NEW DELHI: In the first half of 2021, the demand for microwave transmission equipment grew 11% year-over-year driven by LTE and 5G as the market started recovering from the decline caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, said a new report by Dell’Oro Group.

During the same period, microwave revenue from mobile backhaul applications grew by 16%.

The top three vendors in the quarter continued to be Huawei, Ericsson, and Nokia, the report said.

Chinese telecoms gear maker Huawei regained “most” of its lost share in the microwave transmission equipment market in Q2 2021 and led over its Swedish rival Ericsson with a 10% point lead.

“Almost all of the vendors in this industry are benefiting from the improving mobile backhaul market, especially the top vendors. Since demand is rising, each vendor’s performance this year will come down to how well they navigate the supply issues created by the pandemic and semiconductor shortages,” said Jimmy Yu, Vice President at Dell’Oro Group.

All regions contributed to the positive market growth this quarter with the exception of Latin America that declined year-over-year for a ninth consecutive quarter.

E/V Band revenue growth remained positive for another consecutive quarter and held its double-digit year-over-year growth rate, the report said.
