Replacement of old electricity and gas meters with the new connected smart meters has also increased the demand for wireless mesh networks during the recent years. In 2018, North America held the major market share in terms of revenue generated from wireless mesh networks globally, followed by Europe. However, Asia Pacific and Latin America are forecast to grow at a faster rate than these mature markets.
Among the wireless mesh network radio frequency bands, 2.4 GHz held the largest market share of approximately 59.6% in 2018, as the 2.4 GHz is an open license band which offers up to 14 channels for communication. It has comparatively more range of connectivity than the higher frequency bands. Voice, video and data connectivity applications use the 2.4 GHz frequency band for better connectivity. Also, it has high penetration capabilities for obstacles such as thick wall and ceiling. 2.4 GHz frequency band is a globally accepted band and devices operating in this frequency are readily available. In the application segment, others section accounted for a major share of revenue in 2018. Mining and oil and gas industries have the highest adoption of wireless mesh network. Worker safety rules and regulations have forced enterprises to install security applications within the facilities. These security applications are using wireless mesh networks for communication and connectivity. Underground mining operations poses a great amount of risk to worker’s health, wireless mesh networks can provide reliable connectivity for continuous communication with the control center. However, the government section is expected to grow at the fastest rate due to increasing implementation in the public safety and communication infrastructure. Smart city projects are being implemented by government institutes for improving the overall operations and functions involved in the day connected environment.
