The private LTE market in APAC is expected to reach US$ 2,560.44 million by 2028 from US$ 880.98 million in 2021. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 16.5% from 2021 to 2028. The advent of private LTE has brought a host of new use cases for industrial and residential uses that are anticipated to be enabled by the evolving networks over the course of years. Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) for residential use and distributed cloud for industries could be examples of these kind. The market competing with fixed broadband access is driving a need for higher bandwidth. The objective is to provide fiber-like speeds that can meet the demand for residential streaming services, such as TV and video. However, there is a limited business case to provide fixed broadband alternatives. Typical data speed demand ranges from 50 to 200 Mbps. In the market, there are virtually no existing fixed broadband alternatives, and the dominant way of accessing the internet is through mobile networks on a smartphone. Additionally, the advent of 5G network for vendors operating in the APAC private LTE market propels the market growth.
Based on end-user, the manufacturing segment led the APAC private LTE market in 2020. Private LTE lays a manufacturing site’s network so that the robotic devices don’t have to strive for coverage. The network provides a higher quality of service for a particular device. It offers a network that is fully prepared for 5G.
The COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in a massive financial loss in APAC. The governments in APAC countries are taking possible steps to reduce its effects by announcing lockdown, which is negatively affecting the manufacturing sector. China, India, South Korea, and Taiwan dominate the global manufacturing sector with significantly unparalleled and large numbers of manufacturing units. Since the emergence of the outbreak, the country has undergone several lockdown phases, which has hindered the manufacturing and construction industries. Since manufacturing is one of the prominent businesses of Asia, the scope of industry 4.0 is expanding in the region. With growing proliferation of industry 4.0, the demand for private LTE would rise in Asian economies in coming years. With ease in government measures and manufacturing units getting started to work with full capacity, the demand for industry 4.0 will continue to rise. This factor is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for the private LTE market during the forecast period.
