“The Government funding that started flowing into the Wireless LAN market in 2Q this year blossomed in 3Q 2020, adding what we estimate to be about $200 M to the market,” said Tam Dell’Oro, Founder, CEO, and Wireless LAN Analyst at Dell’Oro Group. “While many governments around the world have incentivized technology investments, the funding we saw in 3Q was most pronounced in the USA and in particular in lower-Education (Kindergarten through 12th grade). What surprised me was the strength in the Retail segment, which held up better than segments such as Hospitality and Logistics. Many stores have not been able to operate till recently, but retail businesses supplying necessities have performed well,” added Dell’Oro.
