Telecom Sector Stocks in India

Whenever we hear about telecom sector stocks in India, the three names that come to our mind are Reliance Jio Infocomm, Vodafone Idea, and Bharti Airtel. But the telecom sector stocks list is quite long.

The Indian telecom sector is one of the fastest developing sectors in India. India has the second-largest telecom market in the world. The market is rapidly developing because the telecom subscribers are increasing fervently.

Leading telecom companies like Vodafone Idea, Bharti Airtel and Reliance Jio Infocomm have managed to bag investments for US tech giants like Microsoft, Facebook, and Google.

Increasing data service subscribers and data consumption definitely makes the business lucrative. 5G services are not even fully functional in the country and people have already started buying 5G enabled mobile phones.

Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has already developed a 6G innovation group to introduce 6G services in India as soon as possible.

DoT has also reduced its license fees on AGR to 6%. The government has been successful in encouraging mobile payments throughout India. This has boosted the sales of mobile and internet connections.

Hence, the Indian telecom sector has all its fingers in honey.

There’s intense competition in this space which affects the performance of the stocks, resulting in low return on equity (RoE). Lately, with telecom companies increasing capital expenditure and investing in their networks, prospects of telecom companies are expected to improve.

Since telecom services fall under the essential service category, demand is consistent all-round the year.
