Driven by in-building wireless coverage requirements and the growing influx of mobile broadband data traffic, a traditional macrocell based cellular network deployment is not deemed to be a sufficient solution to address the coverage and capacity needs of today's wireless subscribers.

Wireless carriers are thus increasing their investments in Heterogeneous Network or HetNet infrastructure such as strategically deployed small cells, carrier WiFi and DAS (Distributed Antenna System) nodes, to cope with increasing capacity and coverage requirements. Adding further to the heterogeneity is the shift towards a C-RAN (Centralized RAN) architecture, which centralizes baseband functionality to be shared across a large number of distributed radio nodes. In comparison to standalone clusters of base stations, C-RAN provides significant performance and economic benefits such as baseband pooling, enhanced coordination between cells, virtualization, network extensibility and energy efficiency.

Driven by the thriving ecosystem, we expect small cell, carrier WiFi, C-RAN and DAS networks to account for over 80% of all mobile data traffic by the end of 2020, while overall spending on HetNet infrastructure is expected to reach $40 Billion annually during the same period.

The report comes with an associated Excel datasheet suite covering quantitative data from over 300 numeric forecasts presented in the report.

Key Findings

Despite an ongoing decline in traditional macrocell infrastructure spending, small cells, carrier WiFi, C-RAN, DAS, small cell backhaul and C-RAN fronthaul investments will continue to grow over the coming years. By the end of 2020, the market will account for nearly $40 Billion in revenue

HetNet infrastructure is expected to carry more than 80% of all mobile network data traffic by 2020
Driven by the promise of higher capacity in unlicensed spectrum, LTE-U small cell shipments are expected to grow at a CAGR of 80% between 2016 and 2020. By the end of 2020, LTE-U investments will account for nearly $2 Billion

As wireless carriers look to migrate towards scalable centralized baseband architectures, C-RAN investments will grow at a CAGR of 23% between 2015 and 2020. By the end of 2020, C-RAN investments will account for nearly $14 Billion

Eyeing the momentum behind C-RAN, a number of small cell vendors such as Airvana and SpiderCloud, have aligned their offerings with the C-RAN concept

At present, the HetNet value chain is highly fragmented with 'pure-play' specialists and incumbent macrocell vendors battling to gain a higher share of the market. SNS Research expects the value chain to consolidate over the coming years following a string of acquisitions by industry giants such as Nokia
