Abstract [en]

The objective of this paper is to investigate the telecommunication markets in

India, Singapore and Thailand in order to find the potentiality of the markets

which could be considered by the company to expand its business in

telecommunication field and also to take a proper strategy. Michael Porter

proposed a model that allows analyzing why some nations are more

competitive than others are, and why some industries within nations are more

competitive than others are. (Porter, 1990) Porter believed that there are four

main determinants which can shape the nation‘s competitiveness. In this


―Diamond model‖was practiced to analyze three considerable different

telecom markets: India, Singapore and Thailand. The Indian telecom

industry is the world's fastest growing industry. Singapore is a miniscule

nation with slight population and nature resource scarcity but Singapore has

developed its national ICT industry successful ranks in 2nd place out of 138

countries in 2010-2011

. Thailand‘s mobile penetration rate has reached to

100% but its 3G service still could not move forward. The research found that

Singapore‘s telecom industry

is highly competitive in the global environment.

India‘s telecom industry within its nation

is more competitive than the other


. On the contrary, Thailand‘s telecom industry develops not as

superior as other industries such as its manufacturing or trading. At the end,

predictions for the short time and suggestions of these objective markets

have been commented to contribute to telecom business development in

Asian region for target audience.
