Worldwide Cellular Base Station Forecast

A booming subscriber base and new technology are propelling the market for cellular base station equipment to new heights, according to In-Stat.

Cellular markets in emerging economies such as China and India continue to expand and require additional infrastructure to increase areas of service, the high-tech market research firm says.

"In addition to the sheer number of cellular base stations required to provide coverage to the planet, cellular technology is always evolving, requiring cellular operators to shutdown their old networks and build new networks, sometimes from scratch," says Allen Nogee, In-Stat analyst.

The market research study is entitled the "5-Year Worldwide Cellular Base Station Report,
2006-2011" which covers the worldwide market for cellular base stations. It provides forecasts for base station units by technology and by region. It includes analysis of major trends shaping this market.

In-Stat's market study found the following:

- By 2011, In-Stat forecasts that the total number of cellular base stations will exceed 3.1 million, up from 1.8 million in 2006.

- Cellular demand in China and India will keep sales of GSM base stations strong for many years to come.

- Licenses for TD-SCDMA will be given out in 2008, but shipments of TD-SCDMA base stations will pale in comparison to WCDMA base station shipments.
