India Telecommunications Report Q2 2015

BMI View: Despite the huge investment opportunities posed by the lack of adequate broadbandinfrastructure in metropolitan markets and basic services in rural areas, the Indian telecoms market ischallenging for new and established players alike. The fluid regulatory regime is open to highly variableinterpretation by the government, the regulators and the most influential businesses while the fragmentednature of the mobile and wireline markets - caused by the imposition of a regional licensing scheme - meansthat investment has largely targeted the most affluent areas of the country and bypassed large numbers ofrural consumers. In an effort to justify investment in mobile and broadband infrastructures, operators haveresorted to intense price competition to win and retain consumers. This is not sustainable over the longterm.

Key Data

By September 2014, the Indian mobile subscriber base rose to 927mn subscribers; we forecast 941.2mnsubscribers by the end of 2014 and 1.112bn by the end of our five year forecast period to 2019.

The deployment of 4G TD-LTE mobile broadband networks is well underway. Added to the ongoingrollout of 3G, there are considerable opportunities for operators to counter falling incomes from voiceand messaging, although we caution that the premium non-voice services market is still in its infancy.
