APAC revenues from broadband and pay-TV to rise 34% by 2016

MUMBAI: Asia-Pacific telcos are forecast to see service revenues from DSL, fiber broadband and IPTV rise from$52.5 billion in 2010 to$79.5 billion in 2016 with significant revenue expected from fiber broadband and IPTV services, offset slightly by some declines in broadband DSL, a study says.

ABI Research‘s new study, "Pay TV and Broadband Markets in China, India, Japan and Asia-Pacific", also states that cable companies in the region will see revenues decline slightly, from$51 billion to$49.5 billion, with increases in cable broadband offsetting some loss of pay-TV revenue to telco-provided IPTV and satellite.

In sum, telcos will see revenue growth of 51 per cent while cable companies see a decline of revenues by 3 per cent.
Both India and China have significant regulation unfolding which will shift the balance of power between telcos and cable companies.

"India is discussing a broadband plan built around a national fiber optic network that has the potential to improve broadband penetration and other services-if the country can get past political and regulatory hurdles. China‘s Triple-Play Net Convergence initiative has already started to force the consolidation of provincial level cable operators to serve populations of approximately 20 million-up from small regional operators serving hundreds of thousands to a few million," asserted ABI Research senior analyst Sam Rosen.

ABI research practice director Jason Blackwell said, "Managers at international companies are all aware of the fabulous opportunities in Asia where population growth and economic growth meet, and the potential for technology adoption seems endless. At the same time, country-to-country variations and different business norms make understanding the opportunities, and engaging to win, very difficult."
