Infonetics: Momentum building in millimeter wave market, ignited by outdoor small cells

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - October 17, 2014) - Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its latest Millimeter Wave Equipment report, which tracks licensed and unlicensed millimeter wave equipment by market application (access, backhaul, and transport).

ANALYST NOTE
"Although the millimeter wave market is still modest in scale at this point, the enhanced capacity capabilities delivered by this technology will be invaluable as a backhaul aggregation solution for small cell deployments as they scale up," says Richard Webb, directing analyst for mobile backhaul and small cells at Infonetics Research.

Webb continues: "We expect millimeter wave to play a significant role in outdoor small cell backhaul, which will become the primary long-term market driver."

MILLIMETER WAVE EQUIPMENT MARKET HIGHLIGHTS

  • Infonetics projects the overall millimeter wave equipment market to grow to $755 million by 2018
  • The outdoor small cell backhaul segment of the millimeter wave equipment market is forecast by Infonetics to outpace all other segments of the market, growing at a 101% CAGR from 2013 to 2018
  • Licensed E-band 70-90GHz equipment accounted for 93% of millimeter wave sales in the first half of 2014 (1H14)
  • 90% of millimeter wave equipment revenue in 1H14 came from mobile backhaul applications, up from 85% in the second half of 2013 (2H13)
  • Currently, the top 3 players in millimeter wave gear are E-Band Communications, NEC, and Siklu (in alphabetical order), though Infonetics expects some consolidation to take place over the next 2 years as the market grows and more of the large mainstream microwave vendors move in from the wings
