Table of contents


andnbsp;


8.Executive summary


9.The Western European telecoms market will decline from EUR252 billion in 2014 to EUR231 billion in 2020


10.Traditional telecoms revenue streams will suffer further heavy losses, outweighing growth in the mobile and fixed data markets


11.Fixed and mobile revenue will decline in most countries and regulatory interventions will reduce the revenue boost brought by consolidation


12.Key trends, drivers and assumptions for the mobile and fixed markets


13.Key implications and recommendations for telecoms operators


14.Regional forecasts and cross-country comparison


15.Geographical coverage: Next-generation services will dominate the mobile and fixed broadband markets of Western Europe by 2020


16.Market context: The Western European telecoms market accounts for an average of 1.9% of GDP, with monthly retail spend of EUR42.7 per capita


17.Revenue and ARPU: Telecoms revenue will continue to decline slowly, driven by market maturity and declining ARPU


18.Mobile penetration: Total penetration will not grow in most countries, but significant numbers of users will migrate from prepaid to contract plans


19.Mobile connections: LTE will rapidly become the dominant mobile technology, boosted by the launch of VoLTE services


20.Smartphones and LTE: Smartphones will become the default handset type, with penetration exceeding 100% of population


21.Mobile ARPU: Declining prices and competition from OTT services will cause ARPU to continue to fall during the forecast period


22.Fixed services: The technology mix is evolving rapidly as customers look for faster broadband and operators seek to cut costs


23.Fixed broadband: Growth is a common factor, but varies by country according to the prevailing market characteristics


24.Key drivers at a glance for each Western European market


25.Individual country forecasts


26.France: Market consolidation should bring stability to telecoms revenue


27.France - mobile: More smartphones and LTE in the customer base will offset the impact of converged bundles on ARPU


28.France - fixed: Bundled offers are a key strategy for reducing churn, but broadband ARPU will decline as a result


29.Germany: Total telecoms service revenue will continue to decrease, driven by a decline in mobile and fixed voice revenue


30.Germany - mobile: Quadruple-play offers will put pressure on handset ARPU, and drive users from prepaid to contract deals


31.Germany - fixed: Bundling will reduce broadband ARPU, but the decline will be limited by operators competing on network quality


32.Italy: Telecoms service revenue will continue to decline albeit
at a slower rate than previously


33.Italy - mobile: LTE gained strength in 1Q 2015 and the potential merger of 3 Italia and Wind may ease price competitionandnbsp;


34.Italy - fixed: Pay-TV content agreements and NGA may make the broadband market more dynamic, but penetration will lag behind


35.Spain: Telecoms revenue will decline more slowly than in the past as in-market consolidation, LTE and fibre will ease ARPU pressure


36.Spain - mobile: ARPU will be more resilient as LTE gains momentum and fixed-mobile bundles may reduce churn


37.Spain - fixed: In-market consolidation, fibre deployment and fixed-mobile bundles will make the fixed market very dynamic


38.Sweden: Despite a strong performance in 2014, total revenue
will decline slowly from 2015 as new service growth slows


39.Sweden - mobile: ARPU grew in 2014 because many customers upgraded to contract plans, but this effect will decline from 2015


40.Sweden - fixed: FTTH/B will account for more than half of fixed broadband households, but ASPU will continue to be eroded


41.UK: Total revenue will continue to decline slowly because growth from new services will be undermined by bundling discounts


42.UK - mobile: The pending mergers of BT and EE, and Three and O2, will alter the competitive landscape significantly


43.UK - fixed: Investments in NGA infrastructure will drive take-up of fixed broadband, but bundling will put pressure on ASPU
