[195 Pages Report] The TV White Space Spectrum Market size was estimated at USD 176.74 million in 2023 and expected to reach USD 204.25 million in 2024, at a CAGR 16.14% to reach USD 503.97 million by 2030.

The TV white space spectrum (TVWS) refers to the unused portions of the very high frequency (VHF) and ultra-high frequency (UHF) television bands that are not used by broadcasters. The scope and potential for TV White Space Spectrum encompasses various applications such as rural broadband access, urban connectivity, smart grid networks, and smart meters. The vacant frequency bands have been identified as potential resources for providing wireless broadband connectivity in underserved regions and urban areas with high demand for internet services and facilitating the transition from analog to digital broadcasting. The growing demand for machine-to-machine communications and rising adoption and preference for Internet of Things (IoT) devices has fuelled the adoption of the TV white space spectrum. TVWS is also associated with lower path loss, longer transmission range, and higher penetration ability, which results in a reduced number of base stations required and helps achieve superior mobility. However, high capital costs associated with setting up the infrastructure for TVWS deployment deter the entry of emerging players. Interference from adjacent channels or existing TV broadcasters can also pose challenges that need to be addressed through efficient spectrum management techniques. Efforts by major players and the growing number of R&D activities to develop advanced modulation techniques and interference mitigation algorithms can enhance spectral efficiency and improve performance.

Regional Insights

In the United States, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has played a pivotal role in facilitating the deployment of the TV White Space (TVWS) spectrum. In the Americas, the success of TVWS in countries such as the US and Canada has largely been driven by favorable policies and regulations by governments. The growing number of industrialization and digitalization activities coupled with the rising number of smart grids has fueled the need for robust communication networks. European Union countries have been actively involved in research and development related to TVWS technology. Collaborative efforts between various industry players have played a significant role in facilitating the utilization of TVWS in Europe. The demand for high-speed internet connectivity is growing exponentially across APAC countries, particularly in rural and remote areas where traditional broadband services are not always available or affordable. The rapid growth of internet users, coupled with the growing adoption of smart devices and other connected, IoT-based equipment, has resulted in surging demand for wireless broadband services in the APAC region.
