Segment Overview

By Ownership Type

Based on the ownership type, the global distributed antenna system market is divided into carrier ownership, neutral-host ownership, and enterprise ownership. The neutral-host ownership category dominates the market with the largest revenue share of around 33.2% in 2022. The market for distributed antenna systems worldwide has seen the greatest market share held by the neutral-host ownership sector. The term "neutral-host ownership" refers to DAS installations that are owned and run by neutral hosts, or independent third-party providers. These independent hosts make DAS infrastructure investments and then rent out network capacity to various wireless carriers and service providers. Multiple operators may use the same DAS infrastructure thanks to this ownership arrangement, which lowers costs and boosts productivity.


By Application

Based on application, the global distributed antenna system market is divided into airports & transportation, public venues & safety, education sector & corporate offices, hospitality, industrial, healthcare, and others. The public venues & safety category is anticipated to grow at a higher CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period. The need for dependable wireless communication and coverage is rising as more people are congregating in public spaces including stadiums, airports, retail malls, and conference centers. Distributed antenna solutions, which increase network capacity and guarantee smooth connectivity for a high number of users in such locations, provide an efficient response to this need.


By Type

Based on the type, the global distributed antenna system market is divided into active DAS, passive DAS, and hybrid DAS. The passive DAS category is anticipated to grow at a higher CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period. Passive DAS provides cost-effective options for improving wireless coverage and capacity in large interior spaces without the need of active components such as signal boosters. As a result, passive DAS is particularly appealing for usage in commercial buildings, colleges, and stadiums. Passive DAS systems are becoming more popular as the demand for dependable connection and smooth wireless communication in interior environments grows.


By Signal Source

Based on signal source, the global distributed antenna system market is divided into off-air antennas, on-site base transceiver station, and small cells. The off-air antennas category is anticipated to grow at a higher CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period, during the projection period, the off-air antennas category is expected to increase the most. This expansion can be ascribed to a variety of sources. The growing demand for over-the-air broadcasting services, such as television and radio, fuels the need for off-air antennas. The growing popularity of cord-cutting and streaming services has resulted in an increase in over-the-air TV reception, increasing demand for off-the-air antennas.


Global Distributed Antenna System Market Overview by Region

By Region, the market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. North America had the largest revenue share, of around 32.8% in 2022. This growth is because the region has advanced technologically and has adopted wireless communication technology. The region is home to a huge number of large-scale commercial buildings, stadiums, and public events that require reliable wireless coverage, fueling demand for DAS systems. It has led the way in 5G rollout, with telecom companies investing extensively in infrastructure improvements. The necessity to support 5G networks' higher data capacity and enhanced network performance has accelerated DAS implementation in the region.
