IHS: Carrier WiFi equipment market to reach $1.5B by 2020

IHS Technology said the global carrier Wi-Fi equipment market amounted to $713 million (€624 million) in 2015. By 2020, the market is forecast to reach $1.5 billion and have a cumulative size of over $6.8 billion for 2016–2020 based on two strong segments: standalone Wi-Fi access points predominantly deployed by fixed-line operators, cable multiple system operators (MSOs) and wireless internet service providers (ISPs); and dual mode Wi-Fi/cellular access points deployed by mobile operators. For the full-year 2015, Asia Pacific led the carrier Wi-Fi market in terms of geographical breakdown, ahead of EMEA, North America and Latin America. The top three vendors for carrier Wi-Fi equipment revenue share in 2015 were, in alphabetical order, Cisco, Huawei and Ruckus Wireless. Release
