The growing network congestion owing to limited spectrum availability and the smart devices usage has compelled the demand for enhanced network architectures, such as cloud-RAN. The mobile operators are facing the challenge, as technology trend in the wireless networking industry is shifting from the current 3G wireless mobile communication technology to more advanced 4G technologies, such as LTE and LTE-A. This change has increased the cost of implementation, as in most scenarios, large network providers have been obliged to support multi-standard networks.
The rapid rise in the deployment of 5G will further increase the burden on the currently available operation model and infrastructure. The cloud-RAN architecture uses the small-cell model and has been recognized as a favorable methodology to address the 5G standards. It is an innovative architecture, which can solve different challenges that the mobile operators face while trying to support the growing needs of end users, then it is appreciated as a major technological basis for 5G network. The increasing activities to test 5G networks across countries, including South Korea, China, Japan, and U.S. is estimated to drive the market growth from 2020 to 2027.
Asia Pacific dominated the cloud radio access network market in 2019 and is projected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to the initiatives taken by the network operators and governments across countries, such as Japan, South Korea, and China to roll out 5G deployment in the next five years.
The market for C-RAN is predominantly consolidated in nature with presence of several key participants dominating at global level. Some of the key players include Cisco Systems, Inc.; Nokia; SAMSUNG; Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.; Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson; ZTE Corporation; Intel Corporation; NEC Corporation; and Altiostar.
