Global Telecoms Trends - The Big Picture 2019 - Key Industry Statistics
In 2019 the global telecommunications market continues its transformation underpinning the digital, sharing and interconnected economy. This evolution is mainly driven by the ongoing innovations and technological developments including M2M, Big Data Analytics, AI, Cloud Computing and the over-arching Internet of Things and the industry is working hard to keep up with these rapid changes.
Telcos are also focused on customer retention and churn in the face of dwindling revenues brought about market saturation and the disruptive rise of the OTT players. Many operators are improving mobile and fixed broadband infrastructure with an eye to the future. Some operators are also looking at the vertical markets to boost revenue streams and others are expanding regionally or internationally. Bundling of services has been a growing trend over the past ten years or so and many countries around the world have embraced this service model.
4G LTE deployment and network upgrades are a key trend around much of the world and there is also a keen investment in fixed broadband based on fibre. 5G developments are gaining pace and will continue to be a key area of focus in 2019 and beyond.
