An Industry on the Rise

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA--(Marketwire - April 16, 2010) - www.rothmanresearch.com -- Recent years have seen the communication equipment industry go through a swift product development revolution as competition grew to impressive levels. In 2008, the communication equipment market expanded by 8.3% worldwide attaining a value of $51.5 billion, and it is anticipated to continue its growth to reach over $71 billion by 2013. With emerging economies intensifying their presence in the world, companies in this industry have found new markets to balance the impact of the recession. Emerging markets like India and China take a large portion of the communication equipment market pie. "WIMAX is now the new battleground, with Clearwire and Sprint leading the industry in the U.S. and companies like Motorola Inc. (NYSE: MOT) are probing the emerging markets in Asia," commented Mathew Collier of www.rothmanresearch.com

"However, many players in this sphere are also considering the next level which is LTE equipment. In recent months, some of the industry key players like Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU) have started scaling back on WIMAX focusing more on LTE development," added Mathew Collier of www.rothmanresearch.com. "I believe that LTE technology is still 2 to 3 years away which gives WIMAX ample time to consolidate its market base. Even if we have seen a deceleration in WIMAX growth throughout 2009 due to the economic downturn, emerging markets are slowly compensating the losses incurred from business users in the past months."

The WIMAX equipment market is anticipated to grow beyond $9.4 billion by 2015 and we are already hearing talks of the new WIMAX 2 launch later in 2010.
