As mobile devices proliferated throughout the United States, resellers focused their attention on wireless telecommunications, which is an increasingly competitive field due to growing demand for contract-free, prepaid wireless services and competitively priced mobile broadband. Customers are continuously seeking advanced technology, aggressive pricing, flexible billing and great customer service. However, wireless network operators are expected to resist giving resellers any sort of competitive advantage. Consequently, during the five years to 2015, industry revenue is expected to decrease. Over the five years to 2020, revenue is forecast to continue decreasing as innovative mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) that cater to niche markets with specialized services will struggle to compete on specialized services while major telecommunications companies continue to acquire resellers.
Companies in this industry purchase access and network capacity from operators of telecommunications networks and resell these services to businesses and households. Although operators that resell wired telecommunications services are included in the industry, companies that resell wireless services (mobile virtual network operators) account for the bulk of industry revenue. This industry does not include the resale of satellite telecommunications.
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.
