Current and Future Trends of Telecom Sector in India

Telecom is one of the fastest-growing industries in India. Today, India stands as the second-largest telecommunications market in the world. The mobile phone industry in India would contribute US$ 400 billion in terms of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the country in 2014.This sector, which is growing exponentially, is expected to generate about 4.1 million additional jobs by 2020, as per Groupe Speciale Mobile Association (GSMA).

Data traffic powered by third generation (3G) services grew at 146 per cent in India during 2013, higher than the global average that saw usage double, according to an MBit Index study by Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN). This great leap in both number of consumers as well as revenues from telecom services has not only provided sufficient contribution in Indian GDP growth but also provided much needed employment to the Indian youth.
