Infonetics: China bounces back in distributed antenna system (DAS) market, U.S. sees double-digit growth

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - October 28, 2014) - Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its latest DAS Equipment report, which tracks and forecasts distributed antenna system (DAS) equipment units and revenue by geographic region and category (in-building, outdoor, LTE, multi-standard).

ANALYST NOTE
"In the distributed antenna system market, it's a U.S. versus China game. Last year, China was marked by an abyssal slowdown in DAS spending as it was preparing for massive LTE deployments, but the first half of 2014 saw a slight pickup that suggests the shift from LTE coverage buildout to coverage and capacity enhancement is starting," says Stéphane Téral, principal analyst for mobile infrastructure and carrier economics at Infonetics Research.

Continues Téral: "The U.S., on the other hand, has reached its DAS spending peak for LTE coverage and capacity enhancement, posting double-digit year-over-year growth during the first half of 2014 and signaling an upcoming slowdown."

DAS EQUIPMENT MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  • The global distributed antenna system (DAS) market totaled $1.1 billion in the first half of 2014 (1H14), growing 11% over the same period a year ago (1H13)
  • In North America, DAS revenue grew 19% year-over-year in 1H14
  • Fundamental DAS drivers remain unchanged and include coverage, capacity, spectrum efficiency, interference mitigation, data support, scalability, and adaptability
