Arthur D. Little Report Outlines €200 Billion Digital Transformation Opportunity for Telecoms Sector17.12.2018 08:30Pressemelding

Arthur D. Little (ADL) today published a new research report highlighting the need for greater digitalization in the global telecoms industry. The TIME 2018 Flagship Report outlines the scale of the digital opportunity, with analysis estimating that a ‘digital dividend’ of over €200 billion free cash flow awaits telcos that can successfully transform. Industry executives surveyed for the report confirm the findings. 73% say that digital will add value to their businesses, with key benefits including greater agility, increased subscriber growth and cost savings. CAPEX spending on areas such as 5G infrastructure and the Internet of Things is expected to require a 7% CAGR increase from 2017-2022, outpacing forecast revenue growth. Consequently, failing to digitally transform risks commoditization and disintermediation, leaving telcos unable to invest sufficiently. As one senior executive put it bluntly, “Digitalization – there is no other choice if we want to survive.” The report highligh

Arthur D. Little Global Automotive Study Outlines Importance of Car in Changing World of Mobility17.12.2018 08:30Pressemelding

Arthur D. Little (ADL) today released its worldwide automotive market report. Key findings are that desire for car ownership remains strong, especially amongst the young, and that drivers are considering a dramatic switch to electric and hybrid vehicles (EVs). This will impact manufacturer and supplier engine strategies and push for faster development of EV ecosystems, such as charging solutions. Drivers are now much more willing to embrace alternative drivetrains. 58% would accept paying more for hybrids, and 50% for EVs. While the majority have petrol or diesel-engined vehicles, this could change rapidly. Of those planning to replace their car, 48% said they’d consider an EV (BEV, hybrid or plugin hybrid), 36% a petrol-engined vehicle and 12% diesel. Klaus Schmitz, Partner with Arthur D. Little explains: “Extending our groundbreaking 2015 automotive study shows enormous changes. While attachment to car ownership remains high, meaning the overall automotive market will remain stable,
