Global Small Cell 5G Network Market Highlights 2020-2029

The global small cell 5G network market is projected to witness a remarkable CAGR during the forecast period, i.e., 2021-2029. Factors such as the increasing data traffic and the rising demand for high-speed data connectivity in residential and industrial environments are attributed to the growth of this market. Further, the growing emergence of internet of things (IoT) devices, the growing expansion of the 5G network, and the increasing availability of the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) band spectrum are anticipated to provide significant opportunities for the growth of the market. According to our research analysis, more than 20 billion IoT-connected devices were used globally as of 2019. Additionally, extensive advancements in network architecture and the increasing investment to improve 5G small cell technology are also expected to facilitate the progress of the market during the forecast period.

The market is segmented by cell type into femtocell, picocell, and microcell. Among these segments, the femtocell segment is anticipated to garner the largest market share by the end of 2021 primarily on account of the increasing usage of these network stations in homes and small businesses. Research from secondary sources predicts that by 2025, there will be more than 1.5 billion 5G subscriptions worldwide. Alternatively, the picocell section is speculated to grow with the highest CAGR over the forecast period. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the ability of the cell type to provide extended coverage to indoor areas where the obstructions are significantly high, such as offices and shopping malls.
