Asia-Pacific Region WiMAX Solution Forecast

The WiMAX industry is accelerating in the Asia Pacific region, but technology and business uncertainties remain, reports In-Stat. The total APAC market, including WiMAX CPEs, WiMAX Base stations and WiMAX commercial services, but excluding the non-radio-access part of total WiMAX solutions, is valued at $106.4 million in 2006, and that figure will grow to $4.3 billion in 2011.

"No APAC service provider can ignore WiMAX," says Victor Liu, In-Stat analyst. "Providers need either to evaluate the possibility of adding WiMAX to their existing services portfolio, or to assess the competitive pressure from other WiMAX service providers."

In-Stat study found the following:

- Trial network deployments are in progress in at least 13 APAC countries.
- Many service providers in developing countries such as India, Thailand, Philippines, and Indonesia have shown great interest in setting up WiMAX networks and extending telecommunication services coverage to under-served places.
