Report Highlights

The growth in the telecom towers market can be attributed to the growing telecom sector as a whole. With the ever-growing population and its demand for connectivity, getting basic telecommunications and internet connectivity to the rural areas across the globe and improving the existing coverage areas led to the rise of telecom towers in the last two decades.

The Global Telecom Tower Market is valued at USD XX.XX billion in 2016 and is expected to reach a value of USD XX.XX billion by the end of 2022, growing at a projected CAGR of 25.2 % during the forecast period of 2017 - 2022.

International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the National Toxicology Program (NTP), and US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) specifies that the radiation from the telecom towers is far below the standard set and are non-carcinogenic. The exposure to the radio frequency from mobiles is more dangerous than those emitted from telecom towers. World Health Organization (WHO) also reassured the fact that RF from cellular towers is not harmful. There have been studies that prove and disprove this but since there is no conclusive evidence either way, health concerns remain a debatable topic and offers resistance to growth.

Telecom towers can be segmented by types (self-supporting, guyed masts, monopoles, telecom sheltered, concealed), by mount/installation (rooftop, ground-based, triangular, square, tubular, angular), by fuel used (renewable, non-renewable), by ownership (operator-owned, joint venture, private-owned) and by regions (North America, APAC, Europe, Middle-East & Africa).

Indus Towers, American Tower Corporation (ATC), IHS Towers, Helios Towers Africa, Eaton Towers, GTL Infra, Crown Castle International Corporation, T-mobile Towers, AT&T towers, Phoenix towers International and VimpelCom are some of the key players in this sector that are mentioned in the report.
