Delhi, India (PressExposure) April 09, 2008 -- With developing India and its mobile market, RNCOS' added a report on the emerging rural mobile market of India in its report gallery. The report titled "Emerging Rural Mobile Market in India" provides extensive research on the growing marketplace for mobile industry in rural India. The report provides detailed analysis on the rural India mobile industry, its current performance and the future prospects.
The study looks at how new mobility could be used to bridge the growing economic and social divide between rural and urban areas. This report helps clients to have an insight into the mobile industry in rural India, giving its forecasted future size including subscribers' growth, handset sales, market share, market penetration, opportunities, and roadblocks.
India's telecommunication sector is witnessing an explosive growth, as falling tariffs and rising incomes are bringing mobile phones within the reach of millions of new customers. Mobile industry players are eyeing rural India as their new area of opportunity. The companies are getting a boost with the fact that the mobile users are expected to cross 230 Million by 2007 end and 500 Million by 2010 with an addition of about 5 to 6 Million subscribers every month. Cellular service providers seem to be answering the call of the wild as they are entering the so far ignored rural market. Although a huge market in the urban segment remains tapped, most of the cellular operators have turned towards Rural India to broaden their base and reach. So the real growth is expected from this geography in near future.
The low population density in rural areas has necessitated more towers of higher altitudes raising the costs further. Language is another problem and there are many dialects that had no alphabet in rural India. To meet these challenges, operators must come up with solutions like simplifying product access, offering customer centric solutions (like songs, music, hello tunes that are popular), and infrastructure sharing.
