Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

In-building Wireless Market size is anticipated to reach USD 125 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 11% during the forecast period, i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of in-building wireless was USD 33 Billion. To address the instability that cellular carrier networks have when activating data traffic in buildings like workplaces, hospitals, hotels, and retail malls, in-building wireless solutions are implemented. The MNOs/Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) and neutral host providers are using in-building wireless solutions due to capacity concerns and a lack of coverage for indoor wireless networks. Therefore, the increasing demand for high-speed network coverage is accelerating the growth of the market. For instance, around 88% of the world's population was served by LTE in 2022, compared to about 35% by 5G, the newest mobile technology. Nonetheless, by 2028, 84% of the population is expected to be covered by 5G.

The significant improvement in building connectivity is the main advantage of IBRES. Consumers benefit from improved voice quality, quicker data rates, and fewer dropped calls, which improves their overall mobile communication experience. This is particularly important in the case of businesses, where seamless connectivity is an integral part of day-to-day operation.

In-building Wireless Segmentation

Business Model (Service Providers, Enterprises, Neutral Host Operators)

Neutral host operators segment for the In-building wireless market is expected to hold a share of 46% during the forecast period. Businesses and property owners are opting for either of these business models, as required by their commercial needs. The bodies providing funds for installing these systems determine how these models function. An in-building wireless network for businesses is managed by neutral host operators. A neutral host operator that oversees the whole in-building wireless network is the owner of DAS and small cell networks under the neutral host ownership model. These operators shall also be responsible for obtaining carrier consent and selecting the appropriate frequency source in line with the design of the facilities where DAS or small cells are to be used. The development of multicarrier DAS and carrier invoices are the main funding sources for the neutral host operators. Thus, the need for high-performing indoor connections has never been greater due to the growing number of data-driven applications, which is driving the segment's growth. Recent data in 2022, indicates that over 70% of 4G services take place indoors, and industry forecasts indicate that this number will rise to over 80% as 5G expands service diversity and blurs corporate borders.

Deployment (Rural, Urban)

Rural segment for the in-building wireless market is anticipated to hold a share of 56% during the forecast period. The rise of this segment can be ascribed to the deficiency of telecommunications infrastructure in rural areas, which hinders the provision of improved cellular service to users. Using conventional LTE techniques to bring cellular coverage to faraway locations is costly. Several businesses are forming alliances to provide their services to rural regions. For instance, in 2022, the RuralLink solution was introduced by Huawei during the MBBF2022, the Global Mobile Broadband Forum. This solution makes it possible for green sites, site simplification, and simple evolution through site-level innovations. Because of this, operators can create mobile networks that link the disconnected and promote good business cycles in rural areas.
