The global telecom towers market was valued at US$ 41.76 Billion in 2018, and is projected to reach US$ 75.5 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.2% over the forecast period, according to Global Telecom Towers Market Report, by Deployment Type (Shared Infrastructure Deployment and Owned Deployment), by Type of Tower (Lattice Tower, Guyed Tower, Monopole Tower, and Stealth Tower), by Installation (Rooftop and Ground-based), by Application (Communication, Radio, and Radar), and by Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa), published by Coherent Market Insights.
Telecom towers are designed to support antennas for telecommunications and broadcasting. These towers host a transceiver unit to maintain a connection between thousands of mobile phones and The Mobile Telephone Switching Office (MTSO). The antennas at telecom towers offer a wide range of multi-channel frequencies to thousands of cell phones in the network zone. Through a multi-channel frequency, a large number of mobile phones are connected in a single network. Furthermore, multi-channel frequencies offer better data transfer rates and connectivity.
