NEW YORK, Sept. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
New mobile and fixed technology roll-outs will be the main growth drivers, but automation and self-organised network (SON) features will enhance the value of NMS as a rich source of data and main control point, for the optimised operation of the network.
The worldwide network management systems (NMS) market is forecast to grow from USD4.6 billion in revenue in 2013 to USD5.6 billion in 2018, at a 3.9% CAGR, starting to recover from the 4% decline in 2012 and 2% growth in 2013. The NMS market is linked to equipment sales, and we expect LTE, small-cell and FTTx roll-outs to drive growth during the forecast period.
This report provides:
a detailed worldwide forecast for spending on NMS, split into:
four telecoms services:
four geographical regions (see below).
a summary of the key trends and factors impacting the NMS market between 2013 and 2018
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 providers (NEPs)
insight into the impact of emerging technologies and opportunities – such as LTE, SON, network function virtualisation (NFV), software-defined networking (SDN), customer experience management (CEM), M2M and new digital economy services – on the NMS market
an examination of the CSPs' business environment that drives NMS market growth.
This report is a companion to the previously published NEPs' network management systems: worldwide market shares 2013, which details the business conditions in this market, as well as the market shares, offerings and strategies of the major NEPs.
Forecasts are split into the following four regions:
Asia–Pacific (APAC)Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) Latin America (LATAM)North America (NA)
Table of contents

12.Recommendations for NEPs
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 modernise networks for 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

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
