RAN Market size was valued at USD 6,189.1 million in 2023 and is growing at a CAGR of 8.4% from 2024 to 2030. Radio Access Network (RAN) is a chief component of a mobile telecommunications system that connects individual mobile devices to the core network infrastructure. It aids wireless communication between mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and IoT devices, and the network operator's infrastructure. The RAN includes various elements, such as base stations, antennas, and associated equipment, that transmit and receive radio signals to create and retain communication links with mobile devices. The Radio Access Network (RAN) market has observed solid growth which is driven by increasing consumer demand and technological advancements. Over the few years, the market is experiencing outstanding expansion owing to a growing awareness of Radio Access Network (RAN) advantages among consumers. In addition, the emergence of new applications and innovations has propelled market growth further. Important factors contributing to this trend include rising disposable incomes, changing lifestyles, and evolving consumer preferences.

Moreover, favourable government protocols and initiatives have also played a significant role in nurturing market development. Furthermore, the Radio Access Network (RAN) market is poised for continued expansion, fuelled by ongoing research and development efforts intended to enhance product quality and efficacy. The Radio Access Network (RAN) market is likely to sustain its upward trajectory, Providing beneficial opportunities for industry players in the forecasting period. However, installing fiber backhaul networks for small cells, generally to support low latency and high data rates, is the major challenge operators face owing to the poor availability of fiber networks in many countries.

 

Recent Market Developments:

  • In October 2021, VMWare Inc., launched VMWare RIC (RAN Intelligent Controller). This VMWare RIC will work along with the VMWare Telco Cloud plateform RAN and likely to assist the service providers smoothly transition to open RAN.
  • In November 2020, Altiostar collaborated with IBM Corporation to deliver open RAN software for 4G and 5G networks. This software is expected to support open interfaces and virtualize the radio access baseband function to advance a disaggregate web scale, multi vendor, and cloud based mobile network.

RAN Market Dynamics

Network densification is an essential part of installing 5G architecture, which promises immensely increased data rates, from megabits per second (Mbps) to gigabits per second (Gbps), and ultra-reliable lower latency, from tens of milliseconds to milliseconds. Successful 5G execution mainly depends on network densification, which is increased with available network capacity by adding more cell sites, along with macro sites, radio access networks, in-building wireless, and small cell deployments. The optimal locations for network densification are generally near urban areas and large venues where there is a higher number of digital users. Network densification is essential for 5G as digital users demand faster speed and higher connectivity. This network must deliver a speed ten times faster than 4G while maintaining optimal connectivity. Furthermore, the penetration of digital services, such as self-directed cars and remote surgeries, experiences an increase, which, will enhance the demand for higher connectivity and faster speeds, which will drive the market's growth.
