Infonetics: China’s Colossal LTE Rollouts Make Asia the World’s Largest LTE Market

Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 2nd quarter 2014 (2Q14) 2G, 3G, LTE Mobile Infrastructure and Subscribers report, which tracks more than 50 categories of equipment, software, and subscribers based on current generations of wireless network technology.

ANALYST NOTE

“The astronomical LTE ramp-up in China is overshadowing strong LTE rollouts in Europe, reminiscent of China’s great 3G rollout in 2009,” says Stéphane Téral, principal analyst for mobile infrastructure and carrier economics at Infonetics Research.

China Mobile kicked off its massive TD-LTE rollout and finished the second quarter of 2014 with 410,000 eNodeBs. This propelled Asia Pacific to roughly $3 billion, or 54%, of total LTE revenue, making the region the largest LTE revenue generator by far,” continues Téral. “Meanwhile, China Unicom and China Telecom also deployed LTE, but at a more measured pace.”

MOBILE INFRASTRUCTURE MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  • Globally, the macrocell 2G/3G/4G mobile infrastructure market totaled $11.2 billion in 2Q14, up 4% from 1Q14 and up 11% from 2Q13
    • Growth was a result of a strong LTE ramp-up in China that created a huge eNodeB spike, capacity upgrades in the US, and sustained activity in Europe, India, and the Middle East
  • LTE accounted for half of overall mobile infrastructure revenue in 2Q14, hitting $5.6 billion (+8% over 1Q14)
  • In 2Q14, LTE rollouts fully offset the abyssal decline of 2G/3G and were again characterized by an interesting dynamic: Evolved-UTRAN (E-UTRAN) posted strong double-digit growth, while evolved packet core (EPC) took a deep dive
  • 318 commercial LTE networks have been launched worldwide as of July 28, 2014, according to the Global Mobile Suppliers Association (GSA)
  • A bump in CDMA2000 and LTE rollouts has lifted Infonetics’ global macrocell 2G/3G/4G mobile infrastructure market forecast, which is now anticipated to peak at $43.6 billion this year, up from $43 billion in 2013

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
