Internet Service Providers in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Internet Service Providers in the US

Increasing use of the internet has significantly benefited the Internet Service Providers industry in the United States. Current regulatory overhaul is expected to drive government-subsidized network expansion and increase the number of US broadband connections, further driving industry revenue growth. A push toward broadband expansion in rural markets, as well as a rise in demand from the business segment, will boost industry revenue over the five years to 2018. In recent years, consumers have progressively viewed the internet as a necessity rather than a luxury, a perception that is set to become more widespread over the five years to 2023. Demand for internet services is expected to increase across all markets and regions, and industry revenue is forecast to grow

Internet service providers (ISPs) use wired infrastructure to provide clients with internet access and related services such as web hosting, web page designing and hardware or software consulting related to internet connectivity. Operators (except telecommunications carriers) may also lease out capacity on their networks to support the network infrastructure of other companies (i.e. backbone services). This industry excludes wireless internet and VoIP services.

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.
