Request For Special Pricing

The Middle East and Africa (MEA) Wi-Fi as a Service (WaaS) market size is projected to grow from USD 336 million in 2020 to USD 1,094 million by 2025, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 26.6% during the forecast period. The major factors driving the growth of the MEA Wi-Fi as a service market include Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) and Operational Expenditure (OPEX) savings using as service models and growing Internet of Things (IoT) connection across enterprises.

Wireless local area network controllers segment to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period

Based on solutions, the Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) controllers segment is projected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. WLAN controllers help network operation teams to configure, manage, and control Access Points (APs) located across different locations. It is important for enterprises to choose the right set of controllers that match the requirement of Wi-Fi networks. Generally, the selection of controllers depends on the number that are expected to use and access the Wi-Fi network. For instance, large enterprises cater to more number of Wi-Fi users as compared to Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs).

Indoor segment to hold a higher market share during the forecast period

Based on the location type, the indoor segment is projected to lead the MEA Wi-Fi as a service market during the forecast period. The use of business applications, such as Unified Communication (UC), cloud, enterprise mobility, and collaboration tools across all the sectors; penetration of Bring Your Won Device (BYOD) devices in enterprises; and increasing mobile traffic in indoor environments are the key driving factors for the large-scale adoption of indoor Wi-Fi services.

Saudi Arabia to record the highest market share in 2020

Saudi Arabia is among the world’s 25 largest economies and the largest free-market economy in the MEA. The country accounts for about 25% of the total Arab Gross Domestic Product (GDP) with per capita income expected to reach USD 33,500 by 2020. The domestic market is growing by about 3.5% per annum, which ensures a young consumer population with good purchasing power. The country has approximately 50% of youth under 25 years of age. The young and tech-savvy population has helped the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector boost its GDP contribution to four percent, with Saudi Arabia rising 16 places in the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitive Index “ICT adoption” category.

The study involved four major activities in estimating the current market size for the Middle East and Africa (MEA) Wi-Fi as a Service (WaaS) market. An exhaustive secondary research was done to collect information on the MEA Wi-Fi as a service market. The next step was to validate these findings, assumptions, and sizing with industry experts across the value chain using primary research. Both top-down and bottom-up approaches were employed to estimate the total market size. After that, the market breakup and data triangulation procedures were used to estimate the market size of the segments and subsegments of the MEA Wi-Fi as a service market.

Secondary Research

In the secondary research process, various secondary sources, such as D&B Hoovers, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, and Dun & Bradstreet, were referred to identify and collect information for this study. These secondary sources included annual reports, press releases, and investor presentations of companies; whitepapers, certified publications (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers [IEEE]), and articles by recognized authors; gold standard and silver standard websites; regulatory bodies; trade directories; and databases.

Primary Research

The MEA Wi-Fi as a service market comprises several stakeholders, such as Wi-Fi vendors, Wi-Fi service providers, venture capitalists, government organizations, regulatory authorities, policymakers, and financial organizations, consulting firms, research organizations, academic institutions, resellers and distributors and training providers. The demand side of the Wi-Fi market consists of all the firms operating in several industry verticals. The supply side includes WaaS providers, offering Wi-Fi solution and services. Various primary sources from both the supply and demand sides of the market were interviewed to obtain qualitative and quantitative information. Given below is the breakup of the primary respondents:

Market Size Estimation

The top-down and bottom-up approaches were used to estimate and validate the size of the MEA Wi-Fi as a service market and various other dependent submarkets in the overall market. An exhaustive list of all the vendors who offer solutions and services in the Wi-Fi market was prepared while using the top-down approach. The market share for all the vendors in the market was estimated through annual reports, press releases, funding, investor presentations, paid databases, and primary interviews. Each vendor was evaluated based on its components (hardware, software, and services). The aggregate of all companies’ revenues was extrapolated to reach the overall market size.

Further, each subsegment was studied and analyzed for its regional market size and country level penetration. The markets were triangulated through both primary and secondary research. The primary procedure included extensive interviews for key insights from the industry leaders, such as Chief Executive Officers (CEOs), Vice Presidents (VPs), directors, and managers.

Data Triangulation

After arriving at the overall market size using the market size estimation processes as explained above, the market was split into several segments and subsegments. The data triangulation and market breakup procedures were employed, wherever applicable, to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics of each market segment and subsegment. The data was triangulated by studying various factors and trends from both the demand and supply sides.
