This paper is devoted to the characterizations of the boundedness and nonemptiness of solution sets for set-valued vector equilibrium problems in reflexive Banach spaces, when both the mapping and the constraint set are perturbed by different parameters. By using the properties of recession cones, several equivalent characterizations are given for the set-valued vector equilibrium problems to have nonempty and bounded solution sets. As an application, the stability of solution set for the set-valued vector equilibrium problem in a reflexive Banach space is also given. The results presented in this paper generalize and extend some known results in Fan and Zhong (2008), He (2007), and Zhong and Huang (2010).
