Global telecom outsourcing market: $76 billion industry by 2016

Press Release   •   Feb 18, 2013 10:09 GMT

The global telecom outsourcing market is expected to reach a total value of around $76 billion by the year 2016, and will grow at a CAGR of 4% between 2012 and 2016. The main growth driver in the global telecom outsourcing market will be carriers' desire to reduce their operating expenses and CapEx. The main players in this industry include Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson and Huawei.

A trend that began about a decade ago for telecommunications network operators has accelerated in recent years. This trend, to outsource infrastructure as well as certain operational support to third party managed communications providers, is reaching a next stage in evolution. Historically, telecom operators have looked to service bureau providers for intermediation services, database services, and various OSS/BSS support. The more recent trend has been to outsource infrastructure as a service as a means of reducing Capital Expenditure (CapEx) and to use as negotiation leverage for improved pricing on next generation networks such as IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) and LTE infrastructure such as Voice over LTE (VoLTE).

The next stage in evolution is to outsource value-added services including content, commerce, and next generation communication services. This is a key development as network operators are poised to lose revenue and margins both do to marginalization of bearer services (voice and data both) and the need for value-added service (VAS) applications.
