NEMs' Network Management Systems: Worldwide Forecast 2013-2017
Published: June 28, 2013 Content info: PPT and PDF (51 pages)


CEM solutions are unlocking the potential of network management system data, but new fixed and mobile technology roll-outs continue to be the main growth driver.


The worldwide network management systems (NMS) market is forecast to grow from USD4.5 billion in revenue in 2012 to USD5.9 billion in 2017, at a 5.8% CAGR. The NMS market is linked to equipment sales, and we expect LTE, small-cell and FTTx roll-outs to increase during the forecast period, leading to heterogeneous network (HetNet) environments.

This Report provides:

  • a detailed worldwide forecast for spending on NMS, split into:
    • four telecoms services (mobile, PSTN, business and residential broadband)
    • four geographical regions (see below).
  • a summary of the key trends and factors impacting the NMS market between 2012 and 2017
  • an examination of the key market drivers and inhibitors for the NMS market during the next 5 years
  • recommendations for communications service providers (CSPs) and network equipment manufacturers (NEMs)
  • insight into the impact of emerging technologies and opportunities - such as LTE, SON, NFV, SDN, CEM, M2M and new digital economy services - on the NMS market
  • an examination of end-user behaviour as it relates to this market.

Geographical coverage

Forecasts are split into the following four regions:

  • Asia-Pacific (APAC)
  • Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA)
  • Latin America (LATAM)
  • North America (NA).

  • 6.Worldwide NMS forecast, 2013-2017: new technologies will inject growth into, as well as limit growth in, this very mature OSS market
  • 7.Macro trends in 2012: Greenfield deployments are underway in MEA, but most ICT spend remained in China, Japan, Western Europe and the USA
  • 8.Fixed and mobile broadband technologies and services will drive market growth in mobile, business services and residential broadband NMS
  • 9.Growth will pick up in EMEA because of investments in LTE infrastructure, small-cell deployments and FTTx by CSPs in Western Europe
  • 10.Recommendations

  • 12.Recommendations for NEMs
  • 13.Forecast
  • 14.HetNets (LTE and small-cell deployments) will be the main driver for continued growth in the mobile NMS market
  • 15.Growth will return to EMEA as more CSPs in Western Europe launch LTE, while investment in developed APAC will decline
  • 16.Business services NMS growth will be slow until 2015, as CSPs make use of their abundant existing capacity
  • 17.APAC will register a short-term decline in business services spend while CSPs consume their surplus capacity
  • 18.Video, new digital services and HetNets will be the key market drivers for residential broadband NMS, while NBN investments decelerate
  • 19.Optical NGA investments continue to drive the overall growth in residential broadband NMS in emerging and mature markets
  • 20.PSTN NMS maintenance spend is plateauing because CSPs are doing most of the maintenance in-house to reduce spending even further
  • 21.LATAM will continue to have the slowest decline in PSTN NMS spending
