Report: FWA revenues remain on track

November 9, 2022

Dell’Oro Group, a source for market information about the telecommunications, security, networks, and data centre industries, has announced the launch of its latest Fixed Wireless Access Infrastructure and CPE advanced research report (ARR).

Preliminary findings suggest total Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) revenues, including both RAN equipment and CPE revenue remain on track to advance 35 per cent in 2022, driven largely by subscriber growth in North America.

“Fixed Wireless Access has become a key component to bridging the digital divide and connecting rural and underserved markets globally,” said Jeff Heynen, Vice President and analyst with the Dell’Oro Group. “What we are also seeing is that FWA can effectively compete with existing fixed broadband technologies, especially with the advent of 5G and other higher-throughput, non-3GPP technologies.”

Additional highlights from the report:

  • Global FWA revenues are projected to surpass $5 billion by 2026, reflecting sustained investment and subscriber growth in both 3GPP- and non-3GPP-based network deployments.
  • The North American market remains the most dynamic in terms of deployed FWA technology options, with CBRS and other sub-6GHz options growing alongside 5G NR and 60GHz options.
  • Long-term subscriber growth is expected to occur in emerging markets in Southeast Asia and MEA, due to upgrades to existing LTE networks and a need to connect subscribers economically.
  • The Satellite Broadband market will also be a key enabler of broadband connectivity in emerging markets, thanks to LEOS-based providers including Starlink, OneWeb, and Project Kuiper.
