Key Highlights
Growing PC penetration will increase demand for broadband
Increased adoption of personal computers resulting in enhanced demand for broadband is expected to drive internet accounts growth, which will offset the decline in voice telephony subscriber lines. Internet accounts increased at 13.0% CAGR during 2012-2016 from 189.2 million in 2012 to 308.2 million in 2016, with expectations to grow at 9.6% CAGR over 2016-2021 to reach 486.5 million by 2021. Voice telephony subscriber lines declined at a -0.8% CAGR during 2012-2016, from 255.8 million in 2012 to 247.6 million in 2016, yet are expected to grow at 6.4% CAGR over 2016-2021 to reach 364.4 million by 2021

China Mobile topped in mobile services revenues
China Mobile’s revenue increased at 5.5% CAGR during 2012-2016, from US$84,790 million in 2012 to US$105,129 million in 2016. Similar to its leading position in mobile subscriptions, the company also led the market for mobile services revenue over the last four years, followed by China Unicom.

Low competitiveness leading to high churn
Although China’s telecom industry reported a decline in churn rates in 2016, it still lags behind other markets in Asia Pacific. China mobile churn stood at an estimated 35.7% in 2016, which is substantially higher than Japan, New Zealand, South Korea and Singapore. For instance, the mobile churn for these countries stood at 10.3%, 21.9%, 20.8% and 18.7% in 2016, respectively. The higher churn indicates a low competitive position in the region.
