Industry Insights

The global wireless mesh network market size was valued at USD 6.11 billion in 2018 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 9.1% from 2019 to 2025. The global market is driven by the accelerated usage of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet-of-Things (IoT) technologies in various industries. In addition, increased usage of mobile and handset devices along with the rise in suitable technologies used in handsets will drive the market further.

The development of smart cities and smart devices, with an emphasis on enhancing the mode of communication between government offices and municipalities, is also likely to contribute to the WMN market growth. WMN is also used in smart street lighting infrastructure to control the density of lights for optimal usage. Other industrial sectors, such as oil & gas, chemicals, and mining, also use such networks for improving communication facilities in remote locations.

U.S. wireless mesh network Market

The wireless mesh networking market has seen a rise in video surveillance application, which is used by various government agencies as a security solution that keeps a record of employees and buildings. The application benefits government in safe-guarding public from assassinations and terrorism. The WMNs are also used in monitoring traffic condition, which is helpful in preventing road accidents.

The widespread growth of WMN is largely influenced by the implementation of large events and public places. With the growing adoption for 3G, 4G, and LTE technologies, the global wireless mesh networking industry is expected to witness rapid development. North American is expected to lead the global market in the future as the region has a large number of Wi-Fi/WLAN networks.

Application Insights

The disaster management & rescue operation segment is expected to lead the market over the forecast years. With the increasing proportion of climatic disasters due to rise in temperatures, rescue operations need to be improved with the aid of mesh networks. These networks are also used in military applications for enhancing communication between the team. The video surveillance segment is expected to witness the highest CAGR as video surveillance offers a human-friendly interface and thus is a preferred security solution over others.

It also offers structural flexibility, improved coverage, and high-speed short distance transmission capability. The market’s influence is significant in the Asia Pacific region as the region is considered to be an emerging economy. WMN finds applications in public safety, industrial automation and monitoring, mining automation, and environmental monitoring domains. Moreover, these networks are implemented in commercial segments including malls, shopping centers, and hi-tech city parks, which are a part of the smart infrastructure development in this region.

End-Use Insights

The smart cities & warehouse segment led the WMN market in 2018. Mesh network is used for security and safety purposes and smart metering applications in smart cities. It also help controls traffic congestion situations in smart cities. The oil & gas segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment over the forecast period. The oil & gas market sees the maximum usage of WMN as the market is fluctuating and operators are innovating ways to optimize the production while minimizing costs. WMN is used in the government sector for improving the quality of communication and for improving the education sector through the adoption of technologies, such as online courses and webinars. Similarly, its application in the healthcare segment is gaining traction due to wireless mobility that gives quick access to patient information at the healthcare facility.

Radio Frequency Insights

The 2.4 GHz radio frequency band segment led the market in 2018 and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. Various industrial, medical, and scientific instruments mostly operate in the radio frequency bands, which is expected to boost the segment growth. Moreover, this radio frequency band covers long and small range antenna that is used to keep the system compact. The segment is also expected to dominate the North America market as this region has the maximum number of innovations in the communications infrastructure.

Europe wireless mesh network Market

5 GHz is estimated to emerge as the fastest-growing radio frequency segment over the forecast period. As per the World Telecommunications Conference, 5 GHz spectrum was allocated for unlicensed usage by developed countries. 5 GHz enables to fulfill the growing necessity for a higher speed of operating. The market is expected to witness growth in applications across the utilities and oil & gas sectors by providing a safe and secure system for operations. Moreover, governments in emerging economies have been taking initiatives, such as smart metering, that would replace electricity meters through the usage of mesh network.

Regional Insights

North America was the dominant regional market and was valued at USD 2.44 billion in 2018. The growth can be attributed to increased demand for high-range and low-power consuming Wide Area Networks (WANs). On the other hand, Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest-growing regional market over the forecast period. This can be credited to the rising number of smart cities development initiatives by various governments to enhance operational efficiency and optimize resources. In addition, rapidly developing oil & gas industry in the region will further boost growth of the WMN market.
