Wireless Infrastructure Market Opportunities, Strategies and Forecasts, 2002-2007

Wireless infrastructure companies responding to changes in the worldwide wireless communications industry that includes moves toward digital systems.  The carriers are purchasing digital systems that support IP 3G architecture, changing the character of wireless telecommunications markets.

A strong financial condition positions a few companies with competitive advantage that positions them to gain market share in the long term.  Nokia, Alcatel, Motorola, and Siemens have a significant competitive advantage.  Lucent and Ericsson are well positioned in the market, but have some hurdles as well.  Companies with a broad market presence in service provider and enterprise markets, in components, software, and equipment have strategic advantage. 

By 2007, wireless markets will account for 55% of telecommunications markets.  By this time, handset and wireless switch sales will begin to slow due to market saturation.  Base station spending is strong as companies compete to achieve better coverage.

Wireless telecommunications equipment accounts for 55% of the total telecommunications market in 2001.  Wireless base station infrastructure, wireless switches, and consumer handset equipment markets represent the largest segments.  Wireless segments account for growth occurring in the near term in telecommunications markets.

Markets are expected to be flat in 2002 and then grow steadily as service providers compete to improve their coverage.  Wireless switch markets at $35.8 billion in 2001 are expected to drop to $34.7 billion in 2002 and begin to recover by 2005.  Growth recurs in 2007 as markets reach $50.9 billion.
