June 13, 2001 The worldwide market for multi-tenant unit (MTU) broadband service and equipment is poised for strong growth over the next four years, thanks in large part to the geographic expansion and emergence of new players in non-U.S. markets. That information comes from Cahners In-Stat Group, a high-technology market-research firm. In its report "MTU Around the World: The International Deployment Potential," the research firm projects that the worldwide MTU market will grow from $1.2 billion this year to $9.8 billion in 2005.

Of note in the report: Asia represents a strong market because of the architectural and demographic characteristics of the region. Europe, characteristically a diverse market, will also represent a solid market potential for MTUs. And activity in Mexico suggests that Latin America will present opportunities previously unseen.

"For the last several years the MTU broadband market has built a foundation in U.S. markets, promoting the efficiency and economy of the in-building deployment model," says Amy Helland, an industry analyst with Cahners In-State. "Although the in-building model encountered barriers in its development, it has emerged as a solid deployment technique for delivering broadband to MTU structures."

The study says that most MTU solution providers that will emerge internationally will be service providers seeking to capitalize on the market opportunity for a wide range of broadband services.
