The global WiMAX (News - Alert) equipment market will grow to $6.9 billion in 2014. Investment in unlicensed WiMAX spectrum will be one of the key factors contributing to this market growth, according to market intelligence firm Infiniti Research 's report “Global WiMAX Equipment Market 2010-2014.”

The WiMAX equipment market is experiencing fast evolution of several WiMAX technologies. However, the high cost of WiMAX equipment could be a challenge to the growth of this market, according to the Infiniti report.

The report tried to address the market size in 2014 and growth rate, key trends, market drivers, challenging in the marketplace, opportunities for key vendors, and the strengths and weaknesses of each of these key vendors.

Recently, Infonetics Research, an independent research firm, announced that the WiMAX market will continue to defy the TD-LTE (News - Alert) doomsayers with the revenue growing.
