US telecoms market to reach $443 billion by 2016

25 October 2011 |


According to Pyramid Research, the US telecoms market generated $367 billion in service revenue in 2010, highlighting a year-on-year increase of 3.1%.

The analyst firm has attributed the growth in the US market to an increase in mobile broadband, pay-TV and fixed broadband. This, it says, will offset the declining fixed circuit-switched market.

Looking ahead, Pyramid Research has forecasted that the market will continue to grow at a 3.1% CAGR between 2011 and 2016, eventually reaching $443 billion. Mobile data is expected to be the largest contributor to this growth, with a projected 12.7% CAGR between 2011 and 2016.

The continued adoption of smartphones as well as a growth in the M2M market is expected to help drive mobile data. The development of LTE will also help mobile networks support the growth.
