Global Wi-Fi Enabled LTE Small Cell Gateways Market to Reach 19.1 Million Units by 2026


Wi-Fi enabled LTE small cell gateway refers to a network element that features an LTE interface towards the carrier network and a Wi-Fi interface towards the end user devices. Small cells are witnessing tremendous growth in investments from service providers, and form an alternative to Wi-Fi as an offloading option. Small cell networks include several miniaturized base stations which can be placed inside buildings or outside for enhancing network capacity and coverage. Although small cells can eliminate the need of additional WLAN access points, there is a growing trend to view small cells and Wi-Fi as complementary technologies. The growth of private LTE, edge computing, and 5G networks will provide growth opportunities for small cells. The adoption of CBRS, Wi-Fi connectivity, and LAA in small cells will also grow as a means to achieve additional capacity at low costs.

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for Wi-Fi Enabled LTE Small Cell Gateways estimated at 6.6 Million Units in the year 2020, is projected to reach a revised size of 19.1 Million Units by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 18% over the analysis period.

The U.S. Market is Estimated at 2.7 Million Units in 2021, While China is Forecast to Reach 2.6 Million Units by 2026


The Wi-Fi Enabled LTE Small Cell Gateways market in the U.S. is estimated at 2.7 Million Units in the year 2021. The country currently accounts for a 31.8% share in the global market. China, the world`s second largest economy, is forecast to reach an estimated market size of 2.6 Million Units in the year 2026 trailing a CAGR of 27.9% through the analysis period.
