Microwave Transmission and Mobile Backhaul Markets Forecast to Reverse Course in 2019, According to Dell’Oro Group

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., July 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to a newly published report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, the Microwave Transmission and Mobile Backhaul markets are expected to continue contracting for another two years before reversing direction in 2019, at which time these markets will return to growth. Market expansion is expected to be driven by the expanding use of outdoor small cells and the ramp of large 5G mobile radio deployments.

“It will likely continue to be a difficult environment for mobile backhaul equipment sales for the next two years,” stated Jimmy Yu, Vice President at Dell’Oro Group. “However, we do see light at the end of the tunnel. If we are correct and the mobile backhaul market resumes growth in 2019, we think the market revenue can rise to at least $5.5 billion by 2021,” Yu added.

Highlights from the Microwave Transmission & Mobile Backhaul 5-Year Forecast Report:

  • Due to the nature of small cell deployments and the capacity requirements of 5G mobile radios, fiber and copper will drive a higher share of backhaul links in the future. 
  • Small Cell backhaul equipment using fiber, copper, or wireless technologies is forecast to be a $1.6 B market by 2021.
  • The Microwave Transmission market is forecasted to reach $3.8 B by 2021. Mobile backhaul will drive approximately 70 percent of this revenue.
