TD-LTE RAN Revenues Grow More Than Five-Fold in Fourth Quarter 2013

Published on:

The TD LTE RAN market grew rapidly in the fourth quarter 2013 offsetting declining RAN technologies (GSM WCDMA CDMA) according to Dell'Oro Group.

"The initial large scale TD-LTE rollouts in China were the largest contributor to both quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year growth in the overall RAN market," said Stefan Pongratz, RAN and Small Cell analyst with Dell'Oro Group. "We estimate TD-LTE RAN revenues exceeded $1 Billion accounting for more than one third of total FDD/TDD LTE revenues during the fourth quarter 2013," continued Pongratz.

ZTE recorded the largest quarter-over-quarter LTE revenue share gains.

Meanwhile, Ericsson, Huawei, NSN, and Alcatel-Lucent accounted for 38 percent, 24 percent, 17 percent, and 10 percent of combined WCDMA/LTE RAN revenues in 2013 respectively.

Dell'Oro predicts that the total RAN market is expected to grow at a low single-digit rate for a second consecutive year in 2014, as growth in China offsets declining RAN revenues in North America.
