Key Questions Answered:

  • What is the current market size (Subscribers, Revenue) of LTE market?
  • How the LTE market will progress across different regions in the coming years?
  • Which regions will exhibit maximum growth in LTE subscribers and revenue?
  • What are the key investment areas to maximise the RoI on an LTE network?
  • What should be your ideal deployment path for LTE?
  • What are the effective techniques of mobile data offloading?
  • What should be your ideal approach to face spectrum shortage?
  • How can mobile operators manage their LTE backhaul costs?
  • How to develop an effective PCRF to monetise LTE services?
  • What are the various LTE pricing models being adopted by operators worldwide?
  • What are the major challenges and opportunities in Wholesale LTE business model?
  • What should be the ideal approach for late entrants into the LTE market?

Key Findings:

  • North America, Western Europe and Asia Pacific will account for 83% of the global LTE service revenue by 2018.
  • USA, South Korea and Japan have established themselves as the early leaders in LTE. However, the developing and underdeveloped markets in Asia and Africa hold huge business potential for LTE.
  • Operators across the globe are projected to spend US$180 billion in LTE CAPEX by 2018.
  • 4G small cells will surpass 3G small cells in next four years. The overall small cell backhaul expenditure will be worth US$28.7 billion by 2018.
  • The total LTE-Advanced subscriber base will account for more than 42% of the global LTE subscriber base by 2018.
  • The global subscriber base on LTE-Advanced networks is projected to reach 461 million by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 158% during 2013 and 2018.
  • Earlier LTE operators were focusing primarily on USB dongle based data services due to lack of (affordable) LTE smartphones and tablets. However, the increasing penetration of LTE devices is likely to create new business opportunities such as LTE broadcast and online gaming.
  • Many operators were offering unlimited data plans to attract customers from 2G and 3G networks to LTE. However, they very soon realised that their current available spectrum would not be able to meet such demand in the long run. Consequently, most of the LTE operators across the globe started putting data caps and finished unlimited data plans.
  • Being an ALL-IP network, LTE brings considerable security challenges for operators, end users, device manufacturers and application providers. The growing use of smaller cell sites (picocells and femtocells) will further increase security concerns as these small cell sites tend to be located in less physically secure locations and there will be more network elements to manage.
