Worldwide Telecommunications and Communications
Market Opportunities, Strategies, and Forecasts, 2005 to 2010

The worldwide telecommunications markets are set for extraordinary growth, doubling from $123 billion in 2004 to $282 billion by 2010. Communications represents opportunity for expansion of economies. The Internet based communications systems are vastly improving the efficiency of the supply chain for the largest 5000 companies worldwide.

The combination of voice, video, and data on a network makes people more efficient. More information can be communicated not in real time, but is available, as people need it. Messaging systems play a significant role in passing information asynchronously, just in time.

Underdeveloped countries use communications to achieve trading and exchange of goods. As people have portable communications devices, they want more things and can make an economy emerge where there was none before. A Siemens representative tells about putting a refrigerator size switch in a rural South African village and coming back 10 years later to find a thriving village with shops and civilization. When people were coming and going to the city of Johannesburg, they would carry goods in both directions, creating demand for more items. Trade went in both directions from the village to the city and from the city to the village.

The uncertainty in the telecommunications markets has been resolved. Digital, IP, Ethernet will replace all other protocols. The convergence of networks is to IP, the Internet, Ethernet. It works seamlessly, it is reliable, it is resilient, it is fast. Now the issue is how fast the TDM networks will be replaced with the new technology.

Wireless is everything. 3G base stations promise to coexist with WiMAX 802.16 base stations in metro environments.

Worldwide telecommunications and communications equipment market forecasts, shipments in dollars analysis indicate strong growth in very large existing markets. Markets at $197.6 billion in 2005 are anticipated to reach $446.9 billion by 2010.
