Market Overview

TThe Wireless Mesh Networking market was valued at USD 4.98 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 9.66 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 11.7% over the forecast period 2021 - 2026. The global wireless mesh networking (WMN) market is estimated to expand significantly, over the forecast period, due to advancements in the wireless communication sector. Resilient communications, low financial cost, and flexible scale are some of the major advantages driving the deployment of this technology.

  • These networks also have the advantage of auto-configuration and self-organization capability. They can enhance coverage, capacity, and availability by just deploying more WAPs without disturbing other nodes, making them easy to expand.
  • Increasing IoT adoption and industrial automation among all sectors are some of the major market trends aiding advancements in the wireless mesh networking market. Innovations in this technology are also creating new applications in various markets, like the fixed wireless market.
  • Due to connectivity advantage and low cost, wireless mesh networking (WMN) is also best suited for tracking pallets and monitoring large physical objects with a highly reliable wireless connectivity network. WMNs easily track key data across the factory floor and multiple locations to identify any issues before their occurrence. This is attracting many vendors to offer industry-oriented product
  • With growing automation in the agriculture sector, technology is also great for tracking sun exposure and water levels in crops. It can scale at a low cost with mesh enabled nodes across a whole land, to develop a cellular connected IoT farm.

Scope of the Report

A wireless mesh network is a communications network made up of radio nodes organized in a mesh topology. It is also a form of wireless ad hoc network. A mesh refers to rich interconnection among devices or nodes. Wireless mesh networks often consist of mesh clients, mesh routers and gateways. In terms of architecture, wireless mesh network is being segregated as Infrastructure Wireless Mesh Networks, Hybrid Wireless Mesh networks, client wireless mesh networks.
