2009 Telecom Outlook

  1. 1. 2009 Telecom Outlook A CHALLENGING YEAR AND EMERGING OPPORTUNITIES
  2. 2. quot;This is the exact time to invest -if you can– because not only is there opportunity, but there are lots of resources out there.“ Mike Lazaridis, RIM co-CEO
  3. 3. Expected growth rate for 2009 for the Telecom equipment market, compared to the year before (IDATE).
  4. 4. Expected negative growth rate for 2009 for mobile phone shipments, compared to the year before (IDC).
  5. 5. Nortel will cut 3,200 positions on top of previous cuts, Nokia will cut another 1,700 jobs and Microsoft will cut 5% of its workforce over the next 18 months.
  6. 6. The industry is reaching a tipping point. The outlook for the Telecom Industry is challenging, but the industry was facing decreasing margins and a flattening growth rate for voice before the crisis.
  7. 7. The AppStore changed the power balance. Developers have access to the mobile market without getting first an operator's blessing. New players now have the capacity to influence the market.
  8. 8. Mobile Apps and Smartphones will drive growth in 2009. Apple's AppStore now has over 25,000 downloadable applications and will become a $1B business by the end of 2009. Palm, RIM, Nokia, Windows and Android announced app stores for 2009.
  9. 9. New players will benefit from new opportunities. Traditional infrastructure vendors will struggle through the recession but 2009 will be a big year with opportunities for Smartphones and Mobile Applications.
  10. 10. Apple changed the rules of the game. Operators, technology vendors, content providers and handset vendors will now have to play by these rules, whether they like it or not.
  11. 11. quot;Despite the economic environment, we grew revenues in 2008, and I expect 2009 will be another year of overall revenue growth and solid progress for our company,quot;
