IHS has predicted that the global LTE mobile infrastructure revenue will peak at $23.3 billion in 2015 and then start to decline as a result of diminishing rollouts.

"As we anticipated, we're reaching the peak of LTE rollouts, and LTE is now set to perform at $6 billion a quarter for some time as operators complete their major remaining rollouts," said Stephane Teral, research director for mobile infrastructure and carrier economics at IHS.

LTE revenue approached $6 billion worldwide in 1Q15, a one per cent sequential decline.

LTE rollouts were not strong enough in 1Q15 to fully offset the abyssal YoY decline of 2G/3G spending, resulting in an eight per cent sequential decline for the global 2G/3G/4G mobile infrastructure market, which came to $11 billion.

On a YoY basis, the 2G/3G/4G mobile infrastructure market was up four per cent in 1Q15, driven by unabated TDD LTE activity in China.
