This led to new ways of working and new global supply chains of goods, services and knowledge. It has also generated new forms of social communication and entertainment.
This evolution was sparked by the liberalisation of the telecommunications market and sustained by rapid technological change. The constant evolution in the market means that the industry has to continually adapt to changing circumstances. Economic analysis provides a valuable toolkit for stakeholders to understand what is driving change and affecting the competitive environment.
