Emerging markets of Mobile Virtual Network Operator

Press Release   •   Nov 16, 2010 10:13 IST

Global MVNO outlook: 2010–15

Global mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) connections are forecast to reach 85.6 million by 2015, and revenues are expected to be $9.5 billion. Over the next five years, new MVNO markets are expected to open up in South and Central America, Asia-Pacific, and in the Middle East. However, there are still regulatory and market challenges to overcome before these markets can offer an environment that can sustain MVNO activity. Therefore, we expect the bulk of MVNO connections and revenue growth from 2010–15 will come from established MVNO markets in Western Europe, Asia-Pacific, and North America. ( )
