Cloud-RAN Market Research Report - Size, Share, Trends,
Analysis and Forecast 2014 To 2020: Hexa Research
Cloud-RAN (Radio Access Network) is also known as centralized-RAN or C-RAN. It facilitates
the expansion of mobile networks by addressing issues pertaining to their capacity and
coverage. C-RAN reduces operational expenses and offers better network security. It also
makes the network agile and flexible. Apart from these, Cloud-RAN also enables software
control and management, and network self-configuration.
It does this through SDN - Software Defined Networking, and NVF - Network Functions
Virtualization. China Mobile Communications Corporation was the initiator of Cloud-RAN
network architecture. It introduced Cloud-RAN in April 2010 at its research institute. The
company estimates total ownership costs to reduce by 30-60 percent due to the rising adoption
of Cloud-RAN.

Growth Drivers
The Cloud-RAN market was worth USD 1.7 billion in 2013. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of
45.9% over the next five years. By 2018, the total market revenues will reach approximately
USD 11.5 billion.
Network architectures that support efficient operations, reduced power consumption, agility, and
reliability are indispensible to modern businesses. Cloud-RAN’s centralized processing greatly
reduces the number of base station sites. Cloud-RAN architecture improves spectrum
efficiency. Its load-balancing capability permits the efficient handling of non-uniform data traffic.
These advantages are contributing to the growth of the Cloud-RAN market. Rapid
developments in telecommunications technology is also a critical market driver. The widespread
use of tablets and smartphones all over the world coupled with high broadband penetration also
proves favorable for the market. More than 88% of the North Americans living in urban areas
uses either a smartphone, or a tablet, or both.
Increasing data traffic that generates the need for improved and more affordable
communications network will fuel the market. Mobile data traffic in the world increased by more
than 80% in 2013. By 2018, it is anticipated to surpass 15.8 exabytes - EBs per month.
Challenges
Although Cloud-RAN architecture offers considerable savings, it requires huge initial
investments. This is expected to deter the Cloud-RAN market. Furthermore, its set-up is
dependent on the availability of fiber. Only those players with ample fiber resources can execute
Cloud-RAN architecture on a large scale. This is a key reason for the restriction of Cloud-RAN
deployment in the fiber-rich Korean, Chinese, and Japanese companies.

To overcome this challenge, market players are targeting various substitutes offered by
communications technology. These include wireless fronthaul, bi-directional fiber, and CPRI
(Common Public Radio Interface) compression. Players lacking significant fiber footprints also
resort to ‘local centralization.’ This involves centralizing neighbor base stations within a limited
area that requires better performance triggered by huge data traffic.
