WTA Report Reveals Impact of Consolidation on Facilities, Revenues, Capacity Usage and Capex

The World Teleport Association (WTA) has released Sizing the Teleport Market 2018. In this report, WTA has conducted a new market sizing study, updating information last published in 2010, to present a financial and statistical picture of the industry as it exists in 2018.

WTA surveyed teleport executives the world's leading experts in the teleport industry in order to answer the following questions: How large is the teleport industry in terms of facilities, companies, revenue, antennas in operation, full-time employment, and spending on satellite capacity, fiber capacity and technology?; How much revenue is generated per teleport and per employee on average?; and Where are the hot spots for teleport operations?

The 2018 study found that the number of commercial teleports worldwide has decreased 1 percent per year from 2016 to 2018, as the teleport sector has consolidated and companies have scaled up to gain cost-efficiencies and improve their competitive position. Over the same period, however, total estimated revenues of the sector grew 6% to US$10.4 billion, as consolidation created fewer, more productive assets. In 2017, an estimated 13,700 people worked in the teleport industry, which operated more than 24,000 antennas.

Sizing the Teleport Market 2018 is free for WTA Members and available for purchase by non-Members.
