Still on track
Still, this was not enough to derail the positive momentum that has characterized the RAN market over the past couple of years. Preliminary estimates suggest that the overall 2G-5G RAN infrastructure equipment market recorded a seventh consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth in the third quarter.
“The RAN market remains on track for a fourth consecutive year of robust growth, underpinned by healthy demand for connectivity,” said Stefan Pongratz, analyst with the Dell’Oro Group. “At the same time, more challenging comparisons combined with increased risks surrounding the supply chain will weigh on the market in 2022,” he continued.
