London, UK (December 15, 2015)—A cumulative $6.5 billion will be spent worldwide on outdoor small cell backhaul equipment between 2015 and 2019, reports IHS (NYSE: IHS) in its latest IHS Infonetics Small Cell Mobile Backhaul Equipment report.
The report tracks equipment used for transporting traffic from outdoor small cell sites, such as those attached to light poles, utility poles, and the sides and tops of buildings.
“As outdoor small cell deployments scale up, we look for the small cell backhaul equipment market to kick into higher gear in 2017, when it will reach over $1.2 billion. This year we started to see the early ramp-up beginning, while trials are still ongoing for many operators,” said Richard Webb, research director for mobile backhaul and small cells at IHS.
SMALL CELL MOBILE BACKHAUL MARKET HIGHLIGHTS
- Much of the activity in the small cell market continues to be around indoor small cells, as in-building spaces in public venues often have problematic macro-based mobile network coverage
- In 2015, the global small cell mobile backhaul equipment market is forecast to grow 143 percent from the previous year
- Around 75,000 outdoor small cell backhaul connections are projected to be deployed in 2015, rising to 960,000 in 2019
- Point-to-point (P2P) microwave is anticipated to account for just under a third of total small cell backhaul equipment revenue in 2015, the highest of any technology
