Taiwan, a newly industrialised Asian economy, has developed one of the more advanced telecommunications networks in the region. Increasing land and labour costs have forced Taiwan to concentrate on technology, and it is now a leading high-tech centre in Asia Pacific. Headed by what had been a runaway mobile sector which passed 100% penetration in 2002, and a strong fixed-line telephone sector with a penetration of 55%, the market continues to find new ways to grow. Taiwan has been progressive in its efforts to liberalise the telecommunications industry and to create a positive regulatory regime which has seen it undergo a series of network modernisation projects over the last decade or so. This report provides statistics on the Taiwan telecom market including operator market share, revenues and fixed-line forecasts to 2018. It also considers key areas of regulation in the Taiwan telecommunications industry.

Key Developments:

Taiwan's economy is set to out-perform that of South Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong over the next five years;
Chunghwa Telecom continues to dominate Taiwan's fixed-line sector;
mobile penetration continues to rise beyond 125% driven by 3G;

switchover from analogue to digital terrestrial TV completed in 2012;
4G licensing process commences with spectrum auction.
