Asia Mobile Network Operators and MVNOs Markets, 2018: Asia’s Mobile Market Heads Further Towards Saturation as Developing Nations Grow Strongly - ResearchAndMarkets.com

October 4, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 4, 2018--The “Asia - Mobile Network Operators and MVNOs” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This market report provides a comprehensive overview of the mobile network operator and MVNO telecom market across the various economies of Asia. The list of operators ranges from the giant China Mobile with more than 860 million subscribers right through to a number of much smaller operators with only a few thousand subscribers each. And of course there are the mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs).

The telecom market across Asia has grown strongly over the past few years. The overall mobile penetration rate on average across the entire Asian region reached over 102% going into 2018, up from 83% back in 2012.

Whilst there are still developing markets continuing to grow their mobile subscriber base at moderate to high annual rates, there are in fact few countries left in Asia with significantly underdeveloped mobile markets and low mobile penetration rates.

The strong growth in the Asia market, is due to continued mobile subscriber growth in emerging markets including Bhutan, Laos, Indonesia, Nepal, North Korea, and in particular India. In contrast, developed and mature markets such as Japan, Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore have seen very low growth.

Total market growth will continue to ease off over the next five years as the remaining mobile markets now head toward saturation and their mobile subscriber growth rates decrease. This has occurred in the more mature markets such as Japan, Hong Kong, Macau and Singapore.

While domestic mobile operators account for the vast majority of all mobile operators across Asia, international mobile operators are highly active across this vast region. There are 16 international mobile network operators operating within the Asian region across 21 of the 34 Asian countries.
