Titel / Title: An analysis of Factors Influencing the Telecommunication Industry Growth: A case study of China and India
Abstrakt Abstract:

The Telecommunications industry today is a key enabler of productivity across economies
and societies. The Telecom industry is not only a significant contributor towards the
economic activities of countries, but also towards the growth of other industries. In recent
times, developing nations have witnessed significant transformation within this sector due
to the impact it has had on their economies. The booming and emerging economies of China
and India have been impacted the most by the rapid growth of the Telecom industry in the
past decade. The aim of this thesis is to research the most influencing factors affecting the
Telecommunication industry growth, by analyzing data for both Chinese and Indian Telecom
In this report, data gathered from questionnaires, interviews, literature reviews and analysts’
reports are used to compare and discuss the contribution of different factors influencing the
Telecom industry. Data analysis methods such as Weighted Mean Calculations, for analyzing
the questionnaire data, and Granger Causality Test, for further co-relating data from the
questionnaire with the Telecom industry revenue figures, are used.
Factors such as “Number of Subscribers”, “Technology Innovation” and “Government
Regulation and Polices” were found to be the most influential and contributing factors
towards the growth of the Telecom industry in China and India. Analysis based on historical
statistics revealed that, there is no direct impact on the industrial revenue from the
“number of Subscribers” factor, unlike the “Technology Innovation” factor. Also, the
contribution of “Government Regulation and Polices” as a factor, seems to be more obvious
for the Chinese Telecom industry compared to that of India.
