The Global Small cell market is anticipated to grow from $1408 million in 2016 to $13911million by 2025, at a CAGR of 28.98% between 2016 and 2025. Small cells are miniature telecom base stations. These cells transmit a low-power signal, covering a much smaller area than the traditional macrocell base stations. The Small cell market is primarily driven by the following factors:

  • Propagation of small cells
  • Rise in mobile data traffic
  • Improvements in mobile broadband technology
  • Increased need for efficient public safety operations

The important driver increasing the growth of the global Small cell Market is Propagation of small cells. Small cell technology has been a major advancement in mobile network development, which plays an important role in expanding the capacity of wireless networks. It provides flexibility and increases the service quality at an economical cost. Small cells are of three type’s: femtocells, picocells, and microcells. Wi-Fi is a small cell, and it does not operate in the licensed spectrum or interoperate with mobile macrocells that are SON.

The End users of Small cell market are huge as the market is flourishing. The growth in the Residential and SOHO is being hindered by the stringent regulatory norms for telecom operators in some countries. For instance, some countries have norms that require network operators to offer exact information on every base station location. Further, to meet E911 requirements, operators have to offer the registered locations of mobile network equipment to emergency services such as fire brigades and health and safety agencies. In the enterprise segment, transceivers with 3G and 4G/LTE radio are deployed in enterprise building and on-campus either by an enterprise or by a mobile operator. In the urban segment, the transceiver with 3G and 4G/LTE radio serves as the connection point between a wireless device and the cellular network for thickly populated environments such as outdoor ( parks or city centers) or indoor ( convention centers, shopping malls, or transport hubs). In the rural and remote segment, the transceiver with 3G and 4G/LTE radio serves as the connecting point between the cellular network and a wireless device delivering coverage for isolated locations and remote communities.

Site acquisition and working with building owners for outdoor deployments are somewhat challenging and the major factors hindering the Small cell market. Site acquisition will remain a challenge for some time. Basically, a service provider classifies a hole in its macro exposure, wants to organize a small cell, and novelties it’s unbearable because the finest location of that small cell is a residence possessed by somebody else. Occasionally it works out, but in many cases, conferences are throbbing.

The Global Small cell market segments include products, technologies, and end users.

Products are segmented into:

  • Femtocell
  • Microcell
  • Metrocell
  • Picocell

Technologies are segmented into:

  • 3G
  • 4G/LTE
  • 2G

End users are segmented into:

  • Residential and SOHO
  • Enterprise
  • Urban
  • Rural and remote

This report covers the present market conditions and the growth prospects of the global Small cell market for 2017-2025 and considered the revenue generated through the sales of the Small cell for products, technologies as well as applications to calculate the market size by considering 2016 as the base year.

Geographically, the global Small cell market has been segmented on the basis of four major regions, which include:

  • North America – U.S. & Canada
  • Asia-Pacific – China, India, Japan, Australia, South Korea and Rest of APAC
  • Europe – UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and Rest of Europe
  • Rest of World- Latin America, Middle East and North Africa, Rest of Africa

The Small cell market in North America is expected to hold the largest share by 2025. In North America, the mobile network operators have outsourced their mobile backhaul networking requirements to wholesale mobile backhaul network operators. The mobile network operatives seek faster, better, and more cost-effective ways to upgrading and sustain their mobile backhaul links to keep abreast with the ongoing bandwidth growth and the performance related to 4G wireless services. On the other hand, the Asia-Pacific market is anticipated to be the fastest-growing region for the Small cell market. The market in APAC is currently experiencing rapid growth in revenue, mainly due to the growing requirement for high-speed data networks in most countries of this region. China and Japan are the major revenue contributors in this region. There is an increased penetration of smartphones and the rise in data traffic that is contributing to market growth.

The Small Cell Market is segmented by products which are sub-divided into Femtocell, Microcell, Metrocell, and Picocell; and  on the basis of technologies which is sub-divided into 3G, 4G/LTE and 2G; and also on the basis of end users which include Residential and SOHO, Enterprise, Urban and Rural and remote. The global small cell market is dominated by the femtocells segment because of the high acceptance of smart calculating devices and an upsurge in applications of smartphone for availing value-added services (VAS). In the case of the microcell, the telecom providers can install low-cost solutions to enable high-speed capacity solutions that work with the existing cell phone systems. Metrocells are deployed by operators for extensive public use in streets and thickly populated urban areas. Public Wi-Fi access is widely used in shopping malls, transportation centers, and hospitality areas and CSPs are trying to balance this access with indoor picocells. 3G is the third generation of wireless technologies. It comes with enhancements over previous wireless technologies, like high-speed transmission, advanced multimedia access, and global roaming. 4G is the fourth generation of cellular phone technology that trails on from the prevailing 2G and 3G mobile technology. The most distinguished upgrade to 2G over its precursor is the numeral encryption of mobile conversations, and significantly higher effect on the spectrum, which permits for greater permeation level for mobile phones.
