Internet Expansion, a Boost to ISP Growth in India

The usage of internet services in India has seen rapid growth in recentyears. According to a report from Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI), the country has seen a rise of 49% in the number of internet users.

Citing the growth in the number of users, India may soon become the second largest country in the world in terms of internet users. Currently, the US occupies the second place and India ranks third. China, with over 60 crore users, tops the list.

Growth in Internet Users

The IAMAI report predicted that the number of internet users may reach 40.2 crores by the end of this month. Among the 40.2 crore users, 30.6 crore will be smart phone users. In October 2015, smart phone internet users totaled 27.6 crores, as per IAMAI and Indian Market Research Bureau (IMRB). Mobile internet users will be dominating the market.

The rapid growth and popularity of internet in the recent years is evident from the statistics. The country took more than 10 years to change the number of internet users from 1 crore to 10 crores. In another 3 years, this became 20 crores. However, it took only a year for the figure to change from 30 crores to 40 crores. 

The number of internet users in the country is expected to reach 46.2 crores by June, next year. Last year in December, the figure was 30 crores, which rose to 37.5 crores in October 2015.

The trends in the Indian market as of October 2015 show that urban Indian users have increased by 65% in the last year, reaching 19.7 crores, while the increase in the rural market was 99%, with 8 crore users. Additionally, the survey mentioned that 1.14 crore non-internet users expressed their wishes to use the internet within a year.

The overall increase in the usage of internet is set to enhance the businesses of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in the country. Good speed is very important in the internet world. ISPs that provide efficient services and high-speed connectivity will rule the market.
