Global Mobile Backhaul & Fronthaul Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Mobile backhaul is the transport of mobile data traffic between a cell site and the core network.

The main purpose of mobile backhaul is to provide high-capacity links between cell sites and the core network, in order to support increasing demand for mobile data. Mobile backhaul can be delivered over a variety of different technologies, including copper, fiber, microwave, and millimeter wave.

Mobile fronthaul is a subset of mobile backhaul that refers specifically to the transport of traffic from cell sites to baseband units (BBUs). BBUs are typically located in central offices or other locations close to the core network.

Mobile Backhaul:

Mobile backhaul is the portion of a mobile communication network that connects the mobile station to the fixed communication network. It includes all components such as Radio Frequency (RF) modules, base transceiver stations, transmitters and receivers used in mobiles for establishing radio connections with other cells over a wide area or through intermediate nodes. Mobile backhaul market has been witnessing significant growth due to increasing demand for data services along with rising investments in infrastructure by telecom operators globally.

Mobile Fronthaul:

Mobile fronthaul and it's usage in mobile backhaul & fronthaul market is a communication technology that allows the establishment of a private communications network between two or more end-points, which are usually located at different geographical locations. The term “fronthaul” is used for the communication from one end-point to another using wireless mediums like radio frequency (RF), infrared (IR) or optical signals.

Application Insights:

The networking segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2016 and is anticipated to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The segment growth can be attributed to increasing demand for high-speed data transfer services across networks. Furthermore, deployment of 5G technology is expected to drive the mobile backhaul & fronthaul market in future as it provides high-speed data transfer services between different parts of a network.

The telecommunications segment accounted for a significant revenue share in 2016 and is projected to grow at a rapid pace over the forecast period owing to growing demand from telecom service providers globally. The need for improved wireless connectivity has become critical as more people are using smartphones which have created huge bandwidth requirements among network operators globally. This will create additional pressure on existing infrastructure during peak hours of usage, thereby driving adoption of mobile backhaul & fronthaul solutions worldwide.

Regional Analysis:

The Asia Pacific region is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for mobile backhaul and fronthaul solutions from service providers in this region. The growing number of mobile data users across this region has led to an increased requirement for high-speed wireless connectivity, thereby driving the market growth. Moreover, investments by companies such as China Telecom and China Mobile in building their 4G/LTE networks are expected to drive regional market growth over the next eight years.

North America accounted for a major revenue share in 2017 owing to early adoption of 3GPP technologies such as Long Term Evolution (LTE) and Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) among others. Furthermore, presence of prominent players with extensive experience in developing advanced wireless infrastructure is also contributing towards regional market development.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for mobile data services: The increasing demand for mobile data services is one of the major growth drivers for the global mobile backhaul and fronthaul market. This is because the need for high-speed and reliable backhaul and fronthaul connectivity is essential to support the growing traffic volume generated by advanced applications such as 4G/LTE, 5G, and M2M.
  • Proliferation of small cells: The proliferation of small cells is another key factor that is expected to drive the growth of the global mobile backhaul and fronthaul market in coming years. Small cells are being increasingly deployed by telecom operators to densify their network coverage in order to meet rising customer demand for high-quality wireless services. As a result, there will be an increased need for efficient backhaul and fronthaul connectivity solutions that can handle large volumes of traffic seamlessly.
  • Emergence of 5G technology: The emergence of 5G technology is another major factor that is anticipated to fuel growth in the global mobile backhaul and fronthaul market over the next few years. With 5G networks slated to offer significantly higher bandwidths than current generation networks, there will be an even greater demand for robust backend infrastructure capable of handling increased traffic loads efficiently. This provides a huge opportunityfor players operating in this space as telecom operators invest heavily in upgrading their infrastructure aheadof5G rollouts worldwide .
