Open RAN to Account for More Than 10 Percent of RAN Market
worldwide sales of Open RAN revenues are forecasted to grow at double-digit
rates over the next six years with cumulative Open RAN investments – including
hardware, software, and firmware excluding services – projected to approach $10
B over the 2020-2025 forecast period.
Short-term projections have been adjusted upward while the near-term outlook has been revised slightly downward, reflecting the state of the market for both greenfield and brownfield networks.
Cumulative Virtualized RAN revenues—here defined as the proportion of RAN baseband/compute capex that will utilize general-purpose processors for CU and/or DU—are projected to surpass $5 B over the forecast period.
