Chinese vendors, especially Huawei, are likely to keep gaining share over the next few years, according to Credit Suisse. The report forecast Chinese manufacturers growing from 32 percent of the market now to 42 percent in three years. But deeper success in the U.S. and Western Europe may be hard for those vendors to achieve, the report said. Meanwhile, Ericsson, already the biggest mobile infrastructure leader with 36 percent of the world market, is likely to grow to 40 percent in the coming years, Credit Suisse said. This is partly due to the company's early lead in winning LTE (Long-Term Evolution) contracts, the report said.
