The market is expected to exceed $524 billion in 2015, representing a decrease of close to 5% in five years. In terms of volume, the worldwide fixed line telecoms market is expected to reach almost 944 thousand fixed line telephones, representing an 8% decrease over five years.

Voice only is the leading segment in the global fixed line telecommunications market, representing more than 57% of the overall market in terms of value.

Regional Market Share

MarketLine estimates the Americas accounts for more than 34% of the overall worldwide fixed line telecommunications market in terms of value.

The G8 nations (US, Canada, Germany, France, UK, Italy, Russia and Japan) are forecast to record slowed yearly growth of almost -2% between 2010 and 2015 to exceed $302 million. The US will dominate the fixed line telecoms market within the G8 countries, reaching close to $90 million in 2015, reports MarketLine.

The global fixed line telecoms market will see the advanced emerging market nations generate more than $63 billion in 2010, after yearly growth of 5% for the five preceding years, up from less than $50 billion in 2009. Yearly growth for these countries was just over 3% from 2005 to 2009, reports MarketLine.

Brazil accounted for more than 58% of the global fixed line telecommunications market in 2009. Within the advanced emerging market countries, Brazil is forecast to record the strongest growth to reach almost $42 billion in 2014.

Asia-Pacific contributed almost $186 billion to the global fixed line telecommunications market in 2010, according to research from MarketLine. This regional market recorded yearly growth of more than 1% for the four preceding years, and it expected to record slowed yearly growth of -0.4% between 2010 and 2015 to reach $182 billion in 2015.

Africa represents the market with the fastest rate of growth within the global fixed-line market, reports BuddeComm. Around 35% of countries on the African continent recorded double or triple digit growth in the fixed line telecommunications industry in 2010. Due to obstacles to the development of the fixed line sector, 90% of telephone subscribers in Africa in 2011 were mobile users.

The potential for market growth in the limited-mobility or lower-cost fixed services is vast. Broadband internet demand is fuelling development of the fixed line telecommunications sector, though obstacles such as copper theft and vandalism are still proving such a challenge that market players are opting for fixed-wireless solutions over fixed lines to provide data and voice services. More than 50 operators rely on CDMA-2000 technology to provide fixed-wireless access.

Many African nations witnessed the introduction of international submarine fiber optic cables as late as 2009 and 2010. More cables are forecast to go online throughout 2012, boosting supply and providing cheaper international bandwidth. Several nations are developing national fiber backbone networks to cater to consumers outside of capital cities. Companies will also continue to take advantage of satellite services to reach remote and rural regions.
