Global Femtocell Market 2015-2019

About femtocell

A femtocell is a small and lightweight cellular base station designed to increase the signal strength and coverage area of mobile networks, indoors and outdoors. It offers prompt data connections, in-building voice and data services, fewer dropped calls, and improved mobile voice quality to enterprises and residential consumers. The femtocell technology can be easily deployed because of its low-power consumption, IP backhaul, and self-optimization capabilities. A large number of MNOs are using femtocells to reduce network costs and increase their market share and revenue. One feature of femtocells is that subscribers do not need any dedicated user equipment to use them.

Technavio's analysts forecast the global femtocell market to grow at a CAGR of 17.70% over the period 2015-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global FemtoCell market 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global FemtoCell market: Airvana, Alcatel-Lucent (Nokia Networks), Cisco and Samsung

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Alpha Networks, Cellcomm, China Mobile, China Telecom, China Unicom, D-Link, Fujitsu, Huawei, Intel, ip.access, Juni Global, NEC, Nokia Solutions and Networks, NTT Docomo, Qualcomm, SingTel Optus, 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. In developed regions such as North America and Western Europe, with the early deployment of LTE, the adoption LTE femtocells is already very high. Femtocells provide faster transmission of voice and data signals and decrease network traffic.”

According to the report, the increased demand for LTE femtocells and increased use of VoWi-Fi and VoLTE will drive the market during the forecast period. Network operators focus more on launching LTE-based femtocells as they provide more ARPU compared to 3G and W-CDMA femtocells. An enterprise femtocell can easily handle 16 concurrent calls and transmit approximately 100 mW RF power level that can be used among 300-400 people.

Further, the report states that advances in technology pose a major threat to the industry. Telecommunication operators are rapidly adopting advanced technologies, such as LTE and WiMax, to provide data and voice services at high speed and low cost. This will effect 2G and 3G femtocell providers as it will reduce adoption of 2G and 3G equipment which will eventually need to be replaced with 4G equipment.
