We are includin a detailed analysis from a regional perspective to better frame the thesis of our current outlook for the market as well as possible new drivers for demand.

2016 Review: Preparing for 4.5G/4.9G
China was still the market to be in for 2016 as it represented xx% of overall global RRU/ARS shipments. This meant that Chinese-based suppliers Datang, Huawei Technologies, and ZTE were able to capitalize on their domestic market with foreign suppliers limited to 5-10% market share.

China shipments were down xx% in 2016 compared with 2015 as TDD demand softens from China Mobile and lower CAPEX spending from all three mobile operators in China.

Demand in the North America was strong due to 700MHz deployments as well as refarming of 850MHz and 1900MHz spectrum.

LTE deployments in Asia Pacific also drove demand across SE Asia. India shipments increased by xx% as Reliance Jio completed its network roll out to launch commercial services.

Oil-based countries that in the past were able to fund network large projects were weak in CAPEX spending such as Russia and Nigeria. We believe that mobile operators upgraded their RRUs in anticipation of supporting 4.5G network launches in 2017 and beyond.

The top suppliers by overall RRU/ARS shipments as well as for LTE technologies for 2016 were:
Overall #1 RRU/ARS Supplier: Vendor X
Overall #1 LTE RRU/ARS Supplier: Vendor X
Overall #1 FDD-LTE RRU/ARS Supplier: Vendor X 
Overall #1 TDD-LTE RRU/ARS Supplier: Vendor X

Tier 1 (>20% Market Share)

Tier 2 (10-20% Market Share)

Tier 3 (<10% Market Share)
