U.S. Logistics Private CBRS Network Forecast, 2021-2026: CBRS Network Build, Integration and App Spending in Manufacturing, Warehouse, Retail and Transportation Buildings

This report focuses on the private CBRS network opportunity in the logistics function which includes the following industries: Manufacturing, Warehouse & Storage, Retail, and Transportation (focused on rail- and air-cargo). Logistics is a huge topic about which much has been written. At a high level, the term is variously defined as:

  • Managing how resources are acquired, stored, and transported to their destination(s).
  • Planning and executing the transportation and storage of goods from the point of origin to the point of consumption.

For this report, iGR defines an in-building private cellular system as one that uses the U.S. CBRS band for 4G/5G-based services and is funded by a third party distinct from a Mobile Network Operator (MNO). Note that iGR includes campus-wide cellular networks within the “in-building” umbrella. In this report, a “campus” deployment includes, for example, the loading and unloading area of a manufacturing facility, warehouse or distribution center, an open-air shopping area, or the vast acreage covered by ports and airports.

This market study provides a five-year forecast for spending on private cellular systems using CBRS for logistics and supply chain applications in four types of U.S. buildings/campuses:

  • Manufacturing
  • Warehouse and Storage
  • Retail
  • Transportation (airports, railway stations/terminals, ports).

The three types of spending include:

  • Network build and operational spending: the costs associated with installing and operating the private CBRS network
  • Network/systems integration spending: the costs associated with designing, sourcing equipment, integrating the network and applications, etc.
  • Applications: the costs associated with purchasing and licensing the applications that run on the private CBRS network.
