EJL Wireless Research Reports Global Macrocell BTS Transceiver Market Volumes increased 31% in 2015

Record Shipments despite Grafting Probe in China

China demand slowing down

Salem, NH, May 31, 2016 – The global macrocell base transmitting station (BTS) transceiver (TRx) market grew by 31% in units in 2015 and marked a third year of record shipments, according to the latest report from EJL Wireless Research titled “Global Macrocell BTS Transceiver Market Analysis and Forecast, 12th Edition, 2016-2020.” “Last year marked the peak of the most recent cycle of LTE spending, driven by China. As expected, Huawei remained the world’s leading supplier however ZTE, for the first time, was able to move up to second in our market share rankings due to the demand in China. This marks the first time in the wireless industry that both Chinese suppliers are at the top of the market share globally,” says founder and President, Earl Lum. The report provides a unique perspective on the global shipments and demand for base station radio transceiver equipment covering all air interface standards and frequencies and major OEMs including Ericsson, Huawei Technologies, Nokia Networks, Samsung Electronics, and ZTE.

EJL Wireless Research Analyzes Supply Chain Impact on ZTE Corporation

ZTE no longer exists in the eyes of U.S. based suppliers

U.S. Commerce Department’s addition of ZTE to Entity List has significant ripple effect across global wireless industry

Financial Impact not contained within U.S. based suppliers

Salem, NH, March 14, 2016:  The global financial impact of ZTE Corporation being placed on the Entity List by the U.S. Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security on Tuesday March 8, 2016 is significant according to the latest report from EJL Wireless Research titled “Supply Chain and End Customer Impact of United States Commerce Department restrictions for ZTE Corporation.” “Unfortunately for ZTE, the current situation essentially forces the company to shut down its manufacturing operations over the next several weeks as current inventory is consumed. No U.S. based company is able to ship any product to ZTE. We do not see any reasonable near term work around in procuring critical high performance semiconductor components such as multi-core microprocessors and FPGAs” says founder and President, Earl Lum.

The analysis lists U.S. and international and companies that are currently supplying semiconductor and other electronic components and materials to ZTE’s radio access networking equipment division as well as its mobile handset division.

“We have analyzed different scenarios that may occur over the next several months to quarters with the assumption that the export ban to ZTE for U.S. companies remains in effect. The outlook at face value for ZTE is bleak without direct Chinese government intervention,” says Lum.

EJL Wireless Research Forecasts Multi-Gb Radio Shipments to reach 36% share by 2020

Millimeter wave 60GHz and 71-86GHz radios pave the way to 10Gbps Performance
