London, United Kingdom, 2008/01/16 - Report Buyer, the online destination for business intelligence for major industry sectors, has added a new report which finds that the 3G (third generation) worldwide mobile market had a customer base of over 400 million in 2006.
“3G Market Outlook (2007-2010)” reports that out of all the fast growing 3G markets, Asia-Pacific is surfacing as the most promising one due to advanced 3G markets like Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Australia. Additionally, emerging markets like India and China are expected to contribute to the growing base in the region, post-2008.
The report finds that in 2006, Asia-Pacific had around 50% of the global 3G subscribers. It predicts, however, that the 3G revolution is yet to come in the Asia-Pacific region.
Authors of the report say that there are several reasons to believe that the boom in the 3G market is impending. Analysis shows that Japan and South Korea are currently the leading 3G markets in the region. Soon, China, which is still striving to make its place on the 3G map, will emerge as the big market, thanks to its 2008 Beijing Olympics, states the report.
The study discusses the technology used in China as 3G standard in detail and also outlines the various measures being undertaken by the Chinese government and telecom operators to roll out the 3G service in the country as a preparation for the Beijing Olympics.
According to analysts in the industry, India too will add significantly to the subscriber base of Asia-Pacific region. The country is bolstering its efforts to launch the trials of this super-fast technology, highlights the report. The report predicts that going by the pace of development, India might launch its 3G networks before China but it will take some time to reach the masses.
The study comprehensively reviews the 3G market by technology, subscribers, and individual countries. It highlights the driving forces and roadblocks for the widespread expansion of 3G globally and predicts global industry 3G market trends by technology, handset shipment and subscribers.
