This research report presents shipment volume and value forecast and recent quarter review of the Taiwanese small cell industry. The report includes shipment volume, shipment value, ASP, shipment volume breakdowns by technology, price point, business type, customer type, and production locations. The content of this report is based on primary data obtained through interviews with Taiwanese small cell makers running factories either in Taiwan or mainland China.
The report finds that the worldwide small cell shipment volume is estimated to have reached 5.2 million units in 2015, up 16% year on year, thanks to leading telecom operators' continuous investments. Small cell demand is expected to grow further in 2016 as large wireless providers have recognized the importance of small cells in network densification, LTE-Advanced Pro, or even 5G. MIC predicts that Taiwanese small cell shipment volume will total around 1.4 million units in the first half of 2016, roughly staying flat compared to the same period last year.
