Samsung and ZTE collectively gained five points of revenue share in the Asia Pacific region,

according to a report from Dell’Oro Group. But the report released today did not reveal more details.

Investment in LTE network and 5G network in the Asia Pacific region has added fuel to the Radio Access Networks (RAN) market in Q2 2019.

Samsung was the main supplier for 5G network development in South Korea. South Korea is the number one 5G market in the world at present.

Healthy demand for low-band LTE solutions and surging 5G mid-band deployments in China and South Korea helped to drive the acceleration of the overall RAN market in the world. The report did not reveal details about the share or revenue of leading players such as Nokia, Huawei and Ericsson.

The Asia Pacific region, including China, comprised more than 80 percent of worldwide RAN growth between H1 2018 and H1 2019.

5G NR growth in the Asia Pacific region was 3x to 4x the size of the incremental LTE upside, Stefan Pongratz, vice president at Dell’Oro Group, said.
