Mobile Backhaul market revenues are expected to exceed $8 billion by 2015, according to a report from Dell'Oro Group. The report indicates that the overall market will grow more than 40 percent in the next 5 years, while revenues for the Routers and Switches segment will more than double over the same period.
"We have been tracking the telecommunications equipment market for more than 16 years, and are pleased today to announce that we have leveraged this knowledge to publish a detailed report on the Mobile Backhaul market," said Margaret Thum, Chief Operating Officer at Dell'Oro Group.
"Our approach in forecasting this market is the same thorough, rigorous, and consistent market research process that has established Dell'Oro Group as a leader in market research. It would have been easier if we just estimated a percentage of service provider CAPEX that would be spent on mobile backhaul. Instead, our approach in preparing this report included a bottoms up analysis of multiple factors and markets, including mobility infrastructure, carrier Ethernet switches, service provider edge routers, microwave transmission, and optical transport equipment, to name just a few," added Thum.
"The huge growth in bandwidth requirements, coupled with the transition to 4G IP-based cellular radio technologies will drive the Mobile Backhaul market over the next 5 years," said Loren Shalinsky, Senior Analyst at Dell'Oro Group. "The largest increase in mobile backhaul equipment revenues over the next 5 years will likely come from the Asia Pacific and EMEA regions, as these areas grow their cellular subscriber base as well as prepare for next generation cellular network technologies like HSPA+ and LTE," added Shalinsky.
