Research and Markets - Global TV White Space Spectrum Market Value of USD 53.1 Million by 2022 - Trends, Technologies & Opportunities Report 2016-2022 - Vendors: Spectrum Bridge, Meld Technology, KTS Wireless
The global TV white space spectrum market was valued at USD 1.2 Million in 2015 and is expected to reach USD 53.1 Million by 2022, at a CAGR of 74.30% during the forecast period. The major factors driving the growth of the market include the increasing regulations by various governments worldwide to adopt the TVWS technology to provide affordable broadband services especially in remote locations. In addition, continuous trials in the white space technology have proved to be useful for a wide range of end-user applications such as urban connectivity and emergency and public safety, among others.
The end-use applications of TV white space (TVWS) spectrum include rural Internet access (rural broadband), urban connectivity, emergency and public safety, smart grid networks, transportation and logistics, vehicle broadband access, and IoT and M2M. Among these applications, rural Internet access is expected to hold the largest size of the TV white space spectrum market during the forecast period. This market growth can be attributed to the continuous support from various governments and regulators for the use of the TVWS technology in providing Internet access to remote areas at a low cost. Currently, one of the major hindrances to providing Internet to these areas is the lack of affordable backhaul. The TVWS technology has proved to be the cost-effective means to serve remote areas with wireless broadband.
The TVWS spectrum market, on the basis of device, has been segmented into fixed and portable. A fixed TVWS device operates from a specified stationary location, whereas a portable device operates over shorter distances and utilizes less power. The fixed devices held the largest size of the TVWS spectrum market in 2015. However, the market for portable devices is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period. This market growth can be attributed to the significant increase in the usage of smartphones, tablets, laptops, and personal digital assistance devices in everyday life. In addition, these devices use less power and generate a relatively small spectrum footprint. Therefore, the portable white space devices can be operated in more places than fixed devices, which operate at high power and with antennas mounted.
