This 75-page report will give telecom managers around the world the information they need to develop winning and informed strategies to compete and survive in the increasingly challenging and complex telecom environment.

The report reviews the world telecom market and its trends, and includes brand new analysis and 5-year projections of revenues, number of subscribers, penetration and growth, region-by-region for the fixed, mobile, Internet and broadband sectors.

This report also gives you an insight on the world's top 20 operators, top 15 equipment vendors, as well as the top 20 countries in the fixed, mobile, Internet and broadband markets.

Some Key Findings:

  • Global telecom services revenue reached US$1.7 trillion in 2008, representing a 5,5% increase on 2007, and a significantly slowing of growth (which stood at 9.3% in 2007). Over the forecasted period to the end of 2013, growth is projected to slow to a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.8%.
  • The world's total number of fixed telephone subscribers reached 1.27 billion in 2008, representing a minimal growth of 0.6% over 2007 and a penetration rate of 19.2%. Global fixed customer growth drastically slowed from 2006 onwards and expansion found in Asia and the MEA failed to offset the erosion of fixed access in North America and Western Europe.
  • Middle East and Africa's mobile subscribers grew by 30.2% to 595 million in 2008, making it the fastest growing mobile region in the world. It will continue to be the fastest growing market after Asia over the next 5 years with a CAGR of 9.6%, nearly doubling its number of mobile subscribers to 937 million by the end of 2013.
  • China was by far the largest fixed market in Asia and the world in 2008 with 340.8 million subscribers, representing 55.4% of the region's fixed lines and 26.9% of the world's subscribers. Japan and India followed with 42.7 and 37.9 million lines respectively.
