New Delhi: The country's mobile subscriber base is expected to touch 993 million by 2014, led by the rural market, according to research firm Gartner.
Gartner expects the world's fastest growing mobile market to close this year with over 660 million subscribers, it said in a statement.
"The arrival of new players in the Indian mobile sector has led to fierce competition, which has sustained the strong subscriber growth seen in 2009," Gartner Senior Research Analyst Neha Gupta said.
With a mobile penetration of 44.5 per cent in 2009-end, there is still ample room for growth in 2010 and beyond, she added.
India is the second-largest wireless market in the world, after China with 618 million mobile subscribers at the end of May 2010, according to telecom regulator TRAI.
