REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – February 28, 2018 – According to a recently published report from Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, Enterprise class Wireless LAN market sales accelerated to double digit growth rates in 2017, a level which has not been achieved since 2013. Developing regions of the world have become significant and the growth engine for 2018.

“The Wireless LAN market came in stronger than we predicted with notable growth coming from the Middle East, Africa, Asia outside China and Latin America,” said Trent Dell’Oro, Business Analyst at Dell’Oro Group. “These regions now represent approximately one-quarter of overall sales, and are growing more than 20 percent year-over-year. Governments and businesses alike are rapidly adopting networking technology. We all recognize that China has been on a streak blanketing the country with wireless LAN technology, but the surprise was the magnitude of the other regions. Developing regions are not just buying the lowest-priced product—high-priced, high-featured products are being widely adopted,” added Dell’Oro.

The Wireless LAN Quarterly Report covers additional highlights about the market, such as a discussion of the aggressive price discounting during the quarter, which vendors were leading the price cuts and why, and which vendors were walking away from the price war.
