NEW YORK, Feb. 06, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to the market research report published by P&S Intelligence, mobile virtual network operator market is expected to reach $98.0 billion by 2023. One of the major factors pushing the market growth is the technical flexibility provided by MNOs.

Based on type, the MVNO market has been categorized into discount, telecom, media/entertainment, business, retail, migrant, cellular M2M, and roaming. Among these, the discount category is estimated to be the largest revenue generator in 2018. During the forecast period, the market for roaming category is anticipated to record highest growth, as MVNOs continue to offer comprehensive roaming tariffs to encourage people to travel more frequently, which, in turn, is expected to generate greater demand for roaming offers.

On the basis of category, the market has been segmented into prepaid and postpaid MVNOs. The postpaid category is estimated to hold a market share of around 52% in the MVNO market in 2018. During the forecast period, the prepaid category is projected to register higher growth, on account of growing mobile penetration in developing countries of Asia-Pacific (APAC), Africa, and Latin America (LATAM), where prepaid schemes are more preferred over postpaid schemes, which carry fixed monthly rentals, irrespective of the usage.

APAC is set to become the largest MVNO market by 2021, globally. Established players have started expanding their footprints in the APAC region. Besides, local MNVOs are planning to expand the scale of their operations by adopting commercial models, tailor-made for the Asian market. A key factor hindering the market is the low average revenue per user (ARPU) in the region as compared to other markets, worldwide. Owing to this, relatively smaller MVNOs struggle to generate profitable business in the market.

The growth of MVNO market largely depends on the limitation of mobile network operators (MNOs) in marketing and distribution strategies in a particular geography. Successful MVNOs make optimum utilization of the existing marketing assets, such as media and telecom, channel infrastructure, and customer database of MNOs. The success of any company largely depends on its brand positioning strategy and value proposition to attract target customers, such as specific ethnic groups, including migrant workers and tourists. Identification of emerging niche telecom markets by MVNOs along with innovative marketing channels such as social media is expected to drive the MVNO market during the forecast period.
