REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – August 10, 2016 – According to a recently published report from Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, the Mobile Infrastructure market started 2016 in a slump with 4G down year-over-year in 1H16 and 3G experiencing waterfall declines.

“Many of the trends that characterized the market in the first quarter extended into the second quarter reflecting challenging market conditions in all regions for all MRAN2Q16PRFiguremajor vendors, contradicting the idea that China alone is responsible for the slowdown,” said Stefan Pongratz, analyst at Dell’Oro Group. “The competitive dynamics and market conditions will likely remain extremely challenging for some time, as there are fewer 4G contracts on which to bid, and it will be at least three or four more years before there will be any meaningful 5G revenues. On the upside, we expect demand to improve sequentially in the second half and did not make any material adjustments to the overall outlook for 2016 and continue to forecast the total RAN market to decline 8 percent in 2016 and 2  to 3 percent in 1H17,” continued Pongratz.

With the exception of Nokia, which is undergoing a transition period, revenue share positions were relatively stable in the first half of 2016. Huawei, Ericsson, and Nokia were the top 3 vendors, accounting for more than 80 percent of the market.
