“Market conditions in the quarter were in many aspects positive, as healthy end-user fundamentals and positive 5G momentum outweighed downward risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Stefan Pongratz, Vice President at Dell’Oro Group. “While we continue to expect the worldwide market to grow at a healthy pace, regional risk profiles have changed with increase downward risks given the slowdown in the overall economy and upside risks prompted by potentially faster-than-expected 5G acceleration in China and Korea,” continued Pongratz.

Additional highlights from the 1Q 2020 RAN report:

5G NR comprised 20 percent to 40 percent of the overall RAN market.
Massive MIMO radio shipments increased four-fold YoY with total installed base eclipsing 60 M transceivers.
Indoor small cell growth slowed in the quarter – outlook remains favorable for full year 2020.
Huawei, Ericsson, Nokia, ZTE, and sansung accounted for more than 95 percent of the market.
Huawei’s total RAN share improved, reflecting Huawei’s growing position in China.
Smaller RAN players continued to benefit from the ongoing shift toward Open RAN.
