    Saudi Arabia: Mobile Network Upgrades, Fiber Expansion and Digital Transformation to Remain Key Focus Areas for Operators

    Summary

    "Saudi Arabia: Mobile Network Upgrades, Fiber Expansion and Digital Transformation to Remain Key Focus Areas for Operators", is a new Country Intelligence Report by Publisher, provides an executive-level overview of the telecommunications market in Saudi Arabia today, with detailed forecasts of key indicators up to 2022. Published annually, the report provides detailed analysis of the near-term opportunities, competitive dynamics and evolution of demand by service type and technology/platform across the fixed telephony, broadband, mobile voice, mobile data and pay-TV markets, as well as a review of key regulatory trends.

    The telecom service revenue in Saudi Arabia is estimated to expand at a CAGR of 4.2% during 2017-2022, due to growth in mobile data and fixed broadband segments. Growing consumption of data services backed by proliferation of 4G services and growing investments in fixed Internet infrastructure will be the key factors behind the growth. Pay-TV revenue will show considerable growth with DTH being the largest segment. The overall telecom service market will be dominated by STC and Mobily through 2022. The grant of unified licenses to Zain KSA and Mobily will increase competition in the market. The country's digital transformation initiatives supported by KSA Vision 2030 and the accompanying NTP will open up further opportunities for operators, vendors and investors.
