Huawei continues to dominate the $100 billion global telecom equipment market in 2021, according to a report by Dell’Oro Group.
The telecommunications infrastructure market includes broadband access, microwave and optical transport, mobile core network (MCN), radio access network (RAN), and SP router and switch.
Huawei, Ericsson, Nokia, ZTE, Cisco, Samsung, and Ciena are the major vendors in the telecommunications network market, based on their revenue share.
The telecommunications statistics graph shows that Huawei, Nokia, Cisco and Ciena were under pressure in 2021.
The global telecommunications equipment market grew 2% in the fourth quarter and 7% in 2021, recording a fourth consecutive year of growth, fueled by rising wireless revenues and healthy demand for wireline equipment.
There was double-digit growth for both RAN and broadband access. Total global telecommunications equipment revenue approached $100 billion, up more than 20% since 2017.
US government efforts to limit the use of Huawei’s telecommunications network equipment are impacting the company’s position outside of China. Huawei led the global telecom networking market, highlighting its hold on the Chinese market, the depth of its telecom portfolio and its resilience with existing footprints.
Outside of China, Ericsson and Nokia were essentially tied at 20% and Huawei accounted for around 18% of the market.
Global telecommunications equipment growth is expected to slow from 7% in 2021 to 4% in 2022, reflecting new supply chain and capital expenditure data.
