Mobile Antenna Competition Intensifies as 5G Radio Access Network Deployment Grows; Huawei Remains Market Leader

Competition in the antenna vendor market is heating up as 5G rolls out and market share is coming under serious pressure. In its recent analysis of the worldwide mobile cellular 4G and 5G antennas market, ABI Research finds that Huawei remains the market leader in the base station antenna market, retaining a first place in both the market share and vendor rankings. Following Huawei, other companies within the top five for market share include, CommScope, Kathrein Mobile Communication, Rosenberger, and ACE Technologies.  Together, these five vendors comprise more than 70% of the total market in terms of revenue. While the names of the top 5 remain the same, there has been a shuffle in the order with CommScope has taken the second position in 2019.

2019 was the year that 5G started to roll out and trialed. By the end of 2019, South Korea reported more than 90,000 5G base stations had been deployed and China had built out more than 130,000 5G base stations. “The move toward the 5G rollout is creating new challenges as the antenna and radio must be integrated for optimal utilization of site space and network performance. The successful performance of the 5G network will increasingly depend on the antenna, making antenna an essential component in the operator’s network,” explains Dean Tan, Research Analyst.
