BMI View: 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.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

? The mobile user base expanded by 9.7% in 2015, versus 10.8% in 2014. We now estimate that the

market will end 2016 with 4.86mn mobile subscribers, rising to 5.42mn at the end of our forecast period

in 2020.

? Qatar ranks third in our Risk/Reward Index for the Middle East and North Africa, with a score of 59.0

compared to a regional average of 46.1. With the economy reliant on oil and gas exports, the ongoing

slump in global energy prices could eventually pose downside risks to the country's growth outlook.

  • Uganda Telecommunications Report Q1 2017
    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 59
    BMI View: We hold our positive view for the Ugandan mobile market in Q117 quartly report update, based on the faster tha expected growth in the first half of 2016, following losses due to the mandatory SIM registrations in H215. Mobile market growth will be supported by low penetration rates currently around 56. Although, operators continue to make investments in advanced data networks, MFS is likely to remain the primary key VAS in the mobile market as traction in the ta......
  • Rwanda Telecommunications Report Q1 2017
    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 66
    BMI View: We have made some modest forecast revisions to account for the latest data from H116 but our crucial outlook remains unchanged. BMI holds the opinion that Rwanda has a competitive mobile telephony market with three network operators MTN, Tigo and Airtel helping to drive subscriber growth. In addition, growing demand for data services and the availability of new low-cost internet-enabled devices should positively impact on 3G and 4G subscriber uptake, as well as ......
  • Japan Telecommunications Report Q1 2017
    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 67
    BMI View: We have made minor forecast adjustments to account for the latest data for the period up to September 2016 but our core outlook for the Japanese mobile market remains unchanged in our Q1 2017 report update. Japan's mature telecommunications industry is characterised by high-speed internet connections. Operators have enjoyed success in pursuing multi-device strategies due to a high appetite for advanced technology and digital applications. However, the country's ......
  • India Telecommunications Report Q1 2017
    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 81
    BMI View: The disconnection between the Indian government, regulators and operators is more apparent than ever following the latest spectrum auction. Extremely high reserve prices deterred bidders already being undermined by price competition, a situation exacerbated by Reliance Jio's launch of ultra low-cost 4G services. Meanwhile sluggish expansion of wireline broadband is linked to the stalled momentum of state-owned players. The best investment opportunities therefore......
  • Europe Telecommunications Report Q1 2017
    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 43
    BMI View: Despite differences between the more developed Western European markets and the emerging markets of Central and Eastern Europe, the overall strategies of the various operators in the region remain the same, albeit at different stages. As the potential for organic growth is limited, operators aim to migrate customers to more advanced plans and upsell new services as part of a convergent strategy. Competition will focus on services rather than networks, but these ......
  • Congo-Brazzaville, Congo, Dem Rep and Burundi Telecommunications Report Q1 2017
    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 101
    BMI View: SIM registration implemented at the end of 2015 has severely affected subscriber numbers in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as 9.2mn SIMs were deactivated over the last three quarters. Still, the market is underserved and holds potential for growth. We believe that limited subscriber uptake in rural areas of Congo-Brazzaville means that subscription growth will tick modestly upwards for the duration of our forecast period to 2020. Burundi's mobile market is......

    Published: 30-Nov-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 65
    BMI View: We have made some minor forecast revisions but our outlook remains largely unchanged in the Q117 report update. The mobile market is nearing saturation and organic growth prospects will be diminished going forward. Nevertheless, the new regulator is taking an investor-friendly approach to market development, although further reforms are still needed. Mobile subscription growth has stalled and the ability for operators to embrace converged services could not come......
