The industry, which is growing at 20% per annum, is also driven by the favourable initiatives provided by the government. A large number of players are resorting to infrastructure sharing to accommodate the overall growth in subscribers in the urban and rural areas. Recent 3G auctions are also likely to benefit the market. The sector is also characterized by increasing number of mergers & acquisitions and growing outsourcing of network services helping players to reduce their overall capital expenditure.
