Traditional tower and small smell projects to continue rise
Analysts suggest a 3.74% CAGR for total towers in the region from 2021 to 2031. While they project small cells to grow at 5.86% CAGR from 2021 to 2031, that pace will not be enough to close the gap with traditional towers, which we expect to grow at 2.31% CAGR. They estimate about 5.4 million towers and small cells in Asia-Pacific as of year-end 2020, slightly up from 5.3 million in 2019. Roughly 3.5 million of these are traditional macro-cell towers, while the remaining 1.9 million are a mix of small cells and indoor or rooftop distributed antenna systems.
