ZTE moves up to number three globally in shipments as TDD LTE shipments grow
Multi-RAT LTE/LTE-A eNodeBs Account for 74% of Total Shipments
The global base transmitting station (BTS) market grew by 32% in units in 2014, according to this latest report titled "Global Base Station Market Analysis and Forecast, 11th Edition, 2015-2019." "Record volume was driven in part by China Mobile's TDD LTE network deployments as well a network migrations from LTE 3GPP Rel. 9 to LTEAdvanced (LTE-A) 3GPP Rel. 10 and beyond upgrades. ZTE was able to leverage its influence in China to move up to third in our market share rankings for 2014. We do note that on a pro forma basis that the future Nokia+Alcatel-Lucent combination would have been third overall, dropping ZTE down to number four," says founder and President, Earl Lum. The report provides a unique perspective on the global shipments and demand for base station equipment covering all air interface standards and frequencies and major OEMs including Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, Huawei Technologies, Nokia Networks, Samsung Electronics, and ZTE. The report also analyzes shipment of remote radio units (RRU).
Some key and notable facts from the analysis include:
The author was correct in predicting growth in overall BTS shipments for 2014 with a forecast variance of 2%
The author was correct in predicting overall GSM BTS shipments for 2014 with a forecast variance of 1%
The author was correct in predicting overall LTE eNodeB shipments for 2014 with a forecast variance of 8%
These data points continue to support a leadership position in forecasting capability within the wireless infrastructure market and the granularity in quantitative details the company can provide to its global client base. "LTE eNodeB shipments increased significantly, up 86% in 2014, as demand for TDD and FDD LTE in China drove shipment volumes. We estimate that TDD LTE eNodeBs remained at 28% of overall LTE eNodeB shipments in 2014. The grafting probe in China is having a significant impact on shipments in 2015. While we are hopeful that this investigation will conclude by the end of 2015, it is difficult to say with any certainty as to when the market will recover. Therefore, we have slashed our forecast for 2015 and pushed out shipments into 2016 with the view that demand will rebound at that point," says Lum.
Some key predictions for 2015 are:
- Global BTS shipments will be down 30%
- Global eNodeB FDD LTE shipments are expected to decline 28%
- Global eNodeB TDD LTE shipments are expected to decline 59%
- Global NodeB W-CDMA/HSPA+ shipments are expected to increase by 3%
The top suppliers for overall base station shipments as well as by air interface standards for 2014 were:
- Overall #1 BTS Supplier: Huawei Technologies
- Overall #1 GSM BTS Supplier: Huawei Technologies
- Overall #1 W-CDMA/HSPA+ NodeB Supplier: Ericsson
- Overall #1 CDMA BTS Supplier: Huawei Technologies
- Overall #1 LTE eNodeB Supplier: Huawei Technologies
