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.

5G Massive MIMO ARS shipments capture 2% share due to initial deployments in U.S., South Korea, and China
5G demand is a mixed bag with 8T8R RRU emerging as the entry point, not 64T64R ARS
Half Moon Bay, CA August 26, 2019: Shipments of remote radio units (RRU)/antenna radio systems (ARS) experienced a decline of 13% in 2018 after growth in 2017, according to the latest report from EJL Wireless Research titled “Global Macrocell RRU/ARS Market Analysis and Forecast, 2019-2023 3rd Edition.” “The last several years have been choppy due to the transition from 4G to 5G, coupled with the U.S. export ban on ZTE in 2018, and continued mobile operator consolidation. LTE networks are mature and now migrating to LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) and LTE-Advanced Pro configurations,” says founder and President, Earl Lum. EJL Wireless Research is forecasting another down year in 2019 before a recovery in 2020. Continue reading EJL Wireless Research Reports Global Macrocell RRU/ARS Shipments Down 13% in 2018
