Developments in this market have been dominated by industry consolidation, a process that is set to continue over coming years. Moving towards a structurally separated regulatory environment with a NBN at the horizon, size really does matter. The second tier market continues to grow strongly, in particular from Vocus and TPG, both of which continue to grow through increased scale via mergers and acquisitions. The market reached approaching $5 billion in 2016 with an annual growth rate of over 10% Growth is anticipated to subside over the next year due to market consolidation and a maturing market.
The Vocus / Merger with M2 creates Australia's fourth-largest telecommunications company and the third-largest in New Zealand. It sees a welcome strengthening of the competitive environment in Australia. The telecoms market has developed more and more into a utilities market, and in such markets size matters. It will allow the combined entity to be more efficient and more effective.
While the TPG/iiNet merger brought two similar companies together, and as such potentially reduced the number of players in the market, the Vocus/M2 combination brings two different companies together – one operating in the business market and one operating in the retail market. This will allow the companies to share resources and attract better deals from the various ICT (wholesale) providers they do business with.
This report provides an overview of some of the larger 2nd-tier market players, including key revenue figures for the market, financial and operational overviews for operators, and market analysis.
