Global C-RAN Market Expected to Generate $2, 159.2 Million by 2024 with a CAGR of 15.9% - ResearchAndMarkets.com

February 7, 2020 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 7, 2020--

The “C-RAN Market Research Report: By Deployment, Component, Type, Application, Architecture, Geographical Outlook - Industry Opportunity Analysis and Growth Forecast to 2024” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

In 2018, the global cloud and centralized radio access network (C-RAN) market reached $936.3 million and is expected to generate $2,159.2 million in 2024, witnessing a 15.9% CAGR during the forecast period (2019-2024).

The market is growing due to the reduction in hardware costs, rising data traffic, and increasing penetration of 5G technology. C-RAN allows real-time virtualization and large-scale deployment in addition to providing collaborative radio technology support. Moreover, C-RAN is a primary aspect for the growth of wireless technologies, such as 5G.

When component is considered, the C-RAN market is categorized into services, infrastructure, and solution. The infrastructure category dominated the market during the historical period (2014-2018) and is further expected to account for the major share of the market during the forecast period. This is because of the rising investments in 5G and other technologies, such as 4G and LTE, by the mobile operators. The category is further classified into fronthaul, baseband units (BBU), and remote radio units (RRU), among which, the BBUs classification held the largest share of the market during the historical period.

On the basis of application, the C-RAN market is divided into targeted outdoor urban areas, suburban & rural areas, large public venues, and high-density urban areas. The large public venues application accounted for the largest share of the market during the historical period and is projected to retain its position during the forecast period. The targeted outdoor urban areas application is expected to grow at the fastest pace during the forecast period as these areas include commercial and residential spaces that created a large demand for C-RAN for transforming networks to 5G and LTE.

A key driving factor of the C-RAN market is the growing penetration of 5G technology. In order to efficiently achieve the deployment of 5G, it is mandatory for the telecom operators to adopt new technologies for desired network capabilities. The demand for 5G, especially in the business environment, is increasing rapidly, which is why the service providers are focusing on the transformation of RAN. C-RAN aids in reducing latency, enhancing network performance, lowering OPEX and CAPEX, and simplifying network operations, which is why its demand is increasing.

Another factor contributing to the growth of the C-RAN market is the surging data traffic. At the present time, more than 3 billion people around the world utilize smartphones, as opposed to 2.8 billion in 2018, which shows a significant rise in the demand for smartphones. This rising usage of smartphones has further led to increased network traffic. Because of this, the telecom operators are focusing on the deployment of C-RAN solutions, where BBUs are deployed on cloud solution, which helps reduce the signal interference and provides enhanced user experience.

A major trend being observed in the C-RAN market is the growing adoption of network virtualization technology. Enterprises around the globe are becoming more inclined toward virtualization in order to gain an edge over their competitors, primarily in terms of network capabilities. Network virtualization is being adopted by various financial organizations, cloud service providers, and enterprise data centers. In addition to this, both large and small organizations are also taking benefit of network virtualization for speed, efficiency, and scalability.

Thus, the market is growing due to the rising penetration of 5G technology and rapidly increasing data traffic.
