The latest study, “The China Mobile Market” published
by business information providers, visiongain, investigates the
high growth of mobile and Internet users in China, which began in
the second half of 1990s. Since then, the mobile market in China
has become fiercer, with competition amongst mobile operators to
control the entire value chain from contents and application through

operators: China Mobile, China Unicom, China Telecom and China Netcom,

of 2005, rising to 580 million by the end of 2010", comments

a penetration rate of 25.7%, the mobile market in China is far from
saturation levels. However, mobile operators in the mainland are
faced with decreasing ARPU rates. Their approach to develop policies
to address this issue, analysed in this report, is likely to result
in consistent profit growth in China in future.
aspects related to technology standards, in the event of launch
of 3G services in the country, have been analysed including visiongain’s
related to the much-anticipated third generation service. The report
provides in depth analysis and predictions on the three possible
standards likely to be deployed for 3G-service delivery in China.
Visiongain believes that if mobile operators and handset vendors
play their cards right with respect to pricing, marketing and distribution
strategies, especially in targeting the niche market areas and nascent
consumer market, China could see over
580 million mobile subscribers by 2010, with a significant proportion
using 3G enabled handsets.
The study establishes
the potential China has to offer as a handset manufacturing hub
and the significance of mobile data services in the consumer and
markets. The role of foreign and domestic handset vendors in China,
highlights of key strategies, which they could employ, to better
compete with each other, is also included.
Critical issues such as take off of 3G services, performance of
GSM1x networks and international participation will bear significant
impact on the performance of mobile companies operating in China.
