Increasing wireless data usage has also led to various coverage and carrier capacity challenges. To overcome this, cellular service providers focus on providing cost-effective and advanced services to subscribers using data-intensive applications, such as audio and video streaming. It is expected to drive the deployment of DAS. Additionally, on account of this high data usage, small-cell networks have become essential for providing the requisite capacity and coverage. Service providers use distributed antenna systems to create small cells for outdoor network plans.

Although the technology has been around for over a decade, the need to meet increasing bandwidth requirements with fewer assets is expected to drive innovation in distributed antenna systems and the optical networks industry. The technology addresses the need for small-cell delivery and manages efficient small-cell backhaul. Mobile service providers are keen on implementing the latest DAS and fiber technologies to create cost-effective deployments, expected to drive the market over the forecast period.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the DAS market. As remote work, online education, and telemedicine became more prevalent during the pandemic, there was a heightened need for reliable and high-quality connectivity. With its ability to improve indoor and outdoor wireless coverage, DAS became increasingly important in ensuring seamless communication and data transmission. It increased demand for DAS installations in various settings, such as hospitals, office buildings, and residential areas.

However, the pandemic accelerated the digital transformation across various sectors. As businesses and institutions adapted to remote work and virtual operations, the demand for robust connectivity solutions, including DAS, increased. This accelerated adoption of digital technologies and the shift toward a more connected environment has long-term positive implications for the DAS market.

Technology Insights

The hybrid DAS segment held the highest market share of 49.8% in 2022. The segment is expected to grow as it offers efficient data connectivity during unusual or fluctuating signal problems. Moreover, these systems have minimal design and installation time, a primary factor expected to drive segment growth over the forecast period. Hybrid DAS is widely preferred among users because of its enhanced coverage and economical cost compared to other DAS technologies.

The active DAS segment is estimated to register a significant CAGR of 8.7% over the forecast period. The increasing demand for reliable and high-capacity wireless connectivity in various industries and sectors drives the growth of the active DAS segment in the market. The need for seamless communication, enhanced coverage, support for multiple frequency bands, and advanced network management capabilities contribute to the adoption and expansion of active DAS solutions.

Ownership Insights

The neutral-host ownership segment dominated the market with a revenue share of 51.3% in 2022 and is anticipated to retain its position over the forecast period. The neutral-host ownership model provides numerous benefits when third-party system integrators initiate the funding. In cooperation with multiple carriers, these system integrators form a group to install DAS.

Moreover, the host company obtains exclusive rights to the system, and the end-user receives a multicarrier DAS. Neutral-host ownership provides numerous benefits, including improved coverage and quality of service, increased capacity, capital cost reduction, and improved speed to market for service providers.

For instance, in June 2023, Ericsson and Proptivity launched the world's first shared indoor 5G network led by a neutral host, utilizing the Radio Dot System. This groundbreaking deployment occurred in a central Stockholm property encompassing a shopping mall and office spaces. The introduction of this innovative solution delivers high-speed 5G connectivity to visitors and employees, enabling impressive download speeds of up to 1.2 Gbps across the entire building. The shared indoor network supports multiple operators and vendors and offers remarkable benefits compared to traditional systems. It significantly reduces power consumption by up to 70% and minimizes equipment footprint by up to 80%.

The carrier ownership segment is estimated to register a significant CAGR of 8.5% over the forecast period. With the proliferation of smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices, there has been a significant surge in mobile data consumption. Users expect reliable and high-speed connectivity for various applications, including video streaming, social media, and online gaming. DAS technology enables carriers to enhance network coverage and capacity in high-traffic areas, such as stadiums, airports, shopping malls, and urban centers. By owning and deploying DAS infrastructure, carriers can meet the increasing demand for mobile data and offer better user experiences to their subscribers.

Application Insights

The public venues and safety segment dominated the distributed antenna systems (DAS) market with a share of 26.5% in 2022. The consistent rise in construction activities in commercial infrastructure is a key factor affecting the growth. Public venues include conference and convention centers, shopping malls, theaters, and fairgrounds, where patrons and employees expect a seamless mobile data experience. DAS in this application will eradicate poor wireless coverage and enable higher customer and employee data output.

The healthcare segment is anticipated to witness substantial growth and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 10.7% over the forecast period. Consumers in this sector depend highly on efficient data connectivity to perform their daily activities. Doctors or staff require fully integrated systems to improve operational efficiency and productivity. Additionally, distributed antenna systems in the healthcare sector offer enhanced data connectivity to visitors and staff, which aids in eliminating poor wireless coverage between buildings, reduces interference, and maintains improved signal and coverage quality.

Regional Insights

North America accounted for the largest market share of 30.3% in 2022. This growth is attributed to the rising trend of Bring Your Own Devices (BYOD) along with the development of smart cities. Additionally, the increasing use of smartphones and ever-growing wireless traffic is expected to drive regional expansion further. North America has been at the forefront of technological advancements in telecommunications, including wireless communication infrastructure.
