DUBLIN, March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

With the influx of China-based products into the market and threats from Wi-Fi solutions to replace LTE for some data services, the competition in the Global LTE Infrastructure market is expected to remain hypercompetitive during the forecast period. The competition may be eased off through either some vendors dropping out of the market or vendors opting for price war. To sustain their position in the market, LTE infrastructure vendors are expected to adopt the strategy of manufacturing small and price-competitive products.
European telecom vendors will again face cut-throat price competition against their highly price-competitive Chinese counterparts as well as among themselves. Since the surge of Chinese telecom vendors, Huawei and ZTE, the top European vendors are facing threats for their market share. During the forecast period, emerging countries will contribute a lot to the LTE market but at the same time will demand price-sensitive solutions from the vendors. During the forecast period, the world is expected to spend billions of dollars on high-speed networks, punishing margins at a time when profitability is already under pressure, especially for European vendors.
According to the report, one of the main drivers is the increase in the demand for mobile internet and other data-centric applications. . In recent years, the Telecom industry has witnessed a surge in data-driven services, a trend that is likely to continue throughout the period 2013-2018. Such services require higher bandwidth, greater speed, and better coverage. LTE is accepted to be the most efficient mobile technology to cater to increasing data services.
Further, the report states that one of the main challenges is the overarching dominance of HSPA/HSPA+ technology. HSPA and LTE are the two technologies that the industry has faith in for handling unstoppable data services. Given HSPA's first mover advantage, and relatively evolved ecosystem, HSPA poses a major threat to the growth of LTE technology. During the forecast period, there will be continued tussle between LTE and HSPA acceptance. Depending upon factors such as cost and bandwidth, the operators around the world will adopt either of the technologies.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
