neutral host companies. One of the major aspects of the neutral host is the prospect of having an industrial wholesale model that can be offered to carriers to host their communication services. Moreover, the time-to-market of services offered by the carriers reduces, and the indoor DAS deployment process is more fluid as compared to the carrier business model. The long-term CapEx investment into DAS sites by neutral host companies is also something that is critical when it comes to indoor 5G DAS deployments.
The research study focuses on putting forward a clear and concise idea of the current and future outlooks of the indoor DAS industry, with a primary focus on distribution system type, business model type, and application (by building type) across the major indoor DAS markets in the world. The established DAS solution vendors have been working toward the development of solutions that meet the future needs of customers in the indoor DAS industry. Moreover, the carriers are actively working toward network densification to enhance the capacity of their cellular communication networks. The development of open-radio access network (O-RAN) solutions is also expected to positively impact the market, promoting interoperability of indoor DAS solutions from different DAS vendors.
The prominent application types for indoor DAS solutions are commercial buildings, hospitality, government, healthcare, educational institute, manufacturing and warehouse, transportation, sports venues, and residential buildings. Indoor DAS solutions are deployed in commercial buildings, such as offices and shopping complexes, to provide enhanced coverage and capacity for tenants and visitors in such buildings. Typically, commercial buildings generate high mobile data traffic as there is a higher footfall compared to other building types. With the rollout of 5G services, the demand for indoor DAS solutions in commercial buildings is likely to be the highest among all building types over the coming years during the forecast period.
In the indoor DAS market, three types of signal sources, i.e., off-air antennas, base transceiver stations, and small cells, are used in DAS sites. Base transceiver stations are primarily used in indoor DAS sites, owing to their capability to meet large capacity and enhanced coverage needs of the users. With an increase in the deployment of indoor DAS solutions in large-capacity venues, the base transceiver station segment is expected to dominate the indoor DAS revenues among all signal sources.
The demand for indoor DAS solutions varies from region to region, depending upon the number of cellular subscribers, growth of commercial building infrastructure, and adoption of 5G telecom technology. The demand for indoor DAS solutions was the highest in the North America region in 2021, owing to the growing number of cellular subscribers and rapid growth of commercial building infrastructure in the region. The adoption of 5G telecom technology is also increasing significantly in other major markets, including China, Japan, and India.
