This statistic highlights American Tower’s Revenue by Segment, reported on a quarterly basis from Q1 2016 onwards, split between Property and Services segments.

American Tower’s Revenue by Segment

Segment Q3 2020 Q2 2021 Q3 2021 Revenue Contribution in Q3 2021
Property $1,987.6 $2,233.0 $2,368.9 96.52%
Services $25.3 $65.9 $85.4 3.48%
Total $2,012.9 $2,298.9 $2,454.3 100%

(All figures in millions, except percentages)

American Tower’s revenue in Q3 2020 was $2,012.9 million, which increased by nearly 22% to $2,454.3 million in Q3 2021. The company even observed a revenue rise of 6.8% as compared to $2,298.9 million in Q2 2021.

The revenue is bifurcated into the following segments:

Property

The company’s primary business provides leasing space on communication sites for wireless service providers, television and radio companies, wireless ISPs (or data providers), municipalities, tenants, and government agencies in several other industries. These primary operations are referred to as the company’s “property operations.”

The tenants lease space on the communications real estate, which is the place where tenants install and maintain their equipment. Rent costs usually consist of power and fuel costs, ground rent (primarily fixed through long-term agreements involving annual price escalations) and property taxes or repairment and maintenance expenses. Other factors might include amount, type or position of tenant equipment on the tower, tower location, and remaining tower capacity.

Trends Observed in the Property Segment 

  • Property operations have been the major source of income for American Tower, accounting for 96.5% of the revenue in Q3 2021, 97% in Q2 2021, and almost 99% in the final quarter, Q3 2020 (similar quarter as the latest available in 2021).
  • Revenue incurred by Property Services rose by $1,987 in Q3 2020 to $2,368 in Q3 2021, marking almost 20% growth on a year-on-year basis.
  • It also grew by 6% as compared to the revenue generation of $2,233 million in Q2 2021.

Services

Apart from property operations, the company even offers tower-related services in the US, which are called “service operations.” These involve zoning, permitting, site application and structural analysis as well. These services aid the company’s main site in leading business apart from adding new tenants and equipment.

The company engages in site application services on its own as well as the tenant’s behalf, connecting the tower development projects. As a part of services operations, American Tower works with the tenant’s engineer to figure out regions where fresh communication sites will best cater to the tenant’s needs and meet the coverage objectives.

In structural analysis, the company provides services to wireless carriers connected to installing the communications equipment on towers. American Tower has a team of engineers who evaluate whether a specific tower structure will be able to support the additional burden of new equipment, or some upgradation is required. This helps the tenants to assess potential sites before installing anything.

Trends Observed in the Services Segment 

  • As mentioned above, services operations exist basically to support the main business, but there has been a constant growth in the service operations segment’s contribution to the revenue.
  • In Q3 2021, services operations constituted approximately 3.5% of the total revenue. This metric stood at 2.9% in Q2 2021.
  • Revenue from services operations increased by 29.6% from Q2 2021 to Q3 2021.
  • Similarly, on a yearly basis, in Q3 2021 this segment grew more than twice the revenue that was observed in Q3 2020, i.e. from $25.3 million to $85.4 million.
