New Market Research Report on the United Kingdom telecom services market

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Jan 20 2016

In 2015, UK will be the largest telecom services market in Western Europe and will grow at a 1.0% CAGR from 2015-2020 in local currency to reach $52.4bn (GBP35.7bn) in 2020. More than 80% of the revenue growth between 2015 and 2020 will come from fixed and pay-TV services, while mobile services will grow slowly due to the EU roaming impact and the possible negative effect of fixed-mobile convergence on mobile revenue. Competition in the UK telecom market is set to intensify as operators look to extend their portfolio to remain competitive in a fixed and mobile convergence market. The ongoing consolidation and possible regulatory remedies will change competitive dynamics over the next few years and will likely reinforce a household-centric proposition.

Key Findings

* The UK telecom market will generate total service revenue of $51.8bn (GBP34.0bn) in 2015, a -0.4% decline in local currency from the previous year.
* Pyramid Research expects total service revenue to grow at a 1.0% CAGR from 2015-2020 in local currency (0.2% CAGR in US$). The positive impact of fixed broadband network upgrades on ARPS, the growth of LTE beyond the early-adopter status and in-market consolidation will likely compensate the negative impact of fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) on revenue.
* The growing adoption of LTE services and the migration of voice services to VoLTE will contribute to growing data usage, mitigating losses in mobile voice revenue.
* Broadband customers will benefit from higher speeds as operators are investing heavily in faster networks to achieve the government's target of providing superfast broadband to 95% of premises by 2017.
* Driven by operator's focus on premium content and quad-play offerings, the UK will add about 1.6m pay-TV subscriptions during 2015-2020 to reach a penetration rate of 71.6% of households.
