DUBLIN – (BUSINESS WIRE) – November 5, 2021–

The “India Telecommunications Industry Report – 2021-2026” report was added to ResearchAndMarkets.comoffer.

This report provides revenue analysis and market forecast as well as statistics of India telecom industry including market size, 5 year forecast, market insight, major telecom trends, 5G and digital infrastructure.

Growing mobile phone penetration and the emerging adoption of fixed broadband among households will fuel future growth over the next five years.

Mobile subscriptions and fixed broadband subscribers will continue to drive growth in the telecommunications sector over the 2021-2026 period. More than 700 million people have become internet users in the past six years, and an additional 600 million internet users are expected to log on in the next six years by 2026.

Following the expansion of the market over the past 5 years, sustained revenue growth through 2026 is expected, despite the Covid-19 pandemic and the decreasing impact of the decline in traditional voice and SMS revenues.

Mobile subscriptions are growing faster than mobile service revenues, leading to a drop in ARPU after 3 years of intense competition with the market transition to 4G. With a market entry in late 2016, Jio rocked the mobile market from a standing start to becoming the largest mobile operator per subscriber and third in terms of revenue in just three years.

Reliance Jio’s launch strategy was to offer three months of free data and voice, and once this was in place, maintained the permanent free voice offering while charging a low price for mobile data (INR50 for 1 GB). This strategy is reminiscent of the classic Silicon Valley bet: spend money up front to acquire customers, then offset the volume due to a superior cost structure allowed by its 4G network only and the nature of the marginal costs that are close. zero technology.

The timing of Jio’s launch was perfect just when competitors had broken 4G networks. Competitors in the mobile network quickly struggled to compete and a massive wave of consolidation ensued.

The global telecoms market will experience further growth until 2026 after a marked decline between 2017 and 2018 due to mobile warfare.
