A new report by Mobile Experts predicts strong purchases of filter and tower-mounted amplifier products by North American mobile operators over the next five years. The overall market total will reach $260 M during 2011, with a step in future growth coming from rising LTE deployment.

The overall market size will continue to grow, despite some turbulent changes in the market, said Joe Madden, Principal Analyst at Mobile Experts. Small cells threaten the market for macrocell upgrades, but LTE deployment will be strong for macro networks. In addition, the rise of MIMO will greatly increase the quantity for filters, duplexers, combiners, and TMAs.
