The private LTE market in Europe is expected to reach US$ 2,020.88 million by 2028 from US$ 902.06 million in 2021. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 12.2% from 2021 to 2028. The increasing adoption of the Industry 4.0, industrial IoT, and automated technology are significantly fueling the demand for private LTE. Moreover, the continuous advancements in connectivity drive the market growth. Increasing connected devices in the manufacturing sector are generating a huge amount of data, and this data needs to be analyzed effectively for smooth business operations. The rising investments in machine-to-machine (M2M) and traditional IoT have enabled a significant increase in the economies of scale that propelled the adoption of private LTE across the manufacturing sector. Additionally, surging demand for reliable and efficient communications network infrastructure is among the other factors expected to bolster the growth of the Europe private LTE market during the forecast period.
The Europe private LTE market for the TDD segment is expected to grow faster during the forecast period. Time division duplex (TDD) does not require paired spectrum, as transmission and receiving take place at the same channel. It has a low hardware cost as no diplexer is needed to isolate the receiver and transmitter. The propagation is same in both the direction. Due to the high-speed nature of the data, the communicating parties cannot tell that the transmissions are intermittent. The transmissions are concurrent rather than simultaneous. Due to the lower cost and faster transmission, the adoption of TDD is expected to be high during the forecast period.
In Europe, Spain, Italy, Germany, the UK, and France are among the worst affected member states due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Russia, Germany, Turkey, and the UK are a few of the countries with millions of internet users and mobile subscribers. European countries are the major markets for private LTE demand. The western European countries witness high demand for LTE due to established IT infrastructure. The maturity of IT infrastructure is mainly ascribed to high awareness related to the advanced technologies, strong internet infrastructure, and capital investment capability among companies in the region. As Europe has the presence of well-established healthcare and manufacturing industries, the demand for reliable internet connectivity from the same industries has increased during the COVID-19 outbreak to keep business activities uninterrupted. The growing demand for reliable connection would drive the private LTE market growth in Europe amid the pandemic
