34% of European towers to be owned by independent towercos by 2020
TowerXchange’s updated market forecast
In the past five years, over 20 tower transactions of scale with a combined deal value of over €4bn have been completed in the European tower market. Add to this the creation of joint venture ‘infracos’ and carve out of operator-captive towercos yet to be monetised, and the ownership of towers across Europe has seen a significant shift. With activity having ramped up in recent months, TowerXchange look ahead to 2020 and examine how the ownership of Europe’s towers is set to change.
