BMI View: Consolidation is driving the German telecommunications market as operators strive to reinvent
themselves as full converged service providers. O2 hopes to acquire E-Plus, Vodafone has gained control
of Kabel Deutschland Group, and cable and broadband operators are exchanging assets that will bolster
their presence in key cities. Low value voice and messaging services are being superseded by data-centric
services as more consumers demand 'everything everywhere' access. Consequently, business strategies are
being reforged and investment budgets geared as much towards the development of differentiated services
as next-generation infrastructure. The shift of one MVNO from low-value prepaid to high-value postpaid
plans conveys the story set to play out over the next five years. BMI believes the German competitive
landscape is changing quickly and that many of today's players will not stay the course.
Key Data
- Mobile subscription growth forecast to rise from 115.2mn in 2013 to 118.6mn by the end of 2018, despite
continued net losses at Vodafone. Market is buoyed by robust MVNO expansion and customer migration
to 4G (LTE).
