Wireless Networks Infrastructure Market (2G, 3G, LTE, WiMAX, WiFi): 2012 - 2017

NEW YORK, Nov. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Wireless Networks Infrastructure Market (2G, 3G, LTE, WiMAX, WiFi): 2012 - 2017

http://www.reportlinker.com/p01045430/Wireless-Networks-Infrastructure-M...

The wireless network infrastructure market will grow by nearly 8% between 2012 and 2013, representing a $53 Billion market worldwide with nearly 1.6 Million annual macro cell base station shipments. However, the decline in 2G and 3G infrastructure spending will reduce the market's size to $50 Billion by the end of 2017, with LTE accounting for as much as 36% of all infrastructure spending at that time.

This report provides an in-depth assessment of the wireless network infrastructure market, including technology, market drivers, challenges, value chain analysis, operator and vendor strategies, and a quantitative assessment of the industry from 2010 to 2017. The report also presents forecasts for the carrier WiFi and small cells market which will have a major impact of future wireless network infrastructure spending.

The report covers the following topics:

• Business Case for Wireless Network Infrastructure: An assessment of the business case for wireless network infrastructure

• Analysis of Carrier Infrastructure Deployment Strategies: Evaluation of recent wireless infrastructure investments by carriers

• Business Case for Wireless Network Infrastructure: An assessment of the business case for wireless network infrastructure

• Wireless Network Infrastructure Industry Roadmap 2010 - 2017: An analysis of the roadmap for the industry from 2012 till 2017

• Carrier & Vendor Strategies: An analysis of how carriers and vendors will position themselves to capitalize on future wireless network infrastructure opportunities

• Market Analysis and Forecasts: A global and regional assessment of the market size (unit shipments and revenues) and forecasts for the wireless network infrastructure market from 2010 to 2017

• Industry Value Chain: An analysis of the wireless network infrastructure value chain with indicative revenue assessments of key market players across the value chain and predictions about the economic model evolution
