Infonetics Research: Comeback seen in telecom/datacom equipment and software market, steady growth ahead

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 26, 2011) - Market research firm Infonetics Research today released excerpts from its 2011 Telecom and Datacom Network Equipment and Software report, which provides a big picture of the health of the overall market by aggregating data from the majority of telecom and datacom networking products.


"Recovery from the recession continues slowly and unevenly, but telecom and datacom equipment revenues continue to rise and will do so through 2015 at an overall compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.5%. Service provider mobile and wireless infrastructure and enterprise and data center networks make up the largest portions of revenue, and growth through 2015 is fueled by a wide variety or product segments, from communications and security in the enterprise, to service provider IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystems), routing, switching, and Ethernet. We are encouraged to see growth in all but two of the markets we track within this industry," notes Jeff Wilson, principal analyst at Infonetics Research.


  • Worldwide telecom and datacom equipment and software revenue totaled $160.1 billion in 2010, up 6% from 2009
  • Infonetics forecasts the overall telecom/datacom equipment and software market to grow to $209.1 billion by 2015
  • In 2010, the spending split was about 70% vs. 30% for service provider vs. enterprise equipment and software; by 2015, enterprise spending is expected to grow to 34% of the total while carrier spending drops to 66%
  • Cisco continues its commanding lead in the enterprise segment of the worldwide total telecom and datacom network equipment market, and is now 5th in the service provider segment
  • Asia Pacific will remain the hottest spending region, driven by unabated 3G upgrades and LTE (Long Term Evolution) preparation through 2015 in China, 3G and LTE rollouts in India, and massive LTE deployments in Australia, Japan, and South Korea
