The increase in adoption of mobile-based technology for various functions by end-users across the world has resulted in a steep increase in mobile data traffic. Densifying the network in selected areas is expected to enable carriers to cope with the increasing demand for high speed connectivity throughputs. Such high dependence on the usage of mobile data has effectively driven in the installation of small cells to reduce the bottle-necks and offer its end-users the best quality of service (QoS) possible n the available spectrum. Small cells can be deployed in licensed and un-licensed spectrum which helps in providing seamless connectivity to its end users. Such usage of small cells helps in reducing the overall cost of operations, thereby improving revenues.

The major focus of the telecom operators is on improving radio frequency and network in the available spectrum by deploying more small cells and LTE base stations in the operating circles. Small cells also provide flexibility and improve the service quality across the network by reducing the length and loss of the terminal-base station signal path of the service provider at a comparatively lower cost. By deploying more small cells in the region, a telecom operator also can reduce the level of radiation which is emitted from the mobile towers. Many communication service providers (CSPs) install cells such as micro and pico base cells. These cells are small in size with fully integrated base stations and can be installed in remote places, thereby reducing the overall cost of setting up infrastructure in remote locations.

It is estimated that network congestion and mobile traffic contributes to 40%-50% of the total telecom expenditure; thus, it is of utmost importance for telecom operators to reduce the cost associated with network congestion by providing a strong spectrum in the deployed region. With the increase in the number of mobile-based broadband subscribers, the bandwidth requirement for advanced applications is also increasing, which if not optimized by improving network bandwidth, would lead to severe network congestion. Hence, the telecom operators implement cost-effective and efficient communication solutions to cater to the network traffic which reduces both network congestions and their operational costs.

The small cell networks market research report outlines the key trends and forecasts for various emerging subsegments of the market. It also provides insights into the current and future revenues of market from 2015 to 2020 and is aimed to provide the reader with an understanding of market drivers, current and upcoming players, and competitive landscape.

The global small cell networks market is estimated to grow from USD 1.06 Billion in 2015 to USD 3.92 Billion in 2020, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 29.8% during the forecast period.

The small cell networks market is thriving, and in the coming years, it is expected to present huge potential to various CSPs, network equipment manufacturers, and IT infrastructure equipment providers. In this research report, the small cell network market has been segmented into solutions, applications, and service segments across various geographical regions, such as North America, Europe, APAC, MEA, and Latin America.
