Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) Market Is Expected To US$ 75.5 Bn by 2023

According to a new market report published by Acute Market Reports, Inc., “Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) Market – Growth, Share, Opportunities, Competitive Analysis, and Forecast 2016 – 2023”, the MVNO market is expected to exceed US$ 75.5 Bn by 2023, witnessing a growth of 7.1% CAGR during the forecast period 2016-2023.

Market Insights:

Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO) are wireless communication service providers who do not have network infrastructure of their own but offer wireless communication services through an agreement/contract with other mobile network operators. Thus, MVNOs gain bulk access to communication services at wholesale rates and set the retail price of their offerings independently. Similar to mobile network operators, MVNOs may have their own customer service centers, billing systems, and even subscriber identity module (SIM) card under their own brand name.

The issues related to technical complexities (network and IT integration between the MVNO and operator) and cost (both capital expenditure and operating expenditure) are some of the factors inhibiting the market growth. However, the impact of these challenges is expected to subdue over the forecast period since such issues are now majorly addressed by MVNAs (Mobile Virtual Network Aggregators) and MVNEs (Mobile Virtual Network Enablers), who act as facilitators between MVNOs and mobile network operators.
