Research and Markets: The 2G, 3G & 4G Wireless Network Infrastructure Market: 2012 - 2017 - Discover how the Market is Evolving and the Trends Influencing its Growth

Nov 07, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "The 2G, 3G & 4G Wireless Network Infrastructure Market: 2012 - 2017" report to their offering.

The wireless network infrastructure market is currently in a phase of transition as mobile network operators seek to address increasing mobile traffic demands amidst global economic uncertainties. This paradigm shift is bringing new challenges and opportunities to infrastructure vendors.

In 2011, global 2G , 3G and 4G wireless infrastructure revenues stood at $45.9 billion. Signals and Systems Telecom estimates that these revenues will increase 8 percent year on year (YOY) reaching $49.7 billion by end of 2012, primarily driven by LTE investments. However, between 2012 and 2017, the market is expected to shrink to $48.6 billion.

Although, the new wave of 4G macrocell Radio Access Network (RAN) and core network investments will not be able to compensate the overall declines in 2G and 3G equipment sales, operators are expected to significantly increase their spending in the evolving small cell and carrier WiFi equipment market. Small cell and WiFi offload equipment will represent a market worth $5.4 billion in 2017. Consequently the small cell and WiFi offload market segment is attracting considerable attention from both established vendors as well as startups which solely focus on the small cell market.

This report provides an in-depth assessment of the 2G, 3G and 4G wireless network infrastructure market, and also explores the small cell and WiFi offload, and the mobile backhaul markets. Besides analyzing the key market drivers, challenges, regional CAPEX commitments and vendor strategies, the report also presents revenue and unit shipment forecasts for the wireless network infrastructure, small cell and WiFi offload, and the mobile backhaul markets from 2012 to 2017 at a regional as well as a global scale. Historical figures and vendor shares are also provided for 2010 and 2011.
