Report Details

Following the widespread growth of smartphones and other portable connected devices in recent years, there has been a huge growth of mobile data consumption. One of the key issues for MNO's has been to address this increasing data traffic demand with sufficient capacity at high speeds. Due to limited spectrum availability and increasing rates of data consumption, the user experience is often somewhat sacrificed.

One of the solutions to the rising wireless broadband capacity crunch is through deploying heterogeneous networks (Hetnets) comprising of macro cells and a range of small cell solutions namely microcells, picocells, carrier Wi-Fi and femtocells.

Small cells are being widely deployed by mobile operators the world over. 2G/3G small cells have already been used widely by operators for quite some time now, for the purposes of boosting network capacity in urban areas, provide wider coverage in rural areas, and furthermore to extend services into large public areas such as train stations, airports and shopping malls. More recently, with the widespread rollout of 4G LTE technologies there has been a renewed vigour in the deployment of 4G small cells in the form of public space femto cells and mini eNode base stations, in order to keep up with the increasing capacity and backhaul requirements for ubiquitous access to mobile broadband at 4G speeds.

Visiongain predicts growth in the small cells market, particularly in the 4G small cell types. The market is poised for vendors and solution providers as there is a huge uptake both from the consumer market, enterprise sector and the mobile operators, driven by limited spectrum and capacity constraints. The overall small cells market is growing and will continue to do so over the forecast period 2013-2018. As a consequence, visiongain has determined that the value of the global small cells market in 2013 will reach a value of $640.8 million.
