Demand for Open RAN Security Market Value to Reach US$ 2.6 Bn at a CAGR of 29.7%: 2023 to 2031| TMR Study


The transition to virtual RAN architecture along with the ongoing upgrade of networks to 5G necessitates the need for service providers to address Open RAN security concerns

Wilmington, Delaware, United States, March 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Transparency Market Research Inc.As per a Transparency Market Research study, the Open RAN (Radio Access Network) Market was valued at US$ 250.6 Mn in 2022 and is estimated to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 29.7% during the forecast period from 2023 to 2031.

Open RAN (Radio Access Network) is a new approach to building wireless communication networks that aim to promote interoperability, flexibility, and cost efficiency. Rather than relying on proprietary technology from a single vendor, open RAN brings in open standards and interfaces that enable network equipment from different vendors to work together seamlessly. With open RAN, operators can choose the best equipment from multiple vendors, and mix and match them to build a customized network that meets their specific needs.


Leading open RAN security market players are collaborating with other companies to expand their presence and improve revenue share. In the second half of 2022, Fortinet and NEC signed a global agreement to build secure 5G networks for communication service providers (CSPs). NEC will act as a network integrator to leverage Fortinet’s security solutions, including automation capabilities and AI-driven threat intelligence solutions, to deliver services in various countries across the globe.

Key Findings of Market Study

  • Increase in Need for Mobile Network Operators to Reduce Capital Investments and Operating Costs: Mobile network operators (MNOs) have traditionally relied on proprietary hardware and software solutions from a few vendors to build and operate their mobile networks. This approach requires significant capital investment in network infrastructure. However, with the emergence of open RAN technology, MNOs have an opportunity to reduce their capital investment and gain more control over their network infrastructure. Open RAN is a software-centric approach to building mobile networks that use standardized interfaces and open source software to allow for greater interoperability between different vendors’ hardware and software components.

    By adopting open RAN, MNOs can reduce their dependence on proprietary solutions and increase competition among vendors, thus potentially lowering costs and improving network performance. This enables MNOs to deploy new services and features swiftly, respond more nimbly to changes in customer demand, and better manage the ongoing maintenance and upgrade of their networks.

  • Surge in Demand for Open RAN Architecture: Key factor contributing to the increase in demand for Open RAN architecture is the growth in focus on speeding up interoperability testing procedures. Telecom networks and mobile operators gain cost savings, virtualization, automation and interoperability by opening up the RAN network.
