Mobile and Wireless Backhaul Market Global Forecast to 2018
The global mobile and wireless backhaul market is foreseeing traction, with growing small-cell deployment, exploding popularity of smart devices, innovation in mobile technology, and more. Nowadays, backhaul has become a critical point of consideration for mobile operators and continuing with traditional technologies is no longer cost-effective for backhauling of mobile data traffic.†Cost of backhauling constitutes the major portion of an operatorís capital expenditure. So, it has become essential for the mobile operators to find cost-effective mobile and wireless backhaul solutions. Also, requirements for backhaul capacity are rapidly increasing and mobile operators are enforced to meet these requirements, in order to deliver quality services.
In reference to equipments in the mobile and wireless backhaul equipment space, major contribution is expected from microwave, as its existence in the backhaul market is from long time and most of the mobile operators still use microwave backhaul equipments because of their reliable features. In spite of microwave equipment holding the largest share in the mobile and wireless backhaul equipment market, other equipment categories are expected to experience traction in the coming years, because of the increasing need for non-line-of-sight connectivity in highly dense areas. The mobile and wireless backhaul market is highly impacted by various geographical regions, because of different Long-Term Evolution (LTE) deployment scenarios, varying demand of mobile services, availability of infrastructure for mobile communication, and the prevailing subscriber trends. MarketsandMarkets expects the North American region to hold the largest portion of the mobile and wireless backhaul market, because of high demand for mobile services and smart devices, and number of operational LTE and small-cell deployments. The European region is done with most of the LTE trials and is enriched with various technological advancements, contributing a large portion of revenues in the mobile and wireless backhaul space. In spite of small contribution in revenues, the Latin American region is expected to foresee high growth in this market along with Asia Pacific (APAC). MarketsandMarkets expects the mobile and wireless backhaul market to grow from $13.11 billion in 2013 to $23.3 billion by 2018, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 12.2%.
