Indian telecom services market is experiencing burgeoning growth. The market has experienced exponential growth in the past decade. Telecommunications is one of the prime support services needed for rapid growth and modernization of various sectors of the economy. The favourable policies and regulatory framework implemented by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has created immense potential for service providers.

Market Analysis

The Indian Telecom Services Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.3% during the forecast period 2015–2020, mainly driven by the wireless services. Increasing network coverage and decreasing tariff rates have been the potential growth drivers in the market. The wireless services segment is expected to drive the telecom services market. The BFSI and Government sectors are the major revenue generating verticals but it is expected that the Retail segment will be capturing a larger share of the market by 2020.

The emergence of 4th generation technology will be one of the key trends in the market. In India, few telecom service providers have launched the 4th generation technologies, but penetration of these technologies is low. It will take a few more years to create the mass market for such technologies as most of the service providers are still focusing on 2G and 3G technologies. However, with the new upcoming technologies, the market will face the challenge of upscaling in infrastructure terms.
