Worldwide Telecoms Equipment Forecast

Worldwide total telecom and datacom equipment revenue reached $107.9 billion in 2005 and will grow 33 percent to $143.5 billion in 2009, according to a new market share and forecast report by Infonetics Research.

Wireless broadband and mobile radio access equipment makes up the largest portion of revenue, but the expected increase is fueled by phenomenal growth in service provider next generation voice equipment and broadband aggregation and IPTV equipment. Wireless LAN equipment sales are surging as well, but represent a small market overall.

"Three major trends are driving the growth we're seeing in the telecom and datacom market: People worldwide are communicating over networks and the Internet via broadband. Carriers are moving to a single converged data network incorporating voice and video along with traditional data. And mobile and fixed wireline networks of data, voice, and video are converging. With all of these changes come increased security concerns, both in carrier and enterprise networks, and all have long-term implications on spending that keep growth in the market relatively high through 2009," said Jeff Wilson, principal analyst at Infonetics Research.

Report Highlights:

-The service provider next gen voice and IMS market represents 2 percent of the total telecom/datacom market now, doubling to 4 percent in 2009, driven by the move to IMS and by fixed-mobile convergence.
-The IPTV equipment market has a stunning compound annual growth rate of 99 percent from 2005 to 2009.
-Wireless broadband and mobile radio access equipment will slow in 2006 as historically strong spending in GSM/CDMA shifts over to spending on 3G equipment worldwide.
-Cisco is the revenue-leading vendor by far in worldwide telecom/datacom equipment market share, with 19 percent.
-Nortel is second and Huawei is third, followed closely by fourth-place Alcatel and fifth-place Siemens.
