Market Research Logo


Founded in 1977, IDATE has gained a reputation as a leader in tracking telecom, Internet and media markets, thanks to the skills of its teams of specialized analysts. Now, with the support of close to 40 member companies – which include many of the digital economy’s most influential players – the newly rebranded DigiWorld Institute has entered into a new stage of its development, structured around three main areas of activity:

• IDATE Research, an independent observatory whose task is to keep a close and continual watch on digital world industries, collect relevant data and provide benchmark analyses on market developments and innovations in the telecom, Internet and media sectors – through its comprehensive collection of market reports and market watch services.

• IDATE Consulting, time-tested analysis and consultancy solutions: Our multi-disciplinary teams of economists and engineers established their credibility and independence through the hundreds of research and consulting assignments they perform every year on behalf of top industry players and public authorities.

• DigiWorld Institute, a European forum open on the world: The DigiWorld Institute will take existing IDATE initiatives, such as the DigiWorld Summit, the DigiWorld Yearbook and the monthly clubs in Paris, London and Brussels, to the next level. Members have the opportunity to participate in think tanks on the core issues that will shape the industry’s future, drawing on the knowledge of outside experts and our own teams.
