Huawei captured 28 percent share of the telecom equipment market, increasing its market share by 4 percentage points since 2015.
We just wrapped up the 3Q 2018 reporting period for all the Telecommunications Infrastructure programs.
For the first nine months of 2018, the top five equipment manufacturers were Huawei, Nokia, Ericsson, Cisco, and ZTE. Combined these five companies accounted for about 75% of the worldwide service provider equipment market revenue.
Additional key takeaways from the reports period include:
- The overall telecom equipment market declined 2 percent year-over-year for the 1Q 2018 through 3Q18 period. Robust demand for Optical Transport and Microwave Transmission equipment was not enough to offset declining Core and Service Provider Router revenues.
- Huawei’s revenue share continued to improve in 2018—up around four percentage points between 2015 and the first nine months of 2018. During this period, Ericsson’s and Nokia’s market share declined one and three percentage points, respectively.
- Huawei’s telecom equipment revenue is nearly as large as Nokia and Ericsson combined.
- Huawei’s revenue share gains over the past four years have been most pronounced in the Core, Router, and Optical Transport Markets.
