Global GSM Antenna Market 2017-2021
About GSM Antenna
Antennas are specialized transducers that convert RF wave fields into alternating current (AC) or vice-versa. There are two basic types of antennas, a receiving antenna, which intercepts RF energy and delivers AC to electronic equipment, and the transmitting antenna, which absorbs AC from electronic equipment and generates an RF field. Similarly, like any wireless communication system, mobile communication is also dependent on GSM antennas. GSM services are in constant need of custom antenna designers to help them keep up with customer demand and to introduce new innovations and functions to the marketplace.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global GSM antenna market to grow at a CAGR of 4.6% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global GSM antenna market for 2017-2021. The report presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global GSM Antenna Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global GSM antenna market: Comba Telecom, KATHREIN-Werke, and Laird.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Advanced RF Technologies (ADRF), Communication Components, Cobham Wireless, CommScope, Bird Technologies, Ericsson, Huawei Technologies, and ZTE.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is adoption of massive MIMO. MIMO involves multiple technologies. It is essentially a wireless network that allows the transmitting and receiving of more than one data signal simultaneously over the same radio channel. While standard MIMO networks tend to use two or four antennas, massive MIMO, on the other hand, is a system with an exceptionally high number of antennas.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing demand for network capacity to access connected services. There is a continuous growth in demand for faster mobile broadband communication to experience seamless integrity of connected devices. The internet is an important access channel to support and enable communications over large-scale loT devices. The advent of high-speed 4G LTE wireless networks has helped support high-bandwidth M2M applications. The roll out of 4G LTE-machines (LTE-M) and LTE-unlicensed (LTE-U) and 5G networks is expected to facilitate faster transmission and higher volumes of data in the smart ecosystem.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is saturation of cell sites in developed countries. Developed countries such as the US, Germany, and the UK have had GSM connections for more than 20 years. Over this period of time, they have installed a large number of GSM antennas across their entire geography to cater to the data and calling requirements of their respective citizens. These countries generate the maximum revenue for GSM antenna vendors, because of their large user base and high per capita incomes. However, after 2008, these countries have shown a slowdown in the growth of the GSM antenna market. This is because all the cell sites across these regions have been covered by current GSM networks and do not require additional cell sites for coverage.
