Mobile Data and Subscribers to Grow Exponentially in India

Mobile Data and Subscribers to Grow Exponentially in India

A report by Mumbai-headquartered global analytical company CRISIL says that mobile data consumption in India grew 24 times in last five years, and is set to grow four-fold in the next five years through fiscal 2022, with data subscribers expected to double beyond 900 million and penetration reaching 80% from 40% at present.

Other key takeaways reported by Telecomtalk.info

  • Faster penetration will be supported by a continued drop in tariffs
  • Telcos will need to focus on increasing per-subscriber usage to bolster incremental revenues
  • The per subscriber usage will reach 2.3 GB per user by 2022
  • Rapid expansion in Wi-Fi infrastructure will cause a shift in data traffic to fixed lines after fiscal 2022
  • Videos contribute nearly 80% to total data traffic (direct and indirect) in India
  • Video viewership is dominated by regional languages – nearly 60% in Hindi and nearly 35% in other regional languages
  • Time spent on mobiles by Indians is already in line with evolved markets

The report added that India lacks in Wi-Fi hotspots, which is reflected in the time spent on surfing internet over Wi-Fi being a low 18% compared with 50% in the U.S. It suggested that “India needs to catch up significantly with close to 35,000 Wi-Fi hotspots.”
