2014-04-28 05:54:01 - Global Mobile Broadband Market 2013-2018 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
Revenue in the global mobile broadband is forecast to grow to a value of around $231 billion by the end of 2013. Formerly treated as a luxury in developed nations, mobile broadband speeds are quickly becoming a global norm. Ubiquitous high-speed connectivity is being engendered by network operators and national governments alike. Networks are making their foray into fibre backbones, which will facilitate the installation of LTE small cells and push heterogeneous networks forward.Emerging markets will play a central role in mobile broadband market expansion. Whereas developed mobile markets such as those of Japan, Sweden, and Korea are reaching saturation, China, India, Indonesia, and the like are becoming hotbeds for smartphone proliferation. Many of these have lower smartphone penetration rates,
rising per capita income, and a strong tendency towards FMS, trends that indicate a prosperous, fast-growing immediate future for mobile broadband.Dominated by HSPA, the mobile broadband market is set to grow hand-in-hand with fixed broadband, LBS, IPTV, automotive connectivity, and mobile VoIP. Strong and diverse offerings from OEMs, rapid 3G/4G deployment tables from operators, and increasing receptiveness from regulators all point to a surging mobile broadband ecosystem that is prepared to keep pace with expanding consumer demand.There are a few limitations to VoIP at the current point in time, these are connectivity and pricing. VoIP is considered to be a threat for MNO´s worldwide, as more people switch to VoIP to make calls their revenues are being adversely affected. Therefore in a bid to decrease VoIP calling, MNO´s are trying to offer limited data usage based mobile broadband packages to its customers. This would result in excessive data use, which will turn out quite costly for the customers. In addition VoIP faces the problem of connectivity limitations as with the small proximity of Wi-Fi networks and the unavailability of mobile broadband in certain areas and buildings.However the increased use of IP based calling services such as Skype or Viber will hinder the revenues of the MNO´s as the usage of voice calls over the network is decreasing as VoIP software´s take over as means of IP to IP voice and video calls. 4G LTE technologies would give a rise to this trend by providing higher speeds and increased mobility.Paris-based Alcatel Lucent (ALU) is engaged in mobile, wireline, IP and optics technologies, applications and services. Alcatel-Lucent lies amongst the leading 4G LTE infrastructure providers. It is expecting to land further LTE infrastructure contracts in Latin America. The majority of ALU´s revenue growth in this region will come from Brazil and Mexico, where the company has secured contracts for LTE deployment.
