(in billion euros)
Values up to 2020 were taken from previous editions.
* Aggregate industry revenue has changed in the 2018 report from previous editions of the report. In the 2018 edition, global industry revenue for 2016 was restated to 385.1 billion euro, representing a decrease of 40.2 billion euro on the 425.3 billion euro reported in the 2017 edition. This was mainly due to significant reporting revisions by two large operators, Poste Italiane and China Post: the former adjusted how it reports insurance services revenue, while the latter now reports detailed segment information and a reduced share of revenue generated by its partly-owned subsidiary, Postal Savings Bank of China. Both revisions combined to reduce industry revenue by 37.2 billion euro compared to previously-reported 2016 results. The remaining three billion euro change was due to more minor restatements by posts, exchange rate effects and the addition of Ukrposhta and Vietnam Post.
