Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

The Wired Telecommunications industry in China has a high concentration level, since there are only three carriers operating within this industry: China Telecommunications Corporation, China Network Communications Corporation, and China Mobile Communications Corporation.

The high industry concentration level is also due to heavy government regulations in the industry. The dominance of existing players, government controls, and the downward trend of fixed-line telecommunication in China leave very limited opportunities for new participants.
