The telecommunications infrastructure market has seen rapid growth over the last ten years, driven by major factors including rising number of mobile subscribers, 3G, Long Term Evolution (LTE-4G) deployment and increasing government support towards strengthening telecom infrastructure, and a diversification of assets by telecommunications companies looking to focus on their core business. Additionally, growing environmental concerns is further driving the shift towards off-grid telecom towers.

Telecom towers are either owned by individual telecom service providers, or shared among multiple service providers in order to save capital and operational costs. However, M&A activity in recent years has seen the ownership structure of towers changing dramatically and also drawn a lot of focus on the sector from non-telecoms companies as traditional MNOs offload tower assets to towerco’s in order to focus on their core activity. In order to provide uninterrupted telecom services, telecom towers have to be connected with a continuous power supply source.

This report analyses and presents an overview of the global Telecom Towers market including the Asia-Pacific region, The Middle East, Africa, Latin America, North America.
