Global Internet Service Providers - Industry Market Research Report

Global Internet Service Providers

The global telecommunications sector is a bastion of global growth. The Global Internet Service Providers (ISPs) industry, however, has had its demand siphoned by operators in wireless telecommunications, truncating revenue growth to an extent. Expansion is being propelled by rapid advancements in digital infrastructure and services, particularly in developing economies where internet penetration remains low. The emergence of a plethora of powerful personal and business internet applications has transformed how businesses and consumers operate. Over the next five years, the internet will become an even greater part of the daily lives of consumers and commercial operations of businesses. Broadband subscribership, a key driver of industry performance over the past five years, will continue to propel the industry forward as more households and businesses purchase or upgrade internet services.

Industry operators provide internet access via wired networks. Some internet service providers (ISPs) offer extra services such as web hosting, web page designing and connectivity consulting. ISPs may provide local or national coverage to retail clients and deliver backbone services to other ISPs. This industry excludes wireless internet services provided by wireless carriers (see IBISWorld report I5111-GL Global Wireless Telecommunications Carriers).

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
