We have surveyed hundreds of Tier 1 and 2 communications service providers (CSPs worldwide to create a unique dataset that breaks down their earnings and expenditure in 2012. Our analysis of regional and worldwide trends, complemented by recommendations for CSPs, forms a complete view of the worldwide telecoms market, based on bottom-up primary research.

The worldwide telecoms market grew by 3.2% to reach USD2 trillion in 2012

The worldwide telecoms market grew by 3.2% to reach USD2.01 trillion in 2012. Note that we have adjusted the 2011 revenue figure to reflect the 2012 USD exchange rate.

Communications service providers’ (CSPs’) revenue grew in all regions except EMEA, where revenue declined slightly, by 0.1%. LATAM had the highest year-on-year revenue growth rate, at 9.0%.

Opex and capex worldwide grew by 4.9% and 7.5%, respectively. All regions registered an increase for both opex and capex. LATAM had the greatest growth rate for opex in 2012, at 10.9%, while APAC had the largest capex increase at 14.2%.

An increase of 5.5% in total CSP spend indicates investment in the sector, as new licence and spectrum purchases – particularly for LTE – took place during the year.

EBITDA increased by 0.8% year-on-year worldwide, and grew in all regions except EMEA, where it declined by 2.1%. Among the other three regions, LATAM registered the highest increase, at 6.6%.

Mobile voice and PSTN revenue still account for 50.2% of the total telecoms service revenue worldwide

PSTN and mobile voice services’ combined share of total revenue is in decline, but they still accounted for 50.2% of telecoms service revenue worldwide, down from 51.3% in 2011.

Overall, mobile services account for 53.4% of total telecoms service revenue. This reflects the strong growth in revenue from high-speed mobile data services, such as 3G and mobile broadband.

PSTN lost market share by 1 percentage point in 2012, while broadband services’ market share increased by 0.5 percentage points.

Video service revenue grew by 6.4% to reach USD149 billion in 2012, compared with USD140 billion in 2011. Growth in this market was observed in all regions, but was particularly high in APAC and LATAM, at 28.1% and 19.8%, respectively. This growth can be attributed primarily to growing available of video services in emerging markets with large populations, such as Brazil, China and India.
