DUBLIN, Nov. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Small Cell Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.

Small cells are defined as low-powered radio access nodes that operate in licensed bands. They are mostly used in indoor and densely populated areas for providing better wireless network coverage. The coverage area of small cells varies from 32 feet to more than 3,280 feet, which is comparatively less than that of mobile macrocells. The types of small cells that are commonly used by telecom operators globally are femtocells, picocells, microcells, and metrocells.

The analysts forecast the Global Small Cell market to grow at a CAGR of 22.22 percent over the period 2013-2018.

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the Global Small Cell market for the period 2014-2018. The Global Small Cell market can be segmented based on end-user, technology, and product. The major end-users are individual consumers, enterprises, and public areas. In terms of technology, the market is segmented into 2G, 3G, and Long-term Evolution (LTE).

The report, the Global Small Cell Market 2014-2018, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the Americas, and the APAC and EMEA regions; it also covers the Global Small Cell market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years.
