IHS: LTE Infrastructure Market Up 9% YoY

The worldwide mobile infrastructure market totaled $11.3 billion in the third quarter of 2015 (3Q15), up 1 percent from a year ago, driven by 3G W-CDMA capacity projects in EMEA and the end of LTE rollouts in China, according to a new report from IHS.


Some highlights:

  • Global LTE revenue is up 9 percent year-over-year, totaling $6.1 billion.
  • On a quarter-over-quarter basis, the overall mobile infrastructure market is down 1 percent, mainly dragged by Brazil, China, Japan, the Middle East and Russia, while LTE revenue was flat from the previous quarter.
  • Of the BRIC nations, India is the bright spot in the mobile infrastructure space, up every quarter since the beginning of 2015
  • North America is stable quarter-over-quarter, China is reaching the end of its massive LTE rollouts, LTE rollouts in Western and Central Europe are close to completion, and in the Middle East 3G upgrades are completed
  • IHS projects the global 2G/3G/4G mobile infrastructure market to slowly decline to $28.5 billion by 2019, a 5-year (2014–2019) CAGR of -9.5 percent
  • 5G will kick off the next mobile infrastructure investment cycle, which is expected to start in 2018
