2014-02-07 20:10:02 - Saudi Arabia Telecommunications Report Q1 2014 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
We now expect a more tempered subscriptions growth during our forecast period ending in 2017. This is partly because of slower than expected growth during the first nine months of the year, and partly because of recent Saudi government policy to reduce the country´s reliance on foreign workers.
According to local retailers of mobile handsets, their sales have nearly halved as a result of the policy. Analysts believe that it will also have a negative impact on total mobile subscriptions. However, we expect average prices to rise as a result.
- The mobile market grew by 0.3% quarter-on-quarter (q-o-q) in Q213 after three consecutive quarters of subscriber decline.
- Mobile ARPU was flat in Q213.
- The fixed-line market grew by 4.3% in
2012, driven by the residential segment.
- Total broadband subscriptions grew by 16.5% in 2012.
