Femtocell market
Femtocell market is growing at 17.7 percent CAGR to 2019 driven by LTE femtocells, VoWi-Fi and VoLTE, said RnRMarketResearch.com.

Growth driver for global femtocell market is the increased demand for LTE femtocells and increased use of VoWi-Fi and VoLTE.

Telecom network operators focus more on launching LTE-based femtocells as they provide more ARPU compared to 3G and W-CDMA femtocells. An enterprise femtocell can handle 16 concurrent calls and transmit approximately 100 mW RF power levels that can be used among 300-400 people, said the report.

Airvana, Alcatel-Lucent (Nokia Networks), Cisco and Samsung are some of the top femtocell vendors in the global telecom market.

Alpha Networks, Cellcomm, China Mobile, China Telecom, China Unicom, D-Link, Fujitsu, Huawei, Intel, ip.access, Juni Global, NEC, Nokia Solutions and Networks, NTT Docomo, Qualcomm, SingTel Optus, Texas Instruments and ZTE are also driving the market.

The demand for LTE-based femtocells is driven by increased deployment of LTE networks in APAC. China Mobile’s rollout of TD-LTE in 2014 is expected to propel the femtocell market. In North America and Western Europe, with the early deployment of LTE, the adoption LTE femtocells is already very high. Femtocells provide faster
transmission of voice and data signals and decrease network traffic.

Femtocell market in Asia Pacific will grow at a CAGR of 20.11 percent over the period 2015-2019. In 2014, mobile data traffic grew 69 percent because of increased usage of mobile broadband among consumers as consumers in emerging markets such as India, China, Philippines, Indonesia, and South Korea spend a lot of time on the Internet.
