Global Distributed Antenna Systems Market 2016-2020
About Distributed Antenna Systems
DAS or distributed antenna systems are components that are used to boost cellular network coverage to deal with dead spots or isolated spots of poor coverage. These isolated or dead spots are mostly in large buildings, especially in closed locations, where the cellular network is the weakest. DAS are installed as a network of a large number of small antennas installed across the building in order to strengthen the cellular network.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global distributed antenna systems (DAS) market to grow at a CAGR of 1.92% during the period 2016-2020.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global distributed antenna systems (DAS) market: American Tower, Cobham, Comba Telecom System Holdings, and CommScope.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Advanced RF Technologies, Corning, Dali Wireless, Fiber-Span, Harris Communications, KATHREIN-Werke KG, Westell, and Zinwave.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The availability of multiple features on a single platform is an emerging trend in the global DAS market. This is possible because of the rapid advances in technology in different electronic devices such as notebooks, laptops, and smartphones. These devices are increasingly functioning as multifunctional interfaces that offer a range of new applications on a single platform. Thus, the need for better signal reception is becoming more relevant than ever.”
According to the report, emergence of next-generation wireless networks will be a key driver for market growth. Due to the increasing popularity of mobile communication devices, the network traffic is increasing exponentially. As a result, there is a continuous global deployment of next-generation wireless networks, such as 3G, 4G, and 5G, that offer wireless connections equivalent to home broadband connections. This, in turn, increases the number of users accessing the Internet from anywhere at any time. With such growing penetration of wireless connectivity, the need for DAS becomes more evident as cellular operators need to ensure strong signal delivery to all the wireless cellular based devices, minimizing the dead spots, especially indoors. As DAS support multiple cellular operators, they are the first option when it comes to offering a robust and cost-effective solution to customers.
Further, the report states that intense competition among market vendors is another major challenge in the global DAS market. The market is highly competitive because of rapid technological changes, evolving standards, and high product obsolescence. As a result, DAS vendors such as CommScope and SOLiD have to upgrade constantly and develop high-performance and cost-effective DAS. Vendors also aggressively price their products to respond quickly to opportunities in the market and meet increased demand. Factors such as these are reducing revenue and gross margins, which affects the profitability of vendors.
