Comprehensive market size and forecast projections for the global and regional markets for heterogeneous network equipment: macro cells, small cells, Wi-Fi offload gear and backhaul.

Carriers are struggling to cope with the explosion of data traffic on their networks, and this has resulted in over 100 commercial LTE network deployments worldwide, with nearly 350 carriers committed to the 4G technology.

However, the additional deployment of LTE and legacy 2G/3G RAN macro cell sites and procuring additional frequency spectrum resources will not be sufficient to provide the capacity for the predicted growth in traffic. Consequently, together with their on-going transition to LTE, carriers have begun to deploy Heterogeneous Networks (‘HetNets’) to address these ever increasing capacity demands.

HetNets are a gradual evolution of cellular topology, not a distinct network unto itself. Driven by this evolution, ARCchart forecasts annual unit shipments of 1.4 million macro cells, 5 million small cells and 11.5 million Wi-Fi access points by 2017, representing a global market value of $42 billion.

Forecasts provided for:
- Traditional Macro Cell Infrastructure
- Small Cell Infrastructure
- Carrier Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Offload
- Mobile Backhaul
