Within the industry, content production, publishing and distribution activities have highly varying levels of internationalisation. There has been a marked escalation of transnational mergers over the recent period, indicating a new phase in globalisation of the industry.
There is now pressure coming from two main angles: producers are faced with constantly increasing production costs, and distributors are faced with continually high CAPEX levels and new competition from OTT players. European service publishers have to reinvent their strategies in this new globalised context, which is dominated by North American players.

Digital Agenda Europe
Market report

The study highlights the diverse contrast between the countries according to the threshold of 100 Mbps. The situation is quite different for Superfast broadband (<100 Mbps) or higher speed (at > 100 Mbps). The analysis shows by the way that customers willingness to subscribe to broadband network do increase with the speed. The higher is the proposed bit rate, the higher is in general the penetration.
Digital Economy 2025
Market report
more This report develops a perspective of where the digital economy, and in particular the telecoms and Internet sectors, might be headed over the next decade, to 2025.
The starting point of the study was to identify key trends that have clearly emerged and major uncertainties, which might push the industry to develop in one direction or another.

Four contrasting yet plausible scenarios for the digital economy industry in 2025 are developed. They are projected against a two-by-two matrix. One axis is the presence of enablers providing specialised solutions, which other companies can leverage to build their own businesses upon. The other dimension is the intensity with which personal data are being used, serving to indicate the range of services which telcos and Internet players will provide.
The report concludes by presenting quantitative projections for each scenario: Mall, Open, Automated and Trust.

DigiWorld Yearbook 2016
Market report
more Every year, the DigiWorld Yearbook is awaited by players for its unique summary of the digital economy and its highlighting of key trends. For the release of the 16th edition, our team will spur a debate on the possible future for the key sectors: internet, telecoms and TV!
more The Middle East-Africa (MEA) region is a mosaic of countries with marked contrasts in terms of population, wealth, governance and economic development. Their telecom markets reflect this diversity, albeit with the shared feature of having mobile technologies as their chief purveyor of information and communication technologies (ICT). So it is only logical that the region’s Internet development will rely on mobile systems. Its future will depend on a range of factors on both the supply side (network rollouts, available services, pricing) and the demand side (buying power), as well as the actions taken by governments, investors and local businesses. Across the board, however, superfast mobile represents telecom operators’ main source of growth, and the core ingredient in the market’s expected growth over the next five years, which we forecast at 15.5 billion EUR.

This 2nd edition of the DigiWorld Yearbook devoted to Africa and the Middle East explores ins and outs of the digital economy in this up and coming region.

This new edition is published with support from DigiWorld Institute members Eutelsat, Nokia, Orange, PwC and Verizon.
