Ericsson Recaptures Global #1 Ranking as well as Top LTE Supplier

The global base transmitting station (BTS) transceiver (TRx) market grew by 32.3% in units in 2010, according to the latest report from EJL Wireless Research titled “Global BTS Transceiver Market Analysis and Forecast, 7hEdition, 2010-2015.” “Despite the continued economic uncertainty in the global financial market and the impact of the Indian Telecom embargo, the industry again set a new record for TRx unit shipments in 2010,” says founder and President, Earl Lum. The report provides a unique perspective on the global shipments and demand for base station equipment covering all air interface standards and frequencies (except WiMAX) and major OEMs including Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Huawei Technologies, Motorola, Nokia Siemens Networks, and ZTE.

“Last year was definitely the beginning of volume LTE shipments as demand was well ahead of our forecast. The most surprising data point was the increase of GSM shipments by 8% as the industry begins to migrate from single carrier GSM technology to multi-carrier GSM,” says Lum. W-CDMA/HSPA shipments nearly doubled in volume as demand picked up globally due to HSPA+ and DC-HSPA+ deployments. We forecast that LTE shipments will become the largest segment by 2012 due to the accelerated deployments of both FDD-LTE and TDD-LTE.

The top suppliers by overall base station transceiver shipments as well as by air interface standards for 2010 were:

    Overall #1 TRx Supplier: Ericsson

    Overall #1 GSM TRx Supplier: Nokia Siemens Networks

    Overall #1 W-CDMA TRx Supplier: Huawei Technologies

    Overall #1 CDMA TRx Supplier: ZTE

    Overall #1 TD-SCDMA TRx Supplier: ZTE

    Overall #1 LTE TRx Supplier: Ericsson
