Global Wireless Telecommunications Carriers

Global Wireless Telecommunications Carriers

In the past five years, wireless communications have become essential to the day-to-day lives of the majority of the world's consumers, resulting in a surge in demand. The overwhelming majority of new wireless subscriptions over the period have emanated from emerging markets, particularly those of India, China and Africa. In contrast, markets in developed economies have reached saturation, preventing wireless carriers in these markets from achieving the subscriber growth rates of their counterparts in emerging economies, and instead leading them to focus on increasing per-user revenue. Industry growth is expected to continue in the next five years, as carriers complete fourth-generation network rollouts and benefit from booming demand for data services.

Companies in this industry operate and maintain switching and transmission facilities to provide direct communications via wireless radio transmission. Wireless services include cellular voice telephony services, messaging services, broadband data services and mobile backhaul services (i.e. transferring data from small subnetworks to a network core). Carriers may also retail mobile handsets and related equipment to consumers. The industry does not include mobile virtual network operators.

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.
