Telecom market research firm Infonetics
Research released excerpts from its latest 2G,
3G, LTE Mobile Services and Subscribers market size and
forecast report, which tracks mobile service revenue, mobile voice and
data average revenue per user (ARPU), and mobile voice and broadband
The report shows that in 2013, mobile operators around the world took in
$800 billion from mobile services-including mobile voice, SMS/MMS, and
broadband-an increase of just 1% from the year before. When the growth
rates of the world's main regions are parsed individually, though, a
clearer story emerges, as Asia Pacific (+5%), the Caribbean and Latin
America (+4%), and North America (+3%) together offset a high
single-digit decline in EMEA.
"Europe dragged global mobile service revenue again in 2013, plagued by
mobile saturation and weak consumer spending across the board-even in
Germany, the euro zone's largest economy-and fierce price-based
competition in markets including Belgium, France, Italy, Spain, and The
Netherlands," notes Stéphane
Téral, principal analyst for mobile infrastructure and carrier
economics at Infonetics
adds: "At this point, the CEOs of Europe's BIG 5-Deutsche
Telekom, Orange, Telecom Italia, Telefónica, Vodafone-are
pushing the European Commission for more consolidation to reduce the
number of operators in each country, from four or five to just three.
The hope is this will restore operators' revenue growth and margins,
similar to what we saw in Austria."
