Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Although consumer demand has been fuelled by solid growth in the number of mobile connections and continuing advances in product design and technology, these changes have not translated well into the retail market. Instead of record sales, industry operators have faced a difficult trading environment.

Revenue is expected to decline at a compound annual rate of 6.5% over the five years through 2015-16 to reach £2.4 billion thanks to mounting external competition leading to shrinking profit margins and declines in the average price of phones.
