This IDC study presents IDC's forecast and analysis of the mobile equipment capex spending in India, People's Republic of China (the PRC), and South Korea. Spending in the combined three markets on mobile capex will decline slightly from US$26 billion in 2012 to US$25.29 billion in 2016, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -0.8%.

"With smartphone penetration projected to reach 97% in Korea, 63% in the PRC, and 31% in India by 2016, mobile network operators are under pressure to exhaust all means possible to provide scalable, mobile data capacity while at the same time, improving their business model. Virtually all aspects of the network from spectrum refarming, upgrades of modulation, and multiple-bands on radio basestations, as well as introducing multiple input multiple output (MIMO) and antenna diversity to mobile backhaul to packet core to OSS/BSS will all need to be upgraded and modernized in order to utilize new monetization and optimization technologies such as real-time analytics, bid data analytics, and behavioral analytics. Mobile network operators (MNOs) in these markets are continuing to innovate in terms of content delivery, app store fronts, m-commerce, and micropayment systems", says Bill Rojas, research director, Telecom, IDC Asia/Pacific.
