New 3G-related mobile services will intensify competition among China’s three telecom providers.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 15, 2013
In the past decade, the mobile telecommunications industry in China has developed rapidly with strong growth in service subscribers. Services provided by the industry are increasing in scope and speed, replacing those provided by the Wired Telecommunication industry in China, says IBISWorld.
In the five years through 2013, revenue from the Mobile Telecommunications industry in China has been increasing at an annualized rate of 10.8%. In 2013, industry revenue is expected to reach $141.8 billion, and account for more than two-thirds revenue for the China's telecommunication sector, says IBISWorld.
The mobile telecommunications industry in China operates as an oligopoly. China's mobile communications market is dominated by three carriers, China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom, which have a joint market share of nearly 95.0%, says IBISWorld. These three companies employ more than 70.0% of employees in the industry and have subsidiaries or branches in virtually every city in China. Other firms are mainly value-added service providers, 90.0% of which are small or medium-sized enterprises.
Industry competition is expected to intensify with the growth of China Telecom and burgeoning 3G-related services. China Mobile and China Unicom will continue strengthening their positions in the market, while China Telecom will develop its own business to compete for market share, says IBISWorld.
