Delhi, New Delhi, India, 2008/05/22 - With completion of its standardization, global Wi-MAX market is observing rapid growth in its subscriber base, with Asia-Pacific expected to emerge as the largest subscriber base by 2010, says RNCOS.
A new market research report, “Global WiMAX Market Analysis”, by the leading market research firm RNCOS, says due to the completion of WiMAX standardization, a rapid growth is being witnessed in the WiMAX market globally over the past year. With this, the number of WiMAX subscribers worldwide is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 102.75% from 2007 to 2010.
According to the report, North America is likely to have more subscribers in comparison to other regions in the early phase of the forecasted period, while Asia-Pacific is expected to outnumber the WiMAX subscribers of North America by the end of the period.
The RNCOS research cites the combination of WiMAX cellular services and WiMAX fixed services as important factor for the expansion of WiMAX subscribers in the Asia-Pacific region. WiMAX mobile services will extend their reach from South Korea to other developed economies like Japan and Australia, while fixed services will continue to see deployment in key developing countries like China and India.
Moreover, the RNCOS report identifies the unavailability of wired infrastructure for accessing Internet as a major growth driver for WiMAX in the Asia-Pacific region. Also, government support and initiatives undertaken by the service providers to provide Internet services in remote areas are playing significant role in the growth of WiMAX penetration in this region.
Thus, by 2012, Asia-Pacific is expected to have about 49% of the total subscriber base, making it the world’s largest WiMAX subscriber base, says the report.
Apart from subscribers in Asia-Pacific, the report also provides forecast on global subscriber base, WiMAX equipment & service revenue, WiMAX infrastructure spending, mobile broadband subscribers by technology, etc.
