BMI View: Argentina’s strong telecoms growth story continues, keeping the market at the top of
developments in the region. The introduction of MVNOs will make the market even more competitive and
contribute further to growth, although operator ARPUs will likely suffer as a result. The decision for Arsat
to enter as an MVNO and a wholesale provider rather than a major MNO, and offering back spectrum to
incumbents, has allayed some of the concerns from last quarter. But industry risks remain over delays to the
4G auction and in the pay TV sector, the new media law currently being debated in the courts and could
severely restrict the country’s largest cable operator. With the highest 3G penetration rate in the region,
and a continuing increase in the number of subscribers signing up to services, there is plenty for Argentina
to lose. Broadband is one of the success stories due to the ‘Argentina Conectada’ plan, encouraging large
investments and seeing positive rewards. Economic uncertainty and the political outlook are still potential
problems.
Key Data
? Argentina’s mobile market is showing no signs of saturation although we believe there to be a number of
inactive subscribers.
? Market average ARPU increased 9% y-o-y in Q412, reaching ARS54 due to the success of mobile
broadband.
? Fixed voice connections continued to fall, decreasing to 9.113mn in Q412. BMI revised forecasts to
show a sharper decline in 2012 and 2013 than before.
? Fixed and mobile broadband connections are on the rise, an estimated 13mn in service at the end of 2012.

  • Bulgaria Consumer Electronics Report Q4 2014
    Published: 20-Aug-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 75
    BMI View: Notwithstanding the short term challenges presented by thecurrent weak economic environment we consider the consumer electronics market in Bulgaria to have strong medium-term growth potential. Low device penetration across most device categories will allow vendors to tapinto the first-time buyer and upgrade/replacement markets as incomes rise. As device prices decline and incomes rise we believe Bulgaria could outperform the geographical region over the medium term. However we expect d......

    BMI View: The market correction in Bulgaria's mobile market continued in Q114 after two consecutive years of contraction in FY12 and FY13. However, we retain our forecast for the market to return to positive growth in FY14, albeit marginal, as operators complete the elimination of inactive lines on their networks. We also retain the view that the weak subscriptions growth opportunities, along with strong take-up of smartphones, will drive operators to develop their data service offerings to take......
  • Switzerland Telecommunications Report Q4 2014
    Published: 20-Aug-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 108
    BMI View: Switzerland's relative economic wealth has driven investment by operators in infrastructure, with the incumbent Swisscom investing in fibre and launching LTE in 2012. The competition has also been investing in LTE, with all three mobile network operators offering commercial services since June 2013. High capital expenditure into new infrastructure and increasing competition for data services will be eroding the profit margins for all main operators in short-term, but we still expect th......

    BMI View: We have a bullish outlook for the continued development of Chile's IT market, and we expect it to be a regional outperformer in Latin America despite its small population. High levels of spending per capita have already resulted in the country having the highest PC penetration rate in the region, a fact that bodes well for growth of software and IT services in the market - an important sign of market maturity. Nevertheless, there is still significant growth from hardware sales, with ne......

    BMI View: Although we hold a positive view on Turkey's Consumer Electronics Market's long-term growth outlook, our real GDP forecasts reflect a downside in the next few years. This is the result of less abundant foreign capital inflows and slowing domestic credit growth, both key drivers of Turkey's economy. Despite an expected short-term moderation therefore, Turkey's consumer electronics market is well positioned to outperform most other emerging Europe markets. Demand is expected to increase ......
