Market Overview

Research and Markets: US Market for Wireless Telecom Carriers 2012 featuring AT&T Inc and Verizon Communications Inc


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "US Market for Wireless Telecom Carriers" report to their offering.

The wireless telecommunications carriers industry in the States has posted continual growth, with subscriber numbers on the rise in recent years. Consumers are becoming increasingly dependent on cell phones for voice and messaging services, leading to a surge in demand for wireless telecommunications carriers. Significant price competition is expected to play a major role in the industry's performance in the coming years.

The wireless telecom carriers industry in the US comprises of establishments primarily engaged in providing two-way radiotelephone communications services, such as cellular telephone services. It also includes companies that are engaged in providing telephone paging and beeper services and those engaged in leasing telephone lines or other methods of telephone transmission, such as optical fiber lines and microwave or satellite facilities, and reselling the use of such methods to others. With each passing year, and each new generation of products introduced in the marketplace, it's getting harder and harder to pigeonhole companies and their products into traditional categories like telecommunications, computer hardware, and consumer electronics.

Major players in the market are Verizon Wireless, AT&T Inc., Sprint Nextel Corporation, and Deutsche Telekom AG. During the five years to 2010, subscriber numbers increased by just over nine percent annually, driving industry revenue up at an average annualized rate of below five percent. Industry revenue growth has lagged behind subscriber growth because intense competition has caused prices to fall. The importance of wireless telecommunications to the everyday lives of Americans has pushed subscriber numbers to an estimated 293 million in 2010, or 93% of the population.

Recently, President Barack Obama has endorsed a wireless spectrum hike plan proposed by the FCC, which will nearly double the currently available spectrum for wireless broadband services. The FCC together with the U.S. Department of Commerce will identify unused airwaves to raise the available spectrum size to 500 MHz in the next 10 years.
