EJL Wireless Research Reports Global Macrocell BTS Antenna Shipments Down 1% in 2018

5G 1+0 site configuration drives antenna integration

Passive antenna shipments decline 3% as industry shifts to higher port count antennas

Half Moon Bay, CA November 5, 2019:  Shipments of outdoor macrocell BTS antennas experienced a decline of 1% in 2018, according to the latest report from EJL Wireless Research titled “Global BTS Antenna Market Analysis and Forecast, 2019-2023 11th Edition.” “Passive antenna shipments declined by 3% year over year but total port counts increased 26% year over year, supporting our thesis that while total passive antenna radome shipments are expected to see a continued decline, overall antenna port counts will continue to increase in addition to increasing average selling prices,” says founder and President, Earl Lum. EJL Wireless Research is forecasting increasing antenna unit shipments over the next several years as active MM-ARS products for 5G offset declining passive antenna volumes.
