Global Telecoms - The Big Picture 2019 - Key Industry Statistics

Synopsis

In 2019 the global telecommunications market continues its transformation and is underpinning the digital, sharing and interconnected economy. This evolution is mainly driven by the ongoing innovations and technological developments relating to M2M, Big Data Analytics, AI, Cloud Computing and the over-arching Internet of Things. The industry is working hard to keep up with these rapid changes.

Annually, the telcos spend billions on telecoms investments, which account for the majority of the industry’s total expenditure. While fibre-based projects capture a large portion of capital expenditure; we are seeing a growth in CAPEX as operators begin spending on infrastructure in preparation for 5G technology. In 10 years the mobile industry has grown from around 2.6 billion unique mobile subscriptions in 2009 to almost double that worldwide today.

With more and more video applications being used by consumers and initiatives around M2M and the Internet of Everything beginning to increase; there is a widespread interest in upgrading to higher-speed services. There are now around 1 billion fixed broadband subscribers worldwide. In terms of future broadband subscriber growth; Asia remains a key market.
