Research and Markets: The Global Wireline Telecommunication Services Market Expected to Reach an Estimated US $673 Billion in 2017

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/pt457j/global_wireline) has announced the addition of the "Global Wireline Telecommunication Services Industry 2012-2017: Industry Trends, Profit and Forecast" report to their offering.

The global wireline telecommunication services market is expected to witness moderate growth over the forecast period of 2012-2017 and reach an estimated US $673 billion in 2017 with a CAGR of 2.2% over the next five years.

The wireline telecommunication industry consists of voice telephony and other non-voice information transmission using fixed lines rather than wireless systems. The services and products include voice, broadband video, and data and network access. The industry is consolidated in terms of both key players and suppliers. The European region currently dominates this market.

The wireline telecommunication services market witnessed slow growth during the last five years due to reduced usage and consumers' switchover to alternate technologies, such as wireless and VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). The Asia Pacific (APAC) region grew the fastest during the last five years, followed by Rest of the World (ROW) and North America. Advanced digital modulation technologies and fiber extensions to support next-generation data and video services were growth drivers. APAC is expected to witness strong subscriber growth due to increasing numbers of subscribers in China and India.

Declining demand for telephone lines and wireless technology are some of the challenges facing the industry. Technological improvements and liberalization of the international wireline telecommunications services and IP technology are likely to boost the wireline telecommunication industry.

This study provides an overview of the global wireline telecommunication services market. The report tracks two market segments for four regions; thus, it tracks eight segments of the global wireline telecommunication services market. The report is limited to wireline telecommunication services including landline, other information transmission through fixed lines including local and long-distance voice, switched access, IP, and Internet access.
