A distributed antenna system is a network of transmitters linked to a central source and distributed throughout one building or facility to enhance network performance. A signal source and a distribution system are the two main components. The concept of a DAS is gaining popularity due to its numerous benefits. DAS is used in various applications to provide appropriate coverage.

Further, leading market participants are deploying multi-operator and -technology funds to accommodate various components of mobile operator equipment. In April 2021, Comba Telecom introduced its “379 mm Slim Ultra-Wide Multi-Band Antenna series”, which uses modern and compact design elements to provide the most efficient and reliable internet infrastructure. In order to increase their overall market share, they are also providing a wide range of hybrid active/passive DAS.

However, the high price and long and tedious process associated with the deployment of distributed antenna approach is impeding the distributed antenna system (DAS) market growth. The DAS deployment process in large projects is time-consuming and requires extensive RF engineering and testing. Significant pre-sales expenses are also incurred as a result of site supervision for installing/customizing the DAS setup. For these factors, DAS is relatively expensive and unsuitable for smaller facilities.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The rising demand for mobile data traffic and the important requirement for 5G worldwide are propelling the development of the distributed antenna system (DAS) market. The growing number of cellular network subscribers has necessitated the expansion of macrocell implementations. As per the "Cisco Visual Networking Report," by 2023, nearly two-thirds of the global population is projected to have proper internet access. By 2023, there will be 5.3 Bn internet users (66% of the global population), up from 3.9 Bn (51 percent of the world's population) in 2018.

By 2023, there will be 29.3 billion networked devices, up from 18.4 Bn in 2018. Connectivity technologies/services have progressed from 2G to now 4G, with the trend expected to continue, leading to the commercial viability of 4.5G and, subsequently, 5G. The demand for bandwidth management is increasing as mobile connectivity technologies evolve. The dependence on macrocellular networks itself would make it difficult for service providers to meet the demands of their customers.

Further, rising smartphone penetration, a rise in wireless broadband memberships, and rising mobile internet usage are the primary drivers of the massive increase in data traffic. According to the International Telecommunication Union, approximately 4.9 billion people – or 63% of the world's population – using the Internet in 2021.

In addition, according to the Cybercrew.UK report, 72% of adults in the UK owned smartphones in 2020. The United Kingdom has the world's second-highest smartphone ownership rate, at 78.9 %. In January 2021, 97.5 % of citizens used smartphones to connect to social media platforms. This has affected service providers to focus on providing continuous data and voice services, especially those using in-building wireless solutions.

As part of these efforts, telecommunications companies have begun to deploy DAS solutions at various locations, particularly those with complex building designs. DAS and small cells are evolving as cellular network extensions. The DAS offers the capability and increased bandwidth required to support rising data speeds and low latency.

Insight by Ownership

Based on the ownership segment, the carrier ownership segment is expected to be the most significant revenue contributor in the global distributed antenna system market. Because of reduced costs and greater coverage, the carrier ownership segment will dominate the distributed antenna system market in 2021. There is no capital spending opportunity to invest for the facility owner in carrier ownership; the operators take complete authority of distributed antenna system installation and possession.

Geographic Overview

North America had the largest revenue share in the global distributed antenna system market. This is one of the world's most technically sophisticated regions. By 2020, 327 million North Americans had registered for mobile services, accounting for 83% of the region's population. By 2025, 5G will account for roughly 2/3 of the total mobile connections, or almost 270 Mn connections.

As operators escalate implementation of mid-band spectrum, 5G will account for 98% of initial investment over the next five years. In order to increase the number of subscribers having owned more than one connected device, rising technology in various sectors, growing usage of the Internet of Things (IoT), an increase in the number of cellular M2M connections, and growing preference for on-demand video services would all continue driving the region's distributed antenna system market growth.

Moreover, Asia Pacific is expected to witness the highest CAGR in the global distributed antenna system market. This can be attributed to the rising of planned LTE network deployments in APAC's emerging economies. Furthermore, the virtualization of mobile networks and the increased adoption of open APIs are significant contributors to distributed antenna system market growth. China is ranked third due to rising infrastructure development and rapid advancements in 5 G networks for the global distributed antenna system market.
