Telecommunications resellers are viewed as cost-effective distributors of network carriers' excess capacity. These companies service niche markets while diversifying the revenue stream of infrastructure owners. Resellers have gained opportunities in the wireless market as consumers increasingly shift demand away from fixed-line networks and towards mobile networks. However, a reluctance from network operators to wholesale 4G services, coupled with the decline in fixed-line connections, is forecast to result in industry revenue declining at a compound annual rate of 0.4% over the five years through 2015-16 to be worth $9.3 billion.
Telecommunications resellers primarily provide fixed, mobile and data telecommunications services through networks owned by third parties. Telecommunications resellers purchase network capacity from network providers and resell it via their own channels. The industry does not include resellers of internet access, which are part of the Internet Service Providers industry.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
