This report by Analysys Mason Group forecast that operators’ retail revenue from large enterprises in Western Europe will stabilise at EUR40 billion supported by continued growth in new business services and IoT
Operators’ revenue from large enterprises (250+ employees) will remain stable, although the mix of services used will gradually shift. Revenue will be buoyed by an increase in IoT deployment.
Worldwide revenue from voice and data connectivity services to large enterprises will decline from USD199.6 billion in 2017 to USD193.8 billion by 2022. This decline will be offset by growth in operator revenue from ‘other business services’ – key revenue streams for operators to target include co-location and hosting and private cloud services. Revenue from large enterprises in high-income regions is stagnating or in decline, while enterprises in emerging Asia–Pacific continue to increase spend.
