Research and Markets: Future of Value Added Services (VAS) Market in India 2009-13 Forecasts VAS Market Size over the Period of 2009-13.

DUBLIN -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Future of Value Added Services (VAS) Market in India 2009-13" report to their offering.

The Indian telecom industry is one of the fastest growing in the world and India is projected to become second largest telecom market globally by 2010. This has helped the VAS Industry in India to come out of its infancy. Even the global economic slowdown has done less to affect its growth.

The mobile VAS market has grown by around 60% year on year and is estimated to touch INR 251 billion in FY 2009-10. This trend is expected to increase in future, as VAS services will become a major revenue source for telecom operators in India. This becomes critical, as the Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) for telecom operators is decreasing despite the overall increase in consumer base. The growth in tier 2-3 cities has helped increase the overall consumer base of mobile services in India but this has created problems of its own. Currently companies working in VAS segment are facing challenges like high cost of VAS, limited availability of content in local language(s) and non-availability of enough high-end mobile phones.

These challenges will still not affect the growth of VAS in India due to factors like increase in awareness of VAS, increased subscriber base, introduction of 3G services and increased focus on m-Commerce.
