The Saudi mobile market is dynamic and consumers are looking for faster data services in the wireless and wireline markets alike. Nevertheless, the mobile market is very mature and is displaying classic signs of slowing down with penetration rates inching towards 180%. We believe that a significant number of inactive accounts may be present on operator books. Furthermore, organi c growth in terms of subscribe numbers will not be present in the market over the course of our forecast period. Nevertheless, we are optimistic that the strong investments by operato rs in enhancing their infrastru c tu re capabilities will help the market with growth opportunities. Additionally, e Enterprise solutions are becoming a main pillar for the l eading operators, with new data centres and business solutions popping up regularly. Still, overall competition is keeping ARPU down and the development of infrastructure in a country as vast as Saudi Arabia is quite expensive. While investing heavily into their fibre backbones, operators are therefore looking to improve the efficiency of their infrastructure and are aiming to outsource towers.
