Report Highlights

The Global Outdoor Wi-Fi Market is valued at USD 25.55 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach a value of USD 73.80 billion by the end of 2022, growing at a projected CAGR of 16.36% during the forecast period of 2017 - 2022. The operating frequencies of outdoor Wi-Fi are 2.4 or 5 GHz and can achieve up to a theoretical throughput of 1.7 Gbps whereas the practical throughput depends on the quality of access point and client devices.

Market Dynamics

The outdoor Wi-Fi markets are driven by the rapidly growing internet users and their need for internet access in outdoor environment, wide penetration of the smartphones and other devices, which can use Wi-Fi technologies, rising investments in development of smart cities, governments' emphasis on providing free Wi-Fi in the railway stations, bus terminals, airports, dense locations etc., growth of location-based service delivery markets. Factors that may hinder the market include expansion of mobile network technology enabling mobile network operators to provide good data connectivity, performance and connectivity issues, environmental issues, regulation of power limits, authenticity of Wi-Fi networks (data security ensuring the data is properly encrypted and not duplicated), and physical security of the outdoor devices from natural and intentional disturbances.

The ever changing requirements of high-speed internet connectivity and bandwidths for wide internet user-base, mobile smartphones, and cloud computing; and governments' focus on providing data connectivity within rural areas, are potential growth opportunities. Mobile data service operators can also offer carrier Wi-Fi to their customers.
