Market research firm Infonetics
Research released excerpts from its latest Residential
and Enterprise Femtocell Equipment report, which tracks
femtocells by market segment, technology, and form factor.
“Overall, the femtocell and enterprise small cell equipment market has
seen robust unit and revenue growth over the previous half-year period,
and we remain optimistic that these small cell segments have sufficient
market drivers and support among operators to sustain continuous
year-over-year unit and revenue growth through 2018,” notes Richard
Webb, directing analyst for mobile backhaul and small cells at Infonetics
“4G macro network deployments are underway in many places, and operators
are starting to launch 4G-based femtocells to augment mobile broadband
services,” adds Webb.
“Boosted by enterprise small cell adoption kicking in to help mobile
operators support enterprise-specific voice and data offerings, we
believe 4G femtocell and enterprise small cell revenue will climb to
$2.3 billion in 2018, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 77 percent
from 2013 to 2018.”
FEMTOCELL MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
Worldwide femtocell and enterprise small cell equipment revenue
reached $144 million in 1Q14, up 6% from 4Q13
LTE femtocells, the highest ARPU
products in the market, are a driving force behind revenue growth,
though W-CDMA femtocells still make up the dominant proportion of unit
The residential segment led with 59% of femtocell revenue in 1Q14,
ahead of the enterprise small cell segment
These are distinct markets in their own right, and Infonetics
expects to see increasing specialization from vendors and
Integrated femtocells grew to 8% of total units in 1Q14 and are
anticipated to account for about a third of unit shipments by 2018,
predominantly into the residential segment
Femtocell/enterprise small cell equipment revenue market share leaders
in 1Q14 are, in alphabetical order, Airvana, Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco,
