    BMI View: After a challenging 2013, which we estimate saw a contraction in sales for all three segments of the Saudi market, the market is expected to recover from 2014. There are however continued drags on growth including the security situation in Iraq and Syria, as well as the government's policy to reduce Saudi Arabia's reliance on foreign workers. This is having a negative impact on the sales of mobile handsets in the kingdom, with local retailers reporting that their sales have nearly halv......

    BMI View: The Danish telecommunications market is highly mature and increasingly focused around value-added premium services. Most notably, while the broadband market is growing steadily on the back of demand for converged services, the mobile sector is beginning to show signs of fatigue with periodic declines in subscriber numbers linked to the retirement of low-value or inactive accounts. Curiously, adoption of M2M services lags other equally advanced European markets, although growth now seem......

    Published: 23-Jul-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 110
    BMI View: The maturity of the Finnish telecommunications market means there are scant opportunities for new and long-term investors. The wireline market continues to decline owing to mobile substitution and the mobile business is itself under threat from IP substitution.

Thus, investment will be focused on high-bandwidth infrastructure such as fibr......
