DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 19, 2019--

This report presents key aspects of the China telecom market as it enters 2019. It includes an overview of the regulatory environment, market highlights and comprehensive statistics.

The Chinese telecom market is the largest in the world in terms of subscribers and is undergoing transition. China's telecommunications development has generally been driven by investments from government-allied entities and features a strong industrial policy.

As the market approaches saturation, there has been a shift of emphasis in China's broadband policy from infrastructure build-up and service provision to application creation and user demand stimulation.

China's fixed-line market is in decline due to voice to mobile substitution. Fixed line penetration has dropped significantly over the past five years. This trend is predicted to continue over the next five years to 2023 driven by the growing adoption of mobile broadband.

In early 2018 the Chinese government updated its list of sensitive sectors' for outbound investment, removing telecoms operations from the list.

China is projected to lead spending on Internet of Things technologies in the Asia Pacific, driven by the agriculture and healthcare sectors.
