Telecommunications equipment manufacturers (TEMs) are responsible for manufacturing the hardware, devices, and equipment the telecommunications industry relies on to stay in business. Needless to say, it’s a highly competitive industry that includes companies providing telephone, cable, and data services.

AdobeStock 63924573According to a report from First Research, American telecommunications equipment manufacturers generate approximately $36-38 billion annually in combined revenue. Recent research puts the overall yearly global price tag for telecommunications equipment at somewhere in the vicinity of $345 billion. Much of the growth in the industry is being fueled by the buildout of high-speed networks such as 5G. In addition, in the U.S. market, changes and upgrades from traditional telephone networks to Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), as well as television and cable providers switching to HDTV, are keeping equipment manufacturers very busy.
