BMI View:

Our forecast maintains healthy growth in the Indian telecommunications market out to 2020 - driven by rising incomes, heavy infrastructure development and foreign investment in the sector. Currently, voice remains the main source of revenue but operators' strategy of migrating customers to higher-value 3G and 4G services will drive data consumption and market growth over the next decade. The Indian tower market is another key area of growth, as operators are increasingly offloading assets to third party tower companies in order to free up the capital needed to invest in spectrum and services. The upcoming spectrum auction towards the end of 2016 is expected to be the largest in the country's history and we expect that the major carriers will all look to aggressively invest in the 700MHz licenses, the most coveted band.
