LTE Market Size, Share, Growth, Forecast Overview :
The Global LTE Market was valued at $158.49 billion in 2016, and is projected to reach $6,746.66 billion by 2024, having a CAGR of 60.3% during the forecast period of 2017 to 2024.
Long Term Evolution (LTE) is a 4G wireless broadband technology which is capable to provide a data speed from 30Mbps to 100 Mbps. LTE supports mixed data, voice, video and messaging traffic. Outside of the US telecommunications market, GSM is the leading mobile standard, with more than 80% of the world's cellphone users. extraordinary data rates, higher capacity, and new levels of user experience are key features offered by LTE technology. Increasing user adoption is one of the prime factor which has brought the need for high-speed mobile broadband internet. According to United States Telecom Association, Wireless broadband in rural areas is expected to grow by 117% by 2026.
Increased need for higher data transfer rates and adoption of LTE by operators in Asia Pacific are major drivers of the LTE market. Further, need for high quality of services, application of LET in public safety, and greater spectral efficiency determined by large data usage also fuels the market. There were nearly 7.4 million LTE subscriber till 2011 and out of which 1.3 million were out of Asia-Pacific region. However, Asia Pacific is expected to witness impressive growth during the forecast period. Uneven and limited spectrum and network performance reliability are major restraints of the market. Growth in wireless Infrastructure and rising demand for LTE-enabled devices are expected to offer lucrative opportunities.
