    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 Philippines telecoms market is largely a two-horse race dominated by incumbent Philippine Long Distance Telephone (PLDT) - which owns 63.4% subscription share - and Globe Telecom - with 36.6% share of the mobile market in Q114.

    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......

    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 already had a positive outlook for IT market growth in the Czech Republic in 2014, but this view has been bolstered by a recovery in the desktop and notebook market, as well as a stronger economic outlook. Higher levels of business and consumer confidence will see demand growth, while deferred purchases from the previous period of uncertainty, particularly in enterprise software and IT services, will add to momentum.
