Microcell shipments remain small, still waiting for volume deployments.



The mBTS market remains a waiting game for the industry.

The global microcell base transmitting station (mBTS) market will reach USD $262 million in revenues by 2018, according to the latest report from EJL Wireless Research titled “Global Microcell Base Station Market Analysis and Forecast, 3rd Edition, 2014-2018.” “Low volume shipments continued in 2014 however push outs and delays in North America and Europe have dampened any near term hopes of significant volumes to be deployed by mobile operators, While the wireless industry continues to cite ever increasing mobile broadband data traffic growth, initial focus for mobile operators will remain on coverage strategies and not for capacity expansion within macrocells. Due to these trends, we have significantly downgraded our views, forecasts, and revenue opportunities on the outdoor microcell market. It remains a waiting game for the industry” says founder and President, Earl Lum.

Some key predictions from EJL Wireless Research LLC are:
    Global Microcell BTS revenues of USD $262 million by 2018
    Insignificant Outdoor Carrier-Grade 802.11ac WiFi deployments by mobile operators
    Asia Pacific and North America will drive volumes through 2018
    China will drive demand from 2014 through 2016
