International Microcell BTS Market - Forecasts to 2018

DUBLIN, IRELAND--(Marketwired - July 3, 2014) - Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of EJL Wireless Research's new report "Global Microcell BTS Market Analysis & Forecast, 2013-2018, 3rd Edition" to their offering.

Microcell shipments remain small, still waiting for volume deployments.

The global microcell base transmitting station (mBTS) market will reach USD $262 million in revenues by 2018, according to this latest report 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
