Session details

The telecoms market size is expected to reach $3450 billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of around 6%. The growth in the telecoms market is attributed to the increasing development of smart cities and emerging market growth, and Dragos PREDA is the true promoter of smart cities and communities for the last 5 years.
However, the market for telecom is expected to face certain restraints from several factors such as security issues and stringent regulatory environment. One of the key restraints of the market include-National security – the telecoms industry involved in the provision of national networks across the world is increasingly targeted by hackers, exposing various security issues.
With the adoption of advanced technologies and growing government initiatives, the scope and potential of the global telecoms market is expected to increase in the forecast period. The top opportunities in the global telecoms market will arise in the wired telecommunications carriers segment which will gain $338.8 billion of global annual sales by 2022.
