The dynamic Indian telecommunications market has one particularly compelling feature – the large number of significant operators. As the market constantly adjusts to the changing pressures and demands, takeovers and mergers ensure that some level of equilibrium is maintained. In the meantime, we have seen significant shifts in market share among the players. Of course it is the country’s booming mobile segment in which the major battles are being fought. Three major private players – Bharti, Reliance and Vodafone - with a formidable 58% share of the market between them coming into 2015 - lead a large field of mobile operators. State-owned enterprises –BSNL and MTNL – had also been making their presence felt with a combined market share of 12%. However, BSNL and MTNL have major financial issues to address, and by early 2015, there market share had dropped to 9%. Although the fixed-line telephony market in India has seen little growth of late (and is in fact shrinking), it remains an important segment of the overall market; the two state-owned operators still deliver the overwhelming majority of fixed-line services.
