U.S. Warehouses and Storage Buildings: Wireless and Cellular Nodes Forecast, 2019-2024

There are many thousands of warehouses and storage buildings in the U.S. Not all of these buildings are candidates for in-building wireless (IBW) systems, but many are – and many already have distributed antenna systems (DAS) and Wi-Fi systems deployed to improve the accuracy of warehouse operations.

This market study provides a five-year forecast for the number of Sub 6 GHz, CBRS, mmWave and Wi-Fi nodes expected to be deployed in the U.S. Five-year total addressable market forecasts for these technologies are also provided.

This version 2.0 of the market study provides an updated forecast based on the expected impact of the global virus COVID-19, as iGR understands it today.
