The global macrocell mobile infrastructure market grew 3% year-on-year in the fourth quarter of 2015 to 13 billion US dollars, fuelled by LTE rollouts in China and India, according to IHS Technology. But the LTE market will begin to decline this year, as Chinese and European telcos complete their LTE deployments, the research firm said.
Ericsson led the global wireless infrastructure market for 2G, 3G and 4G gear in 2015, according to IHS, followed by Huawei, Nokia Networks, ZTE and Alcatel-Lucent. The worldwide macrocell infrastructure market was worth 48 billion dollars last year, the research firm added. source: FierceWireless article
