Dell’Oro: WLAN market to hit $18.2 billion by 2022

The WLAN market revenue will grow to $18.2 billion by 2022, according to a new report from Dell'Oro Group. Broadband CPE and Mesh routers will fuel growth for SOHO class WLAN.

“We estimate the Enterprise and SOHO markets to maintain modest growth over the next five years,” said Ritesh Patel, Business Analyst at Dell’Oro Group. “Specifically in the SOHO market, the need for better Wi-Fi coverage and in-home management will be driven by the demand for improved network visibility and application mobility, i.e. having the ability from anywhere in the home to experience high bandwidth applications such as FaceTime, Netflix, and YouTube. Broadband CPE and Wi-Fi Router vendors will fulfill this need by integrating new wireless technology, 802.11ax, and by improving visibility into analytics and management controls. Similarly, vendors will address the need for better coverage through Mesh Routers, which will continue to see modest to high growth over the next five years,” added Patel.

The WLAN 5-Year Forecast Report highlights other key trends, including:


  • Enterprise Cloud license revenue will surpass Cloud Managed AP revenue for the first time.
  • Ethernet switch sales to aggregate WLAN are poised to eclipse switch sales lost to WLAN. See our Campus Networks Advanced Research report.
  • China eclipses the largest region, North America, in terms of units by 2020.
