Qatar's mobile market is growing robustly in subscription terms, but price competition is eroding core service revenues and profit margins. Growth is linked to expansion of the migrant workforce, but this will slow significantly in the medium term. The market benefits from a wealthy population and there is untapped demand for advanced data services, particularly among businesses. Growing interest in video content is also evident, boding well for service diversification strategies.
