The Europe Mobile Virtual Network Operator Market Size would grow at a growth rate of 9.6% CAGR during the forecast period (2016 - 2022).
Factors that would drive the market growth would be significant rise in the rate of data usage and easy access to smartphones. Significant investments by Mobile Network Operator (MNOs') to manage existing infrastructure coupled with low operational costs would add to the demand for MNO services. Nevertheless, limited or lack of operational expertise would hinder the market growth. To maintain healthy competitive market, the MVNO?s offer differentiated services as compared to MNO?s. MVNO?s, to maintain market share, target niche markets such as retail, businesses, roaming services, migrants, and youth.
To make things better for MNO's, the MVNO's provide wholesale deals, which eventually increases network utilization and as a result create their sub-brands. Technological advancements, namely M2M and cloud would drive the market during the forecast period. A mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) acts as a reseller for wireless communications services.

Very large MNOs such as Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile work on a different strategy, that is, sell minutes to resellers as a reseller.
