The self-organizing network (SON) market is expected to grow from USD 3.64 billion in 2018 to USD 6.39 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 11.9% between 2018 and 2023. The need to manage the growing network complexity with the increasing number of small cells and the high demand for wireless connectivity are the factors that drive the growth of the SON market. Further, the virtualization of mobile networks, along with the rapid adoption of open application programming interfaces (APIs), is also another contributing factor to the market growth.

The demand for SON software due to the upcoming 5G and growth of 4G technology is expected to grow significantly over the next 5 years. SON was significantly used by the operator for 3G/HSPA+ optimization initially. With the proper rollout of LTE across developing economies, 4G SON solutions have been adopted; therefore, the market 4G SON systems is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period.

The market for services pertaining to SON offerings is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2018 to 2023 owing to the growing importance of post-sales services, including training and installation services, with respect to SON solutions. The SON software has considerably long lifecycle; however, service providers need to regularly update this software to enhance functionalities, provide new features, and offer users with the latest experience.

Self-Organizing Network Market

Asia Pacific is expected to surpass North America to become the largest market for SON software and services by 2023. This is mainly attributed to the growing number of planned deployments of LTE networks in emerging economies of APAC.

The need for huge capital investment for the deployment of SON solutions is anticipated to restrict the market growth primarily for a small telecom service provider. Further, limited in-house skillset to manage SON is expected to pose challenges to market players.

Airspan (US), TEOCO (US), Ericsson (Sweden), Cisco (US), Amdocs (US), Huawei (China), NEC (Japan), Nokia (Finland), Rohde & Schwarz (Germany), Qualcomm (US), VIAVI Solutions (US), Cellwize (Singapore), BLiNQ Networks (Canada), Bwtech (Brazil), Comarch (Poland), Casa Systems (US), Airhop (US), CCS Ltd. (UK), CommScope (US), and P.I. Works (Turkey) are a few key players in the SON market. These players adopted strategies such as product launches and developments, acquisitions, partnerships, collaborations, and contracts to grow in the market.

Drivers

Need to manage growing network complexity with increasing number of small cells

Nowadays, service providers require more complex quality of service and policy implementation while increasing their network throughput to respond to the rapid growth of wireless data. The increasing demand for higher bandwidth spectrum, rising mobile data traffic load on present networks, and growing adoption of advanced and multi-technologies by telecom service providers are a few major factors boosting the adoption of small cells to fulfill the increasing demand for data performance. Additionally, the increasing prevalence of 4G has been posing significant operational and network complexity. Thus, problems that arise are related to the backhaul connectivity and the management of a large number of small cells to optimize capacity and offer coverage with minimal interference from nearby cells (eNodeBs) can be solved using SON solutions, which help in faster deployment and rollout of the network with lesser human intervention.

Virtualization of mobile networks

Virtualization of mobile networks has become a reality since 2017. The deployment of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), which is a cloud-based model, and software-defined networking (SDN) by telecom service providers/network operators helped them to create flexible, virtual, and simple mobile networks, reduce the network infrastructure cost, offer services at a rapid rate, improve scalability of services, and ultimately increase their revenue. In addition, various service providers are focusing on expanding their business offerings to include private and public cloud services using the same efficient and common infrastructure. Thus, the growing adoption of virtualization in mobile networks has led to the increased demand for SON solutions at present, and key architectural shift to 5G and IoT networks will further fuel the demand for SON solutions in the next few years.

Opportunities

Upcoming 5G network

The deployment of 5G will add a large number of subscribers, along with the growing number of higher-bandwidth data applications and services for incredible high throughput across the network. In the current network infrastructure, a lot of capacity is being wasted due to the manual configuration and optimization. SON can be used to address the issue of network complexity through advanced automation. SON is already familiar with network management, fault management, and optimizing coverage, capacity, and network performance and will be implementing it in 5G. 5G base stations, self-healing applications will detect anomalies and try to repair any issues without impacting the network reliability.
