Base Transceiver Station Antenna Market Outlook, Opportunity and Demand Analysis, Forecast 2018 – 2026
Base transceiver station (BTS) refers to the telecom equipment that enables wireless communication between the network and device. The network can be any wireless network such as Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM), Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA), Wi-Fi, or Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX). As a part of wireless communication, a typical BTS has equipment for decryption and encryption of data, antennas, duplexers, transceivers, and amplifiers, to name a few. Operations of a BTS are controlled by a base station controller.
Telecom operators are focusing on expanding their network capacity and coverage in order to improve their market position. Furthermore, as demand for mobile broadband services continues to rise, mobile wireless network service providers are aiming toward expanding their network capacity. Telecom operators are focusing on providing network connectivity services in untapped markets and generate new revenue streams. For instance, in June 2018, AT&T Communications, Inc. announced that it would deploy small cells and fiber infrastructure in San Jose, California to support smart-city initiative and make the municipality ready for 5G. Such network expansion initiatives are likely to compel telecom operators to deploy base stations in order to provide connectivity services. This is expected to act as a driving factor for base transceiver station antenna market globally.

The global base transceiver station antenna market can be segmented based on equipment type, vendor type, deployment, service, and region. In terms of equipment type, the base transceiver station antenna market can be divided into omnidirectional antennas and directional (or sector) antennas. Based on vendor type, the base transceiver station antenna market can be categorized into original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC). OEMs are expected to hold larger share of the market due to the packaged services provided by them at unique pricing.
On the basis of deployment, the global base transceiver station antenna market can be classified into rural area and urban area. The rural area market segment is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. This is due to the fact that telecom operators are focusing on providing connectivity services to untapped markets, especially in the developing economies. The services segment of the base transceiver station antenna market can be bifurcated into site implementation & installation, consulting, and operation & maintenance.
In terms of region, the global base transceiver station antenna market can be classified into North America, Europe, Middle East & Africa, Asia Pacific, and South America. Currently, North America is expected to dominate the global market, in terms of revenue, due to significant adoption of 4G and 5G services in the U.S. According to a study conducted by Accenture, commissioned by Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA), wireless operators in the U.S. are likely to invest nearly US$ 275 Bn over the next seven years to build 5G networks. In October 2018, the U.S. President Donald J. Trump signed a presidential memorandum to develop a national strategy for spectrum policy to develop America’s 5G connectivity.
This is projected to drive the base transceiver station antenna market in North America. Asia Pacific is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities to key players operating in the global base transceiver station antenna market in the next few years. The base transceiver station antenna market in China is expected to witness stagnant growth, while the market in India is anticipated to grow prominently during the forecast period. In 2017, India had around 450,000 base stations; the major service providers are focusing on increasing this number to 850,000 by the end of 2020.
