Wireless network infrastructure a $104 billion opportunity, says SNS Research report
DUBAI, UAE. 10th December 2013: SNS Research's latest report indicates that spending on wireless network infrastructure market which includes macrocell RAN (Radio Access Network), HetNet (Heterogeneous Network), mobile core and backhaul infrastructure is expected to reach $104 Billion by 2020.
The term “Wireless Network Infrastructure” has conventionally been associated with macrocell RAN and mobile core network infrastructure, which SNS Research estimates to account for nearly $52 Billion in spending by the end of 2014.
However, the scope of the term is expanding as wireless carriers increase their investments in Heterogeneous Network or HetNet infrastructure encompassing WiFi, small cells, Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS), Remote Radio Heads (RRH) and the emerging Cloud RAN concept. Driven by the promise of added capacity and coverage with minimum investment in additional spectrum, HetNet infrastructure is expected to account for nearly $17 Billion in spending by the end of 2014.
While macrocell RAN spending is forecast to decline at a CAGR of 3% over the next 6 years, SNS Research estimates that the overall wireless network infrastructure market encompassing macrocell RAN, HetNet, mobile core and backhaul infrastructure will witness tremendous growth over the coming years. Growing at a CAGR of over 5%, the market will account for over $104 Billion in annual spending by the end of 2020.
