According to In-Stat research, Ericsson tops 2011 with over Rs.1,121.08 crore (($0.25 billion) in global LTE packet backhaul equipment revenue, a little over 25 per cent of the entire market.

The big six market players of Ericsson, Alcatel-Lucent, Nokia Siemens Networks, Huawei, Samsung, and Cisco comprise 93 per cent of the global LTE packet backhaul equipment market. Other participants of note include ZTE, Juniper, NEC, and Tellabs.

"It is important to note that the market is far from static," says Chris Kissel, analyst. "Although ZTE failed to make it into the segment's 'Big 6,' it is likely to make a strong push, jumping a couple of spots in the rankings by 2015. Another point of emphasis is that not all regions necessarily match the global totals since each region has its own set of dominant players. Huawei, for example, has almost 50 per cent of the market for global LTE packet backhaul equipment in Eastern Europe."

In-Stat research includes that Ericsson is the clear overall LTE equipment market leader through 2013. However, in 2015, four cellular infrastructure vendors will realise Rs.8,071.75 crore ($1.8 billion) or more in revenues from LTE RAN equipment sales. In 2015, as Asia Pacific countries deploy LTE in earnest, Ericsson, Huawei, Nokia Siemens, Alcatel-Lucent, and ZTE will all have at least 10 per cent of newly deployed LTE macro base station shipments in 2015.

In-Stat research further includes that from 2011 to2015, LTE RAN revenues will grow at a CAGR of 41 per cent. The top five vendors in global LTE EPC/router/gateway in 2012 will be Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco, Ericsson, Huawei, and Nokia Siemens Networks. In-Stat research says that Alcatel-Lucent will clearly dominate the LTE packet backhaul infrastructure space in Central and Latin America in 2012, with Cisco and Ericsson assuming the 2nd and 3rd positions.
