U.S. Stadiums & Arenas: Wireless and Cellular Nodes Forecast, 2019-2024

Counting professional sports teams, college athletics and high school sports, there are several thousand stadiums/arenas in the U.S. Not all of these stadiums/arenas 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 handle attendee data traffic.

This market study provides a five-year forecast for the number of LTE, 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.
