The telecommunications market in Germany will generate service revenue of $48.9bn (?44.7bn) in 2016. Telecom services revenue will grow at a CAGR of 0.5% in local currency over 2016-2021, mainly due to Deutsche Telekom’s (DT) migration of circuit-switched lines to IP technology. Mobile data will be the largest contributor to overall service revenue in 2016, accounting for 26% of total revenue. During 2016-2021, mobile data will witness CAGR of 5.7% in local currency, owing to rising LTE adoption, growth in mobile data usage and M2M revenue. Fixed VoIP will record a strong CAGR of 13.9% over 2016-2021, while fixed broadband and pay-TV will register CAGRs of 3.1% and 4.8%, respectively, during the same period. Operators should seize opportunities in FMC, data and video services, and IoT/M2M. LTE expansion and investments in fiber deployments by operators will present opportunities for vendors and investors.
