Complete Guide to the Telecommunications Industry From Plunkett Research 2018

HOUSTON, Texas – Plunkett Research, Ltd. recently announced an important market research and competitive analysis report, Telecommunications Industry Almanac, 2018 edition. A complete market research report, including forecasts and market estimates, technologies analysis and developments at innovative firms.

No other industry touches as many technology-related business sectors as telecommunications, which encompasses not only the traditional areas of local and long-distance telephone service, but also advanced technology-based services including wireless communications, the Internet, fiber-optics and satellites. Telecom is also deeply intertwined with entertainment of all types as cable TV systems aggressively offering local telephone service and high-speed Internet access. Competing directly against cable, traditional telecommunications firms are now selling television via the Internet.

Consequently, the various organizations that monitor the global telecommunications industry have their own ways of estimating total revenues, and their own thoughts on including, or not including, specific business sectors. Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) is a term that is used to help describe the relationship between the myriad types of goods, services and networks that make up the global information and telecommunications system. Sectors involved in ICT include landlines, private networks, the Internet, wireless communications, (including cellular and remote wireless sensors) and satellites. Globally, in the broadest possible sense (based on ICT), the telecommunications industry is expected to grow to about a $6.5 trillion sector in 2018.
