Moreover, Europes share of the global telecoms market has been declining regularly over the recent years, from 31% in 2005 to just over 25% in 2011 as the gap between global growth (+3.2% in 2011) and that of Europe is broadening. Telcos’ investments in Europe were up 5.2% in 2011 to € 45.5 billion which is quite remarkable notably when compared with Capex growth in the USA and in advanced Asia last year (+1.4% in both).
