Singapore Telecommunications Report Q1 2015: New research report available at Fast Market Research

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Dec 22 2014

Singapore continues to demonstrate its outperformance as the country continues to harbour growth opportunities due to consumers' high purchasing power and strong appetite for new products and services . In particular, 4G and fibre optics are growing rapidly and cannibalising subscriptions from older 3G, xDSL and cable technology. Its small geographic size lowers the burden of capital expenditures, and mobile penetration and blended average revenue per user (ARPU) are among the highest in the region . It has one of the smallest populations in the region, limiting its overall growth opportunities, and fierce competition between SingTel, M1 and StarHub is weighing on margins. However, it is also driving innovation and investment with new plans and services creating additional revenue streams in the industry.

Key Data:

* We forecast Singapore's mobile sector will grow by about 1% annually between 2013 and 2018, owing to the high penetration and a shift in operators' strategies.
* 4G subscribers reached 2.876mn in Q314, growing by 1.3mn over the year while 3G has declined by 575,000.
* The fixed-line market has started to contract earlier than we had expected, and we forecast the number of subscribers to decline to 1.7mn in 2018.
* Next generation fibre and LTE services are the future growth drivers for the Singaporean broadband industry, although we expect the growth momentum to be relative slow initially due to factors such as contract lock-in period. We forecast 11.5mn broadband subscribers in the country by end-2018.
