Report Details
The mobile market is at a turning point. In 2013, smartphones outsold feature phones for the first time, while tablets are expected to outsell PCs by 2015. With the increasing mobility advantage offered by these devices, consumers have come to expect a high standard of network connectivity at all times. More than ever before, social media, internet browsing, video streaming, and applications dominate mobile phone usage. With the proliferation of these devices, global data traffic has increased from 820 petabytes/month in 2012 to 1.5 exabytes/month in 2013.

Consequently, operators are finding themselves in a capacity crunch, vying to increase network capacity and mobile broadband speeds without incurring crippling capital and operational expenditures.

Heterogeneous networks are the leading solution to emerge: using small cells to fill gaps left in the network by macrocells, as well as increase capacity in high-traffic areas. Along with small costs, the ease of deploying and maintaining small cells has made them an invaluable asset to operators in the LTE era.

Visiongain expects 1.7 million new small cell deployments globally in 2014.

Deployments of femtocells, picocells, and microcells will explode over the next five years, in residential, enterprise, and public access spheres. Driven by rapidly multiplying mobile broadband demand, the development of multimode devices, and a worldwide shift to LTE, the small cells market promises to be a lucrative sector for players throughout the ecosystem.

As the developed markets begin to move towards comprehensive LTE coverage, small cells will become an integral part of network architecture. The industry is witnessing a tremendous shift in network strategy and planning, one that revolves around a more intricate nexus of compact, high-performance elements.

The small cells market will experience significant growth through the forecast period, simultaneously driving innovation in fibre-optic and multi-gigabit millimetre wave backhaul, IP-based core networks, heterogeneous and self-organising networks. These are the optimal and inevitable solutions to industry-wide questions on mobile network capacity.
