A visible demand from SME’s for high speed due to technological shift of operations and data management on to cloud platforms will further push this market. Support by governments in order to promote digitalization and online monetary transections alongside developments in remote city management systems will positively impact the demand for wireless infrastructure. This market is a crucial component in current technological ecosystem.

For instance according to a report published by statistia.com about 4.9 billion was the number of global internet user this is more than half the world’s populations. This number will only rise in coming years as the technology develops.


Wireless infrastructure refers to the networking skeleton that facilitate flow of information within the connected components through multiple access points. Networks like 4g, 5g, and 3g encompasses it. Following are some major components of wireless infrastructure DAS (distributed antenna system), carrier Wi-Fi, mobile core, backhaul core, satellite connections and others. BYOD (bring your own device) And WFH (work from home) concepts are acting as accelerators in the growth of wireless infrastructure.


Rise in 4G, LTE, 5G high speed network connectivity is the main driver for augmented requirement for wireless infrastructure. Trends like BYOD, WYOD in work environment are positively impacting the requirement. Furthermore, surge in IOT, AI based devices and increasing demand for high-speed connectivity from commercial communication industry like BPO are some more factors. Surging demand for Satellite based connectivity from defense and marine industries is another major drivers propelling the demand. In addition to these factors lofty investment by governments and businesses in research and development alongside large scale adoption of smartphones globally are also among few other driving factors.


Inclusion of high cost of development and design of wireless network component acts as major factor hampering this market’s growth additionally high risk of cyber-attacks and data breaches are also responsible for obstructing complete shift towards wireless transmission. Another major hurdle for this market is distortion and hampered speed of data transmission over long distances than wired networks. Resistance from wildlife activist over implementation of wireless transmission technologies due to their adverse effects on birds caused by high intensity electromagnetic waves is also a factor which could hamper or slowdown the adoption rate. Following are few restraints encircling the wireless infrastructure market.

 Covid-19 Impact:

COVID -19 had a negative impact similar to various other industries initially. Mainly due to supply chain interruptions and halted manufacturing activities. Businesses were unable to procure essential components due to restrictions resulting into delayed expansion of networks structures. But In the hind side overall COVID -19 had a positive impact on this industry as it augmented the pace of digital transformation. Now business were incorporating cloud solutions in their core operations additionally there was a trend to integrate several technologies in functions like supply chain management, inventory management and others these functions requisites high speed uninterrupted connectivity over large distances resulting into augmented demand for wireless infrastructure . Now in the year 2022 there are no longer major issues with supply chains baring china issue and business have restarted the rollout and development of network infrastructures as pre COVID levels.
