This report provides an outlook on the telecoms and ICT services market in China for micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) and large enterprises. It contains forecasts for fixed and mobile voice and data network services, as well as ICT services such as security, co-location, and hosting, unified communications and cloud services.

This report analyses the demand for telecoms services by micro, small and medium-sized enterprises and large enterprises, expressed in terms of revenue, the number of connections or users and average revenue per user (ARPU).

The report highlights that the analyst expects steady revenue growth in the business market as rising revenue from mobile data, IoT and ICT  outpaces the decline in legacy voice.

It quantifies the market for fixed and mobile voice and data services, IoT connectivity services and ICT services such as unified communications (UC) and hosted voice, security, colocation and hosting and cloud services.

The report is based on several sources, including operator reporting, the 2019 survey on business telecoms and ICT usage, third-party reports and statistics from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT). The analyst has not assumed a significant negative impact arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.

This report contains:

  • forecasts for operator services to MSMEs and large enterprises including fixed and mobile voice and data services, IoT connectivity services and ICT services such as security, co-location, and hosting, unified communications and cloud services
