Massive global MIMO market to reach $14.6 billion by 2026

The global Massive MIMO market estimated at US$1.6 billion in 2020, is expected to reach a revised size of US$14.6 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 44.8% over the analysis period.

Over the years, MIMO has evolved into an integral aspect of wireless communication standards, including IEEE 802.11ac (Wi-Fi), IEEE 802.11n (Wi-Fi), WiMAX, HSPA+ (3G) and 4G Long Term Evolution (4G LTE). MIMO is also applied to powerline communication for 3-wire deployments, as part of the HomePlug AV2 specification and the ITU standard.

Massive MIMO, considered an extension of the MIMO technique, promises better spectral efficiency as well as increased throughput by bringing the receive and transmit antennas closer together. Massive MIMO technology thus offers several antennas, useful for mobile devices and base stations. Massive MIMO antennas are capable of increasing system capacity, improving throughput, improving spectral efficiency, increasing resistance and reducing fading.

LTE Advanced, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is expected to register a CAGR of 37.5% and reach US$9.2 billion at the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and the induced economic crisis, the growth of the LTE Advanced Pro segment is readjusted to a revised CAGR of 47.1% for the next 7-year period.

The US market is estimated at $597.1 million in 2021, when China is expected to reach $3.3 billion by 2026

The Massive MIMO market in the United States is estimated at US$597.1 million in the year 2021. Chinathe second largest economy in the world, is expected to reach a projected market size of US$3.3 billion by 2026 with a CAGR of 54.8% over the analysis period.

Other notable geographic markets include Japan and Canada, each predicting growth of 31.2% and 38.2% respectively over the analysis period. In Europe, Germany is expected to grow at approximately 36.9% CAGR.

Rapid demand for high-speed Internet services from the residential and business sectors and strong growth in data volumes are a major driver of the massive MIMO market. Over the years, the Internet has established itself as a powerful platform transforming the way businesses operate and users communicate.

As the world’s preferred medium of communication, the Internet has played a vital role in creating a globalized world and has become the universal source of information for people and businesses around the world. The internet is constantly evolving, with mobile technology and social media being among the most recent evolutionary changes in the internet world.

The demand for the internet has grown at a steady pace over the years, driven by advancements in the digital infrastructure and services space. The demand for Internet services is particularly high in developing economies where Internet service penetration is relatively low compared to mature markets.

The rise of Internet-based applications for business and personal users contributes to the ever-increasing demand for Internet services. The growing proliferation of Internet-enabled devices is emerging as one of the main growth drivers for high-speed Internet services. Equipped with the ability to provide connectivity to the Internet, these smart devices are capable of providing users with connectivity to desired information or content.

The convergence of conventional data and voice communications with Internet Protocol-based content delivery networks is generating new services in several markets. Internet-enabled devices are poised for explosive growth in volume shipments, driven by strong growth in mobile professionals, platinum travelers and data-centric consumers to connect, share and have fun.

5G segment to be reached $2 billion by 2026

5G networks are expected to offer the highest growth opportunities in the future. Massive MIMO should attract particular attention in the 5G era due to its many advantages. Multi-antenna technology is an advanced version of standard MIMO that uses up to 8 x 8 antennas.

Current research efforts are focused on increasing the number of antennas to 100 or more using GHz frequencies and antennas with small apertures. Massive MIMO has the potential to transform wireless communications by improving data rates and link reliability while reducing error rates and costs. In addition to improving spectrum efficiency by exploiting the spatial domain, massive MIMO introduces more antennas to enable scalable use of low-cost, low-power components.

Massive MIMO is a promising option for 5G which uses higher radio spectrums compared to 2G/3G/4G, such as centimeter and millimeter waves. In the global 5G segment, UNITED STATES, Canada, Japan, China and Europe will drive the CAGR of 82.3% estimated for this segment. These regional markets represented a combined market size of 35 million US dollars in the year 2020.

China will remain among the most dynamic in this group of regional markets. Led by countries such as Australia, Indiaand South Koreathe market of Asia Pacific should reach US$606.1 million by 2026.
