According to a recent report by MarketsandMarkets, the private LTE (News - Alert) and 5G network market size is expected to grow from USD 3.5 billion in 2020 to USD 10.2 billion by 2025, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 23.0% during the forecast period.

Analysts predict that the deployment of private 5G networks will enable enterprises to address specific needs, such as ultra-low latency for mission-critical applications, secure and high-speed connectivity for mobile and IoT devices, and the ability to deploy custom services.

The deployment of private wireless networks is becoming increasingly popular, as companies look for ways to enhance connectivity and support their digital transformation initiatives. Private wireless networks offer many advantages, including lower latency, increased security, and better reliability. According to a report by Omdia, private wireless networks are expected to become the preferred wireless connectivity option for industrial automation applications by 2025.
