Infonetics: Ethernet Microwave Gear up 5% from Year-Ago Quarter; Backhaul Fuels Overall Microwave Market Business Wire LONDON -- December 04, 2012 Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 3rd quarter 2012 (3Q12) Microwave Equipment market size, market share, and forecast report, which analyzes time-division multiplexing (TDM), Ethernet, and dual Ethernet/TDM microwave equipment by spectrum, capacity, form factor, and architecture. ANALYST NOTE “The microwave equipment market held steady overall in the 3rd quarter, with wildly varying results across segments,” reports Richard Webb, directing analyst for microwave, mobile offload, and mobile broadband devices at Infonetics Research. “Current trends will continue, with TDM microwave equipment declining precipitously; the large dual-mode TDM/Ethernet microwave segment waning as well but at a much slower rate; and Ethernet-only microwave equipment surging year after year, powered by sustained mobile macrocell backhaul demand.” Webb adds: “Among the top 3 players in the market, leader Ericsson posted a 7% revenue gain to give them nearly a quarter of the global market, their strongest standing since early 2011; Huawei, who had more than doubled their microwave revenue the previous quarter, saw a 19% decline this quarter; and NEC’s microwave revenue rose 17%, putting them within 1 market share point of Huawei. Alcatel-Lucent continue to lead the fast-growing Ethernet microwave segment.” MICROWAVE MARKET HIGHLIGHTS *While flat quarter-over-quarter in 3Q12, the worldwide microwave equipment market is down 4% from the year-ago 3^rd quarter, to $1.24 billion, weighed down by flagging sales of TDM and dual TDM/Ethernet microwave equipment *Meanwhile, the Ethernet microwave equipment segment is up 5% year-over-year and is forecast by Infonetics to grow at a 38% CAGR from 2011 to 2016 *In 3Q12, backhaul equipment made up 85% of total microwave revenue *EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) accounted for the highest regional proportion of microwave revenue, ahead of Asia Pacific, North America, and Latin America REPORT SYNOPSIS Infonetics' quarterly microwave equipment report provides worldwide and regional market size, vendor market share, forecasts, analysis, and trends for Ethernet, TDM, and hybrid microwave equipment by spectrum, capacity, form factor, and architecture.
