Global BTS Transceiver Market Analysis and Forecast, 2014-2018, February 2014
The global base station transceiver (TRx) market in 2013 achieved incredible all time records in shipments far surpassing our expectations. Total unit shipments across all air interfaces and frequency bands were 16.7 million for 2013, up 87% year over year. The launch of LTE networks in China was the primary factor for the incredible growth in the market.
How well did we do in our forecast from a year ago? Our goal is to be within +/-10% of our forecasts.
We continue to believe that many research reports attempt to quantify the overall wireless infrastructure base station equipment market in terms of monetary value. Analyzing the total economic impact of the global base station transceiver market is important but we continue to base the thesis of this report on the estimated unit shipments by each OEM. We believe that this approach continues to lead the market
place in offering a deeper and more compelling understanding of the underlying currents of market share gains and losses across frequency bands and air interface standards within the industry.
In this tenth edition of the report, we have eliminated the pro forma analysis for Alcatel-Lucent and NSN as well as dropping the individual frequency band analysis for the air interfaces. We have also upgraded Samsung Electronics to a major supplier status and have added their profile into Chapter 7.
