mobile fronthaul Market Overview


Demand for mobile phones has taken off ever since  5G technology has been incorporated into smartphones. This has led to amazing mobile fronthaul market growth. This has been the case now that 4G/LTE mobile deployment networks are increasingly being used.


The fragmented nature of the global fronthaul industry has made it possible for many well-known telecoms players to prosper. A few of the successful smaller companies and larger heavyweights include Accelink Technologies Co. Ltd, MACOM Technologies, Nokia, and E-Blink SA.  These types of companies are responsible for most of the revenue generation in the global mobile fronthaul market.


An interesting development in the global fronthaul industry took place on January 22, 2018. This was when EXFO introduced SkyRan in the international mobile fronthaul market. SkyRan is a remote platform that is scalable and can easily access and monitor mobile fronthaul networks that are being troubleshot.


It is intended to guide mobile network operators who identify and resolve network issues before subscribers notice them.


Covid-19 analysis


The global imposition of the lockdown had a great impact on the customers, their consumption, and subsequently, the level of production of services by different firms. As is evident, many key players in the telecoms industry were already migrating towards new mobile phone industry solutions. However, the emergence of COVID-19 and the resulting pandemic has only accelerated this trend. Some of the key factors that served as major catalysts were remote buying and selling (read e-commerce) and contactless delivery.


This has been most obvious in the increasing number of key players who have entered the mobile fronthaul industry in the post-COVID world. For example, telecoms majors like Accelink Technologies (a Chinese telecoms multinational), MACOM Technologies (a major American player), Nokia Corporation (a well-established Finnish company), E-blink SA (a major French player), Finisar Corporation (American), OE Solutions (American), Innolight Technology Corporation (Chinese), Huawei Technologies, Co., Ltd (Chinese), Eoptolink Technologies, Inc (China), Microsemi Corporation (American), Xilinx (American), etc...are jumping in on the enormous mobile fronthaul market growth that the global consumers have created with their emphasis on remote and contactless buying.


Market Dynamics


Opportunities


Many opportunities are present for key players in the mobile fronthaul industry. These have been identified after extensive mobile fronthaul market research in the Asia Pacific, North American, European, and rest of the world markets. The North American market appears to be the most lucrative because it accounts for most of the mobile fronthaul market share.


According to extensive mobile fronthaul market research, the North American market is expected to witness the greatest amount of mobile fronthaul market growth in the next few years.


Restraints


There is expected to be growth in the traditionally sluggish markets in the Asia-Pacific region. However, the geographic map is not uniform in this regard. While the more mature Japanese market has proven to provide plum selling opportunities for those in the mobile fronthaul industry, the emerging markets in India and China have traditionally been more sluggish. The main reason for this used to be poverty, low purchasing power, lower disposable income, and a weaker middle class. However, years of increased economic growth are starting to erode these traditional barriers.


Challenges


There are many challenges in terms of keeping mobile fronthaul market growth high in the future. This primarily lies in tapping into the exploding lower-middle classes in developing nations like India and China. Though the people in these market segments are infinitely richer than their ancestors were, lower purchasing power and lower disposable incomes will continue to be the main challenge. Another challenge will be the lack of infrastructure and/or lack of developed infrastructure. Many areas of rural and semi-urban India and China face several hours of power outages a day.


Cumulative growth analysis


In general, the prospects for the global mobile phone industry continue to look bright from 2021 onwards. This is largely being driven by strong growth in all of the major regional markets - from North America to the rest of the world. For example, Europe alone is expected to experience strong year-on-year growth in the foreseeable future. The same is true of the Asia-Pacific and the rest of the world regions.


Segment Overview


The global mobile fronthaul industry is divided into two different segments:  5G technology and smartphones. The nature of the technologies used to power these devices and their uses largely determines their segmentation. The global mobile fronthaul industry is influenced by many factors. These are what section it off into many segments. These factors include type, services, network, end-user, and region. When it comes to defining these sections, the type section can be further divided into two subsections:  centralized RAN and Cloud-RAN. The services section is further divided into these subsections:  professional services and managed services.


Similarly, the network segment is further divided into the Passive WDM, Semi-passive WDM, Active WDM, and Ethernet & Others. These segments remain the same across the world. The global mobile fronthaul industry is divided into many markets:  North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the rest of the world.


Regional Analysis


There are many dominant forces globally in the current scenario, as well as, the future that is going to increase their market share. These regions are expected to witness strong growth in the sale of smartphones. Rising incomes in most of the countries that make up the Asia-Pacific region (namely India and China) are driving this. Japan has always been a prime consumer of electronics and this trend is continuing into the present. The North American regions, European nations, along the rest of the world are also seeing strong growth in terms of demand for mobile phones. Many companies are conducting deep and extensive mobile fronthaul market analysis to identify the best market opportunities for each region. The main reason is the mass production matching the demand, as well as, the consumer budget.


Competitive Landscape


There are currently many players in the global mobile phone industry. This includes large American, European, and Chinese mobile and telecoms majors.


Some of the major players include:



  • Accelink Technologies (America)

One major company that is poised to leverage the new opportunities is Huawei. It has repeatedly and consistently come up with the next-generation technologies that will define the next generation of smartphones and drive demand for them in the future. These technologies include X-Haul and C-RAN.


Recent Developments


Huawei Technologies Co, Ltd. was instrumental in helping China Mobile Tianjin launch the 4.5G/5G C-RAN mobile fronthaul bearer network. Many Chinese telecom networks and companies like China Telecom Liaoning, China Mobile Qingdao, China Telecom Tianjin, China Telecom Guizhou, China Unicom Liaoning, and China Mobile Tianjin have used the Huawei FO 810 technologies in their networks. This has been instrumental in helping them with two objectives:  meeting their C-RAN fronthaul requirements and fully supporting their wireless coverages.


Nokia Corporation formally announced its usage of new WDM modules in the attempt to expand its mobile fronthaul market share with new mobile fronthaul solutions. Network operators are expected to be the main beneficiaries of this development. One of the main things that it will do is help these operators speed up the adoption and usage of RAN architecture in their daily operations. There is one main benefit that will help the growing numbers of people who want to stream and download HD videos do so easily and quickly from mobile devices.
