North America In-building Wireless Market size surpassed USD 2 billion in 2019 and is poised to expand at a growth of over 7% from 2020 to 2026.
The market growth will be driven by strong demand for improving in-building network connectivity in the region. With rising innovations across the North America construction industry, building developers prefer high-quality components including steel reinforced floors, low-emission glass doors & windows, etc. These components restrict the wireless connectivity inside building, resulting in blind spots. In order to eliminate these blind spots, building owners and corporate enterprises can deploy distributed antenna systems and small cell components.

The in-building wireless infrastructure in the region is predicted to grow at a CAGR of 7% during the forecast timespan. The growing smartphone penetration is resulting in rising demand for base stations to provide improve cellular network. For instance, according to GSMA Intelligence’s Mobile Economy Report 2020, the number of mobile internet users reached 3.8 billion mark in 2019. To accommodate the connectivity requirements for these devices inside buildings, small cells are being preferred by offices and homes to enhance cellular coverage.
In the deployment segment, urban deployments are anticipated to observe a steady growth rate of more than 8% through 2026. In urban areas, individuals are densely concentrated and use data services more extensively. Mobile operators face challenges to identify and correct capacity shortfalls in these high traffic areas. The need of effective management of expected traffic offloads and increased network capacity in these areas is enabling telecom operators to deploy small cells.
The healthcare end-use segment is expected to register gains at over 12% till 2027 due to the rapid increase in demand for high-speed indoor network coverage in hospital environments. The use of in-building wireless solution enables a robust communication infrastructure between doctors, patients, and other team within hospital premises. In addition, the medical institutions in the market benefit from centralized management of equipment including low-voltage lightings, Wi-Fi devices, and wireless security cameras.
The Canada in-building wireless market is set to witness around 9% growth from 2020 to 2026. The growing adoption of smartphones and tablets is accelerating the demand for high margin mobile broadband services across the country. In 2019, the Canadian telecom sector generated 638,000 jobs and contributed USD 74.5 billion to the country’s GDP growth by providing wireless connectivity services across the country. As the telecom market is growing steadily in the country, operators are increasing their investments in network upgrades.
Some of the leading companies operating in the market include Advanced RF Technologies, Inc., Airspan Networks, Baicells Technologies., Bird Technologies Group, Bravo Tech, Inc. (Juniper Networks Inc.), CommScope, Inc., Corning Incorporated, Dali Wireless, Nokia Corporation, Samsung Group, SOLiD Gear, Inc., and Zinwave Limited.
Industry players are forming partnerships with telecom operators to increase the usage of in-building wireless offerings. With an estimated 80% of mobile traffic originating or terminating within a building, vendors are targeting in-building wireless networks as these crucial for efficient business operations. For instance, in March 2020, Segra, one of the largest fiber infrastructure network companies in the Eastern United States, announced the in-building wireless to help wireless carriers which are expected to meet the increased demand for more bandwidth and prepare for 5G.
