Enterprise WLAN Market Analysis
The Enterprise WLAN market is expected to register a CAGR of 26.5% over the forecast period. The Enterprise WLAN market continues to grow rapidly, emphasizing the importance of wireless technology in the network and digital transformation goals of organizations across the globe.
The growth of the Enterprise WLAN market is attributed to the increasing demand for reliable, high-speed, and secure wireless networks that can support the growing number of connected devices in the workplace.
As many organizations are moving their applications and data to the cloud, the requirement for a robust wireless network that can handle the increased traffic and bandwidth demands is increased. Also, as the number of devices connected to a wireless network increases, so does the risk of security breaches that can be protected using advanced security features provided by Enterprises' WLAN solutions.
The continuous growth of network infrastructure, increased demand for high-speed internet, and introduction of new wireless standards named WIFI6, also known as 802.11ax, is expected to impact the market positively. Also, regularly updating standards improves network throughput in terms of maximum speeds and transmission capabilities.
The high cost associated with the deployment and maintaining Enterprise WLAN for small and medium-sized businesses is challenging for the growth of the Enterprise WLAN market.
COVID-19 impacted Enterprise WLAN usage and deployment. The pandemic accelerated the adoption of enterprise WLAN solutions that support remote work and provide greater flexibility and scalability. It also highlighted WLAN security and the need for organizations to be able to adapt to changing traffic patterns. However, the pandemic also caused delays and challenges for WLAN deployment projects, which long-term impacted WLAN adoption and usage.
Enterprise WLAN Industry Segmentation
A wireless LAN (WLAN) is a wireless network that links two or more devices using wireless communication to make an area network (LAN) within a limited area like a home, school, computer laboratory, campus, or office block, allowing the user with quicker downloads, outstanding network reliability, making businesses more efficient.
