The major players in the DAS market are American Tower Corporation (U.S.), AT&T, Inc. (U.S.), Boingo Wireless, Inc. (U.S.), Cobham Wireless (U.K.), Comba Telecom Systems Holdings Ltd. (U.S.), CommScope, Inc. (U.S.), Corning, Inc. (U.S.), Crown Castle International Corporation (U.S.), and SOLiD, INC. (South Korea) among others.
The major factors driving the growth of the DAS market include the growing adoption of bring your own devices (BYOD) such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets leading to the consumption of spectrum, resulting in inefficient wireless connectivity services. Therefore, DAS is being adopted because it offers enhanced and uninterrupted Internet connectivity. Additionally, the consumers desire to stay connected every time is further contributing to the growth of the DAS market.
The installation services category in the distributed antenna systems market for the equipment and services segment held the largest share in 2015
The distributed antenna systems (DAS) market on the basis of services has been segmented into pre-sale, installation, and post-sale services. Among these, the installation services category held the largest share in 2015. This category is expected to grow at a significant rate between 2016 and 2022, driven by the wide range of installation procedures that are to be considered before laying the DAS network.
Some of the major installation services include equipment ordering, cable installation (coax, fiber, copper), equipment pre-staging and configuration, installation of head-end and remote equipment. Moreover, there should be a coordination with wireless service providers for design approval, rebroadcast agreements and commissioning (system activation). Therefore, these services contribute majorly to the growth of the DAS market.
The distributed antenna systems market for public safety vertical is expected to grow rapidly between 2016 and 2022
The distributed antenna systems (DAS) market based on vertical has been segmented into commercial and public safety verticals. Among these, the public safety vertical is expected to witness the highest growth rate between 2016 and 2022. The major reason for the growth of the public safety vertical is the adoption of DAS for public safety. The wireless signals are compromised or blocked by environmental or structural obstacles thereby diminishing the effectiveness of police and fire department personnel to respond during emergencies. Therefore, in-building wireless solutions such as DAS effectively break these barriers providing a reliable two-way cellular communications inside any structure.
The growth in the Americas region is majorly attributed to the growing adoption of DAS in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Among these, the U.S. is one of the key regions for DAS deployments owing to the increasing usage of bring your own devices (BYOD) as well the development of smart cities. Moreover, leading telecom carrier providers are increasingly adopting DAS networks to enhance their cellular coverage to offer continuous wireless connectivity.
