Indian telecom sector will grow to $100 bn by 2015


According to the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), India’s telecom sector will witness an infusion of up to Rs 2500 billion in investments and the market will cross the Rs 4500 billion or US$ 100 billion mark in five years.

BCG has studied a wider circle of linked markets like digital advertising, handsets, TV distribution, TV sets, mobile data services, wireless, laptops, PCs and wired voice services while arriving at the forecast.

The current size of the market is around Rs 3000 billion, but a host of factors like intense competition and the ensuing decline in ARPUs (average revenue per user) have raised questions over the sector.

The key factors that will fuel the growth will be increased access to services thanks to the launch of newer telecom technologies like 3G and BWA, better devices, changing consumer behaviour and the emergence of cloud technologies.
