Telecom Equipment: A Global Outlook
San Jose, California (PRWEB) February 14, 2012
Follow us on LinkedIn – Today, telecommunications has become an invaluable tool for both commercial as well as personal use. The industry has come to be known as a significant sector across world economies due to its significant contribution to the socio-economic development. Developing markets such as Asia-Pacific and Latin America present tremendous opportunities for mobile communications sector in the short to medium term period, given the huge investments the markets have been witnessing in developing their mobile communications infrastructure. Like many other industries, during the 2008-09 period, the global telecom industry was hit by the recessionary storm, forcing many companies to reduce their budgetary outlays and critically re-evaluate their network operations and infrastructure. The depressed economic climate even took a toll on customers, as due to shortage of disposable income, many postponed their purchases of various telecommunication services and products, such as mobile phones. However, with world economy entering the recovery mode in 2010, expenditure on both the business and the customer fronts revived significantly.
The industry is now traversing the path of growth, owing to the launch of 3G networks in many countries globally and the rising penetration of mobile phones (including smartphones) particularly in the developing regions such as Asia-Pacific and Latin America. With rising affordability, customers are shifting from wireline to wireless services and are increasingly adopting the latest technologies available in the market. Consequently the demand for 3G and wireless broadband and mobile services is rising at a robust rate in many underpenetrated markets of the telecommunications industry. With such promising trends in the overall telecom industry, the worldwide telecom equipment industry is witnessing a positive climate characterized by new opportunities for expansion. Although the wireline voice segment is following a downward trend, the increasing growth of broadband, Internet, VAS (value added services) and cloud computing services that is straining networks and forcing operators to make big time investments, is spurring demand for a wide range of telecom equipment. In addition, triple-play’ services, comprising the convergence of Internet, phone and television signal on a single wire, is also paving the path for plentiful gains in the telecom equipment sector worldwide.
The global telecom equipment market is expected to be driven by the increasing transition from copper wire to fiber optics, particularly in the broadband segment and the deployment of LTE (Long Term Evolution) networks in many developing markets of the world. Asia-Pacific is expected to maintain its position as the leading market in the telecom equipment industry through 2015, accounting for the highest capital expenditure, mainly driven by the rapid migration from 2G to 3G and rising LTE penetration.
