Research and Markets: Global LTE Metrocells Market Opportunities & Forecasts, 2018: Market to Nearly Double with a CAGR of 93%

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/lbtw29/global_lte) has announced the addition of the "Global LTE Metrocells Market Opportunities & Forecasts, 2018: Market to Nearly Double with a CAGR of 93%" report to their offering.

The Global LTE Metrocells market to grow at a CAGR of 93.68 percent over the period 2013-2018

Although LTE is witnessing a number of rollouts in the Americas and the EMEA region, the technology is yet to be embraced in the APAC region, especially by India and China. The world's largest telecom markets, by subscriber, are still in the planning phase of adopting LTE networks. The delay of deployment in China can be explained by the delay in the spectrum allocation and operators' strategy adoption of either of the two LTE types. On the other hand, operators in the Indian Telecom industry are embroiled in a number of legal, positional, and operations issues, distracting them from adopting the most efficient data technology. However, once the plans materialize, which is expected to be in the forecast period, the two large markets will project huge growth for the LTE Infrastructure market. Likewise, the other emerging markets will also have large-scale adoption, as LTE matures and becomes time tested for such markets. Additionally, factors such as the economic slowdown were looming over the Global LTE Infrastructure market, delaying purchases of the equipment. Given the high level of competition and reduction in average revenue per user, operators are expected to invest heavily in the market to retain their competitive edge.

According to the report, LTE can be regarded as both market- and product-driven. In some markets, the technology is fostered by the rising demand for enhanced features; in others, operators want to recover their 3G costs. Based on these factors, the number of LTE subscriptions globally is expected to grow exponentially during the forecast period.

Further, the report states that interference with macrocell networks is the key challenge to overcome in the Global LTE Metrocells market during 2013-2018. The weaving of femtocell equipment on the backdrop of the existing cellular macrocell network can result in interference between the two coverage networks, leading to poor quality of communication.

Key vendors dominating this space include:

  • Alcatel-Lucent SA
  • Ericsson AB
  • Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd.

Other companies mentioned in the report are:

  • Airspan Networks Inc
  • Amdocs Inc
  • Cisco Systems Inc
  • Connectem Inc
  • Ip.access Ltd
  • NEC Corp.
