The Latin America telecoms market: trends and forecasts 2015-2020
Jun 30, 2015, 01:20 ET
NEW YORK, June 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobile services will account for more than 60% of the telecoms revenue growth in Latin America between 2014 and 2020.
Latin AmericaLTE take-up is accelerating in most markets in Latin America (LATAM) thanks to increasing handset availability, attractive packages during the latest Christmas campaign and further network roll-out. In Brazil, 4G net additions reached 700 000 in 4Q 2014 (their highest level), while in Colombia 4G adoption accelerated significantly during the past three quarters. We forecast that LTE will account for 19% of mobile SIMs in LATAM by 2020.
Mobile revenue will continue to grow in all markets – albeit slowly, as competition intensifies. Several markets are quite dynamic in terms of M&A and network deployment (of cable, fibre and LTE) and competition is intensifying as new MVNOs enter the market (particularly in Brazil, Chile and Colombia). MTR cuts in Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico will intensify price pressure. Substitution of traditional services by over-the-top (OTT) alternatives is strong in Brazil and will accelerate in markets with high smartphone take-up (such as Argentina, Chile and Mexico).

a 5-year forecast of more than 100 mobile and fixed KPIs for the LATAM region as a whole and seven key countries
