Reading time ( words)

LTE.jpgIn its latest IHS Infonetics Mobile Infrastructure Equipment report, IHS forecasts global LTE mobile infrastructure revenue to peak at $23.3 billion in 2015 and then start to decline as a result of diminishing rollouts.

“As we anticipated, we’re reaching the peak of LTE rollouts, and LTE is now set to perform at $6 billion a quarter for some time as operators complete their major remaining rollouts,” said Stéphane Téral, research director for mobile infrastructure and carrier economics at IHS.

Mobile Infrastructure Market Highlights

  • LTE revenue totaled $6 billion worldwide in the first quarter of 2015 (1Q15), a 1 percent sequential decline 
  • LTE rollouts were not strong enough in 1Q15 to fully offset the abyssal year-over-year decline of 2G/3G spending, resulting in an 8 percent sequential decline for the global 2G/3G/4G mobile infrastructure market, which came to $11 billion
  • On a year-over-year basis, the 2G/3G/4G mobile infrastructure market was up 4 percent in 1Q15, driven by unabated TDD LTE activity in China
