New Study: UAE: Launch of Fixed Network Sharing Will Boost Competition and Help FTTx Adoption

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Jan 13 2016

With overall service revenue estimated at US$8.8bn in 2015, the UAE telecom market is one of the largest in AME, despite its relatively small population. The market is also one of the most developed, with considerable fiber and 4G network coverage. The relatively large market size in terms of revenue is in part due to high tariffs for services; for example, prices for mobile data services in the UAE are the highest in the Middle East. Despite a high mobile subscription population penetration rate of over 190% since 2013, over the next five years Pyramid Research expects UAE total market revenue to grow at a CAGR of 4.6%, to reach US$11.0bn in 2020. This will be largely driven by continued uptake in 4G services supporting mobile data revenue growth, and the continued uptake in FTTx broadband services within triple-play packages.

* Over the next five years, operators should seize opportunities in mobile data, fixed broadband, and IPTV services for the consumer segment, and concentrate on expanding ICT services such as M2M/IoT for the enterprise segment.
