Taiwan market growth driven by network migrations to LTE and FTTx
A report from Pyramid Research has shown that all business sectors in Taiwan’s telecoms market, apart from fixed circuit-switched and dial-up internet, have shown healthy revenue growth over the past year.
The decline in service revenues from PSTN sectors came due to growing dependency on mobile devices and broadband connectivity, as well as regulatory-mandated cuts in tariffs.
Mobile voice is the largest revenue generator, with approximately 50% of the total market value and $6 billion collected. It is expected to be the main revenue generator over the next five years, but business size is forecast to shrink to $5.6 billion by 2016, as a result of declining effective call rates.
Data-based services are expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.3%, 16.3%, 6.6% and 3.5% over the forecast period, driving the market in a positive direction.
