Retail Roaming Revenue to Exceed $19 Billion Globally by 2027

Feb. 20, 2023

Mobileum, Tata Communications and Syniverse Revealed as Top Vendors

A new study from Juniper Research has found that the value of the retail roaming market will reach $19 billion by 2027 globally; a substantial increase from $10 billion in 2022. This growth of 98% in revenue will be driven by both an increase in the number of 5G roaming subscribers across key international travel corridors between North America, Europe and Asia Pacific, and data generated by these new 5G connections whilst roaming internationally.

The research anticipates that this increase in roaming data will be attributable to new devices, such as cellular-enabled laptops, wearables and tablets. It warns that this growth will necessitate increased operator reliance on roaming vendors to manage the ever-growing complexity of roaming ecosystems.
