The Communications Market 2021

Published: 22 July 2021

The CMR is now an interactive data portal, which allows users to interrogate data collected from industry by Ofcom, data from Ofcom’s consumer research, as well as headline figures from selected third parties. The interactive portal will be updated throughout the year.

Commentary and analysis of much of the data used in the CMR can be found in each of our Media Nations, Online Nation, Connected Nations, and Annual Monitoring Update on the Postal Market reports, where we review and explore specific sectors of the media and communications markets in detail.


We have also published a short summary of our main findings.
