·3 min read

The "Distributed Antenna System Market by Technology, Type (Active, Passive, Hybrid), Coverage (Outdoor and Indoor), Operator (Carrier, Enterprise, Neutral Host) and Industry Vertical 2021 - 2026" report has been added to's offering.

This report assesses the Distributed Antenna System (DAS) ecosystem and its impact on wireless network infrastructure deployment and operations including outdoor and indoor environments. It also analyzes the relationship between DAS and various supporting technologies such as self-organizing networks, artificial intelligence, and 5G smart antenna techniques. The report provides forecasts for DAS equipment, applications, services and system deployment from 2021 - 2026.

The report evaluates the market by coverage (outdoor and indoor), DAS type (active, passive, and hybrid), operator type (carriers, enterprise, and neutral hosts), and industry vertical use cases and related market opportunities. Use cases include consumer devices, factory automation, connected vehicles and various IoT-enabled services (People to People, People to Machine, and Machine to Machine). The report takes into consideration many optimization issues such as coverage, capacity, and spectrum management.

Select Report Findings:

  • Global DAS market will reach $12.5B USD by 2026, growing at 11.3 CAGR

  • DAS market associated with 5G smart antennas will reach $6.51 USD by 2026

  • Indoor DAS has growth potential of seven times that of outdoor implementation

  • Active DAS deployments will lead the market followed by hybrid and passive DAS

  • North America will lead the overall market in terms of DAS deployments and revenue

  • 5G smart antenna systems depend upon DAS and are therefore complementary markets

  • Leading ownership and control of DAS will be carriers, enterprise and neutral hosts respectively

DAS represents a network of spatially separated antenna nodes, connected to a common source via a transport medium that provides wireless service within a geographic area or structure. DAS leverages Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technology, which allows networks to take advantage of multiple signals as a means of optimizing wireless communications.

A DAS installation includes antennas, control boxes, and fiber optics connected to a hub. These Nodes include small antennas that unobtrusively blend into their environment. Often deployed at existing public infrastructure (such as utility poles, light posts, and traffic signals), DAS networks rely upon the ability to seamlessly blend into their environment, which may be outdoor or indoors.

Relevant to DAS, Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technology commercially started with 802.11n, which has gained strong acceptance in networks with the launch of WiMAX and LTE operations. DAS will also be a very important component of 5G networks along with smart antennas, which rely upon certain RF propagation techniques such as beam-forming.
