The Global Internet Service Providers market is one of the fastest growing industries in the global economy. Explosive growth is being propelled by rapid advancements in internet-related infrastructure and services. The emergence of a plethora of powerful personal and business internet applications has transformed how businesses and consumers operate. These markets are benefiting from the internet´s increasing ability to cut time and shrink distance. For businesses, this has delivered productivity improvements and enabled greater connectivity. For consumers it has revolutionized communication, information access and entertainment.

2013, industry revenue is expected to grow 8.8% per year on average. In 2013, the industry is expected to grow 8.3% to $358.1 billion. The developed markets of Europe, North America and North Asia still dominate the global industry, accounting for an estimated 82.0% of revenue and, due to the rapid growth of Chinese broadband subscribers, over 80% of global connections.
Nevertheless, the emerging markets of South America, Southeast Asia, India and Central Asia have been making some inroads. Broadband penetration in these regions has increased considerably from very low levels over the past five years.

Capital investment in the industry is expected to increase as ISPs upgrade and expand their networks.
