Ericsson, Nokia lose infrastructure market share while Huawei continues to grow

Huawei has been named as the biggest telecom equipment maker of 2017, beating Ericsson, Nokia, ZTE and Samsung.

Stephane Teral 200 x 200According to the Mobile Infrastructure Market Tracker survey by research company IHS Markit, Huawei beat out Ericsson for the top spot due to the Swedish vendor struggling to find networking deals in several markets.

“Despite relative stability in North America and slight pickup in Japan, mobile infrastructure revenue declined in 2017 in all regions, and even more so in China,” said Stephane Teral, executive director of mobile infrastructure and carrier economics research at IHS Markit.

In addition, the report found that Huawei was the only equipment vendor to gain share in the mobile infrastructure market in 2017, increasing from 25% to 28%.

Ericsson’s global mobile infrastructure equipment share dropped from 28% in 2016 to 27% in 2017. But due to a series of recent announcements, the industry predicts that Ericsson will make strong comeback either this year or by 2019.

Similarly Nokia’s mobile infrastructure share fell from 24% to 23% year-on-year. Although no reason for this drop was given in the report, Nokia has recently begun changing its top management team in an attempt to secure more deals.

ZTE currently holds a 13% share of the global mobile infrastructure market, despite its tumultuous relationship with the US telecom market. And Samsung has 3% share of the mobile infrastructure market.

I posted it to emphasize that the US is not really a player in 5G networks.

The US is a designer of handset chips and handsets that are made in the Far East.
