Germany: Country Intelligence Report


"Germany: Country Intelligence Report", a new Country Intelligence Report, provides an executive-level overview of the telecommunications market in Germany today, with detailed forecasts of key indicators up to 2023. Published annually, the report provides detailed analysis of the near-term opportunities, competitive dynamics, and evolution of demand by service type and technology/platform across the fixed telephony, broadband, mobile, and pay-TV segments, as well as a review of key regulatory trends.

Total telecom and pay-TV services revenue in Germany will be driven majorly by mobile data, pay-TV, and fixed broadband segments. Mobile data revenue will grow at a CAGR of 6.9% (in both US$ and euros), driven by rising data consumption and the MNOs’ continued focus on 4G network expansions and capacity upgrades. The expected launch of 5G services in 2020 will further boost mobile revenues going ahead. Fixed broadband revenue will be led by steady growth in DSL and cable subscriptions and projected rises in FTTX segment, while pay-TV revenue growth will be supported by subscription growth in IPTV segment.
