出版日期: 2017年03月15日 內容資訊: 英文 33 Slides




  • 行動電話資料流量的成長率在預測期間內將大幅度減速
  • 印度、中國的迅速4G引進促進行動電話資料流量的成長
  • 預計到2021年,在所得水準的每月的終端利用之間也存在相關關係
  • 適配器、路由器流量在大部分的新興市場中未構成流量的大部分、其他


  • 先進亞太地區:先進亞太地區市場,並非全部共有同樣的特徵
  • 先進亞太地區:地區中每1台4G智慧型手機的年成長率,已經極低


  • 香港:業者關注行動數據盈利,為了卸載行動電話流量利用公共Wi-Fi
  • 日本:在預測期間內的技術升級及競爭促進資料流量的成長
  • 韓國:供應端的狀況喜於資料流量的成長,不過,MNO勞於增加流量的盈利
  • 台灣:激烈的市場競爭,業者持續提供無限制的數據方案


關於著者、Analysys Mason



"Some of the most advanced telecoms markets in the world are in developed Asia-Pacific and traffic trends there can indicate future trends in other regions."

Growth rates of cellular data traffic will decline over the next few years in developed Asia-Pacific (DVAP). This report examines the extent of this trend and the different drivers and inhibitors of growth in DVAP, focusing individually on Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.

This report provides:

  • 5-year forecasts of wireless data traffic for DVAP as a whole, and for selected countries
  • worldwide context and specific country commentary for four key countries: Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan
  • analysis of the key trends in, and drivers and inhibitors of, data traffic
  • a discussion of the enablers of future capacity on wireless networks and the cost of supplying that capacity
  • analysis of the trends in private and public usage, and their effect on the use of mobile and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Table of Contents

  • 5.Executive summary
  • 6.Executive summary
  • 7.Worldwide trends
  • 8.Worldwide: The rate of growth for cellular data traffic will slow considerably during the forecast period
  • 9.Worldwide: Rapid 4G adoption in India and China is driving cellular data traffic growth
  • 10.Worldwide: Even in 2021 there will still be some correlation between income levels and monthly handset usage
  • 11.Worldwide: Dongle and router traffic is not set to account for a large proportion of traffic across most emerging markets
  • 12.Worldwide: Public Wi-Fi traffic's share of total out-of-home traffic is declining in developed markets
  • 13.Worldwide: There continues to be little correlation between cellular data traffic growth and operator revenue
  • 14.Worldwide: Removing unlimited throttled speed prepaid data quotas can significantly reduce traffic, but its commercial impact has been mixed
  • 15.Worldwide: Offering unlimited throttled speed video traffic need not increase video traffic and could be a significant differentiator
  • 16.Regional trends
  • 17.Developed Asia-Pacific: Markets in the DVAP region do not all share the same characteristics
  • 18.Developed Asia-Pacific: Annual growth rates per 4G smartphone are already quite low in the region

  • 20.Hong Kong: Operators are focusing on mobile data profitability and using public Wi-Fi to offload cellular traffic
  • 21.Japan: Technology upgrades and competition will drive data traffic growth during the forecast period
  • 22.South Korea: Supply-side conditions favour data traffic growth, but MNOs will struggle to monetise traffic increases
  • 23.Taiwan: Operators continue to offer unlimited data plans, due to intense market competition
