Country Industry Forecast - European Union Telecommunications Industry

  • Published: March 2004
  • Region: Europe
  • Frost & Sullivan



The opening of the European Union (EU) telecommunications market to foreign participants has led to the introduction of more value-added products and services. This, in turn, has not only increased revenue but also changed the industry structure significantly in many EU member countries as private operators have been gaining substantial market shares. Currently, mobile and Internet services are the major drivers of the overall telecommunications industry across the EU. In future, the wireless telecommunications service and equipment segments are expected to perform better, registering compound annual growth rates of 6.06 percent and 3.17 percent, respectively from 2003 to 2008.

The current focus of the EU institutions is on making the EU one of the most competitive markets in the world by 2010 and ensuring stable economic growth. Efforts to this end include investment in human capital, improvements in physical infrastructure and enhancement of available network in the transportation, telecommunications and energy sectors. To counteract sluggish economic conditions compounded by increased uncertainties due to geopolitical tensions and international terrorism, the European Commission has endorsed economic growth initiatives including European Action for Growth.
