Of these, the mining and oil and gas industries are witnessing an overwhelming uptake. This is attributed to the implementation of robust safety rules in the workplace in these end-use industries.

Geographically, several developing regions are offering potentially lucrative avenues that market players are tapping into. Of the various regions, Asia Pacific is prognosticated to rise at the leading CAGR of 13.7% during 2016–2024. The growth is driven mainly by the adoption of smart city infrastructure in the key economies.

The global wireless mesh networks market stood at US$3.9 billion in 2015, with the demand for these networks estimated at 13.3 million units in the same year. The market is projected to touch a valuation of US$8.9 billion by 2024 end. Rising at an impressive CAGR of 9.7% during 2016–2024, the demand is expected to reach a worth of 37.2 million units by the end of the forecast period.

Several Potential Advantages over Wired Networks account for Attractively Rising Demand   

The drive for wireless mesh networks stems from the rising need for a reliable, decentralized, cost-effective and easy-to-configure networking infrastructure. Several potential advantages of these mesh networks account for their attractiveness across businesses in end-use industries. The lower power requirement, heightened data security, dynamic configuring of routes, and less cost of covering large areas, and the striking adaptability are some of the key advantages bolstering their adoption.

The growing focus on worker safety regulations provides a significant underpinning to the adoption of wireless mesh network. The substantial need for wireless connectivity in public places as key enabler for safety and emergency response systems is accentuating the demand. Moreover, the demand for highly reliable, expandable, and high-throughput network connectivity for large geographical areas is bolstering the demand for wireless mesh networks. Furthermore, the adoption of wireless mesh networks to provide near line of sight network configurations is accentuating the growth of the market.

Proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart City Initiatives open Lucrative Prospects

The proliferation of internet of things (IoT) devices and connected technologies, especially in developed regions, is providing a robust impetus to the demand for wireless mesh network infrastructure. Concerted efforts by governments and private players in several developing and developed countries for the adoption of smart city infrastructure are lending sustained thrust to the uptake of wireless mesh network. The adoption of smart metering initiatives, particularly in developed nations, is also bolstering the demand for these mesh networks.

The study presented here is based on a report by Transparency Market Research (TMR) titled “Wireless Mesh Network Market (Radio Frequency Band - Sub 1 GHz Band, 4 GHz Band, 9 GHz Band, and 5 GHz Band; Application - Hospitality, Government, Logistics, Mining, Education, and Health Care) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2016–2024
