A new report from benchmark-it (International Business-to-Business Services) finds that the global ICT services market is set for further consolidation as established players, new regional entrants and niche service providers compete for a finite set of customers.
Report author Rob Pritchard observes: “The increasing pressure from expanding service providers from the Asia Pacific region, mobile players and IT services providers means that too many suppliers are chasing a finite number of customers – something has to give.”
Acquisitions by the likes of Vodafone and NTT Com are seen as an early indicator of a renewed consolidation trend – mirroring what has taken place in other ICT markets.
“The situation is exemplified by the chase for growth from ‘emerging’ markets like Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa – the strategy is obvious, so everyone is following it. This is equally the case with emerging products and services such as cloud, mobility and UC&C – there is growth, but is there enough to meet everyone’s ambitions and forecasts?”
The 841 page report profiles, compares and assesses 37 key providers of international business networking and related services.
