Small Cell Networks Market by Small Cell Types (Femtocell, Picocell, Microcell, and Metrocell), by Operating Environments (Indoor, and Outdoor), by Services, by End Users, by Verticals, and by Region - Global Forecast to 2020
The increase in the numbers of mobile subscribers in developing regions has created bottle-necks in the existing telecom infrastructure resulting in poor quality of spectrum available in these areas. To overcome this issue, most of the telecom vendors are deploying small cells which enable them to enhance their existing spectrum to future technologies such as 3G/4G/LTE; thereby resulting in heavy investment by these players in the small cell networks market.
Advanced communication technologies such as 3G/4G/LTE are flexible in nature and can be deployed in any bandwidth. They have resulted in easy acceptance of such advanced technologies in the mobile markets of emerging regions such as India, China, Africa, and Brazil. This has increased the demand for small cells deployments to provide highly efficient networks to access digital data within the emerging regions. The primary drivers for the small cell networks market includes enhancing the mobile data traffic, increasing demand for high efficient spectrum, and focusing on low capital and operating expenditures. The small cell networks market is expected to witness a high growth rate in the developing countries since major telecom operators have implemented low powered radio access wireless-based solutions to enhance the spectrum quality, thereby reducing the overall operational cost. However, the poor backhaul connectivity in remote areas of emerging regions is restraining the growth of market.
