The Wired Telecommunications industry is part of the telecommunication services sector. In terms of revenue, it is the second-largest industry within the sector, after the Mobile Telecommunications industry (IBISWorld report 6012). However, its share of total industry revenue has been declining since the early 2000s with much more rapid development of mobile telecommunications and the expansion of the third-generation (3G) as well as fourth-generation (4G) network in China.
The substitution of fixed-line or landline telecommunications with mobile telecommunications in China will continue in future years.
The Wired Telecommunications industry in China comprises establishments providing voice, data, image, multimedia and information services through fixed-line telephone networks. Telecommunication services provided by dedicated telephone networks within some specialized industries and institutions, such as power generation, police, oil, aviation and railways, are not included in this industry. In addition, this industry does not include content providers of value-added services.
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.
