GSM, is a system for mobile communication which is a standard developed for illustrating the protocols for second generation (2G) mobile phones enabled with the digital cellular networks. The GSM standards were started as a substitute for the first generation analog cellular network. Moreover, this was further upgraded over the time including the data communication such as circuit-switched transport and then packet further data transport via GPRS (General Packet Radio Services) and EDGE (Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution).The GSM is a broadly used over the wireless technology globally. It also has various application associated to jamming detection, DTMF Decoder and several network protocols. It has the compact size and consumes low power that further reduces the operational and overall cost of the GSM module.
According to study, “Global GSM Services Market to reach USD XXX billion by 2026” the key companies operating in the global GSM services market are China Telecom, Deutsche Telekom, China Mobile, Verizon Communications, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone, Softbank Group, Vodafone Group, America Movil, AT & T, Telefonica.

Additionally, supplementary services include Advice of Charge (AoC), barring of incoming & outgoing calls, call waiting, call hold, Calling Line Identification Presentation (CLIP)/ Restriction (CLIR), multiparty service, Explicit Call Transfer (ECT) and Closed User Group (CUG). Based on carrier frequencies, market is segmented as 900 MHZ, 1800 MHZ and 1900 MHZ. In addition, based on application, market is segmented as Internet-of-Things (IoT), 5G and others.
The GSM services market is driven by escalating mobile phone users, followed by presence of several numbers of GSM providers and rise in adoption of consumer electronics such as Smartphone’s, tablets and phablets. However, lower data security compare to Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) and less number of consumers operating per channel may impact the market. Moreover, data support facility such as web browsing and SMS as well as subscriber Identity module card allowing customer to purchase an additional phone are some of the major growth opportunities of the GSM services market.
Based on geography, the North-America is a prevalent region in the global GSM services market owing to increase in number of mobile phone users coupled with presence of several GS service providers in the region. Whereas, the Asia-Pacific and Europe regions are anticipated to exhibit highest growth rate due to rise in adoption of consumer electronics along with increasing Smartphone penetration over the forecast period. In upcoming years, it is projected that future of the market will be bright as a result of growth in population and improving purchasing power of the consumer caused by rise in income level during the forecast period.
