The Telecoms capex: worldwide trends and forecast 2017–2025

Telecoms capex will show some recovery following a slump in 2016/2017, but growth will be increasingly driven by wireless investment, especially 5G, rather than wireline, as a major wave of FTTx investment tails off. Another significant area of capex investment in the early 2020s will be in digital infrastructure and technology to support software-defined networking (SDN), and in time, network slicing. In Analysys Mason’s first comprehensive telelcoms capex forecast, spending is broken down by region, operator profile and 10 categories of investment, with trends fully analysed.
