Cloud RAN Market Statistics

C-RAN or centralized-radio access network is basically a cloud computing-based architecture, which is adopted by telecom operators to reduce operating expenditures of companies by enabling large-scale deployment, real-time virtualization capabilities, and collaborative radio technology support. C-RAN has basically three components that are centralized BBUs, distributed RRUs, and their inter-connection networks, which are called fronthaul’s. Cloud RAN technology uses a low-cost transmission module for transmission of data between remote radio head (RRH) and Centralized base band unit (BBU). In addition, there are many benefits of centralized BBU such as resource virtualization, implementation of advanced technologies, and service deployment at the edge facilitation. Rise in data traffic and future progression of wireless technology such as IoT and 5G across the globe is expected to encourage companies to invest in cloud RAN technology, which boosts the cloud RAN market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on Cloud RAN Market: 

  • Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to almost 180+ countries around the globe with the WHO declaring it a public health emergency. The global impacts of the disease are already starting to be felt, and expected to significantly affect the cloud RAN market in 2020.
  • Many businesses have been shifted online for operations, which has put a pressure on telecom operators. Operators are facing high data traffic, owing to increased use of mobile phones. Cloud RAN infrastructure is expected to help operators handle all network traffic and provide high quality services resulting in better user experience and high revenue generation. 

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers, and Impact Analysis

Increase in network congestion, owing to surge in the smart phone usage and rising data traffic & 4G & 5G accessibility among end users are the major factors that drive cloud RAN market growth. In addition, adoption of cloud RAN technology by operators to reduce capital expenditure (CAPEX) and operational expenditure (OPEX) is expected to supplement the market growth. However, lack of technical expertise hampers the market growth. Furthermore, increased adoption of cloud technology in C-RAN is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the global cloud RAN market.

Cloud RAN Market Trends:

5G testing in countries:

5G testing has started in various countries such as China, Japan, and South Korea and operators are making different strategies to become leaders in 5G services as well as LTE services, which is expected to boost cloud RAN investments. 5G would be able to deliver a downlink user experience of approximately 10–100 Mbps throughout and about 1– 10 Gbps locally, with a very less latency.

Notable developments in the field of cloud RAN technology:

Cloud RAN is a very competitive market so companies are implementing different strategies such as collaboration, mergers, acquisitions etc. to sustain in the market. For instance, in June 2017: Nokia Corporation and KDDI Corporation made a collaboration using Nokia’s AirScale Radio to implementing wireless ultra-broadband services in the megacities. In May 2017, Korea’s SK Telecom and Samsung Electronics completed trial to deliver 5G end-to-end connection based on 5G New Radio (NR) technology.

North America expected to dominate the market:

North America is expected to have the largest market share during the forecast period in the market, owing to developed economies such as the U.S., Canada, and high LTE user base which creates demand for high-quality mobile services fueling the growth of the cloud RAN market.
