3G drives femtocell market up 13% in 3Q12; Samsung #1 in revenue and shipments

LONDON, England, December 10, 2012-Market research firm Infonetics Research released excerpts from its 3rd quarter (3Q12) Femtocell Equipment market share and forecast report, which tracks femtocells by market segment, technology, and form factor.


"After a minor dip earlier in the year, healthy revenue growth has returned to the femtocell market, where we saw a second consecutive quarter of increases," notes Richard Webb, directing analyst for microwave, mobile offload, and mobile broadband devices at Infonetics Research. "All segments-consumer, enterprise, and public access-saw both units and revenue go up, and we remain optimistic that femtocells have sufficient market drivers and support among operators to sustain continuous annual growth through 2016."

Webb adds: "Many new product types have launched recently, including the data-only femto from Contela, in-flight femtos from ip.access, the dual-mode 3G/LTE consumer femto from Fujitsu, and the 3G/4G/WiFi enterprise femto from SpiderCloud, and this innovation is driving new models and market opportunities."


  • The global femtocell market, including 2G, 3G, and 4G femtocells, grew 13.5% sequentially in 3Q12, to $132.7 million
  • Sales of 3G femtocells were up 50% in 3Q12
  • Samsung grew revenue 45% in 3Q12 from 2Q12, seizing the femtocell market share lead for the 1st time since 4Q11; Samsung also led in units shipped
  • Meanwhile, following a double-digit sequential decline in revenue, Airvana slid into the #2 spot in the 3rd quarter
  • Integrated femtocells made up just 2% of units shipped in 3Q12, but Infonetics expects they will account for around 1/3 of total units by 2016
