NEW YORK, Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Includes 3 FREE quarterly updates
Asia's telecoms market presents significant growth prospects for operators as the world's largest region by population. Even the more price-sensitive markets in the region have seen considerable uptake of 3G/4G services as a result of subsidized data and affordable smartphone prices and this will lay the foundation for bundling and upselling opportunities for operators over the longer term. On the other hand, enthusiastic uptake of advanced telecoms and value-added services in more developed markets will decelerate the speed of ARPU decline. That said, the global slowdown is a notable downside risk to profit growth in the near term.
Key Forecasts And Developments
- We forecast mobile subscriptions to grow 3.2% to 3.87bn in 2016. At 93.1% in 2015, mobile penetration is high, yet far from saturated in less-developed telecoms markets. We believe the preference for multi- SIM ownership in large, but relatively less-saturated prepaid markets such as Bangladesh, India and Pakistan still present ample potential for organic growth.
