In the last 6 years, the global mobile telecoms industry has been shaped by the introduction of 4G LTE technology. This mobile technology has not only changed the way we communicate, but it has also affected our lives in many different ways from the type of media we watch to the amount of devices we buy. Due to this, the number of deployments and subscriptions of 4G have been booming in the last two years, Visiongain calculates that between 2012 and 2014 the number of 4G LTE subscriptions increased by almost five times, as the Chinese deployment of 4G radically changed the global market in 2014.

Visiongain expects that by 2015, 12.3% of 4G subscribers will be using LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) technology

However, LTE technology does not constitute 100% of all global 4G subscriptions; since 2013 there have been a number of networks launching LTE-Advanced especially in the APAC region. LTE-A consists of several improvements over standard LTE, but the main advancement is carrier aggregation (CA) which enables different frequencies to be combined and treated as one channel of bandwidth, delivering greater performance. This technology will allow network operators to cope with the dramatic increases in mobile data and to improve their mobile broadband coverage.

The increasing mobile video consumption, connected cars, cloud applications and IoT are expected to be some of the most important drivers behind 4G LTE-Advanced technology. It is expected to be deployed in most of the developed economies and the number of subscribers is expected to increase at a much faster rate than 4G LTE subscribers in the next five years. Japan and South Korea are the leaders in terms of 4G LTE and LTE-A subscribers, but in the next three years other countries such as China and the US will take the lead on this technology.

4G LTE subscriptions are expected to represent the great majority of 4G connections in the next five years. LTE is suitable for a wider market than LTE-A which is expected to be deployed massively in developed markets such as the US. Additionally, deploying and adopting LTE technology is expected to have lower costs for both operators and users, LTE service and mobile handsets costs are also expected to be cheaper than those for LTE-A. For instance, one of the most thriving 4G LTE markets is China, which in 2014 alone is expected to add almost 100 million LTE subscriptions.

Overall, Visiongain expects the number of global 4G subscriptions to increase dramatically between 2015 and 2020, taking over existing 2G and 3G markets. LTE will be connecting the majority of the devices and LTE-A will be thriving in highly developed markets such as Japan and South Korea.

This new report presents in-depth analysis of the fastest growing 4G markets, regions and countries based upon the latest information and expected changes in the global market, the most recent changes in regulations and the largest opportunities for deploying LTE-A networks.
