FemtoCell Market in APAC: Market Analysis and Forecast 2015-2019

About femtocell

A femtocell is very small and lightweight base station designed to increase the signal strength and coverage area of mobile networks in the indoor as well as the outdoor environment. It offers faster data connections and in-building voice and data services, fewer dropped calls, and improved mobile voice quality to enterprise as well as residential consumers. The femtocell technology can be easily deployed on communication standards. Ease of deployment, low-power consumption, IP backhaul, and self-optimisation are the major features offered by femtocell. Therefore, many MNOs are deploying femtocell to increase their service revenue and market share and reduce network cost and churn.

Technavio's analysts forecast the femtocell market in APAC to grow at a CAGR of 20.11% over the period 2015-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – FemtoCell Market in the APAC 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the FemtoCell Market in the APAC: Airvana, Alcatel, Cisco and Samsung
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Alpha Networks, Cellcomm, China Unicom, China Mobile, China Telecom, D-Link, Fujitsu, Huawei, Intel, Juni Global, ip.access, SingTel, NEC, Nokia, Docomo, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments and ZTE
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The demand for LTE-based femtocells is driven by increased deployment of LTE networks in APAC. China Mobile's massive rollout of TD-LTE in 2014 is expected to propel the market greatly during the forecast period. LTE provides faster transmission of voice and data signals and decreases network traffic. Network operators focus more on launching LTE-based femtocells as they provide more ARPU compared to 3G and W-CDMA femtocells.”
According to the report, currently, with the increase in penetration of smart devices there is a tremendous increase in data traffic worldwide. In 2014, mobile data traffic grew by 69% because of increased usage of mobile broadband among consumers. In emerging markets such as India, China, the Philippines, Indonesia, and South Korea, consumers spend a lot of time on the Internet and using other value-added services on their smartphones. A smartphone generates 48 times more mobile data traffic than a basic-feature cell phone. In addition, the deployment of 3G and 4G networks is expected to increase the mobile data rate rapidly. Mobile operators are widely adopting femtocells to manage data traffic. We expect that the demand for femtocells will increase rapidly during the forecast period.
Further, the report states that the femtocell technology is facing a major challenge of interference with macrocell networks.
