DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/h3vlgr/developed) has announced the addition of the "Developed Asia-Pacific Telecoms Market: Interim Forecast Update 2014-2019" report to their offering.
Data-related revenue (such as mobile handset data, mobile and fixed broadband) will be the key growth drivers of telecoms service revenue in the mature and saturating Developed Asia-Pacific (DVAP) market. LTE and fixed broadband adoption is expected to increase across the region while voice and messaging will continue to decline.
This report and accompanying data annex provide:
- An interim update of our 5-year forecast of more than 100 mobile and fixed key performance indicators (KPIs) for the DVAP region, which was previously published in March 2014
- Revised forecasts based on the latest available data, which covers the period to June 2014
- An explanation of the significant changes in this edition, compared with our previous forecasts
- A extension of the forecast period to 2019.
Key Topics Covered:
- Executive summary
- Data-related telecoms revenue will continue to dominate the revenue mix and drive telecoms service revenue up to USD237 billion in 2019
- Growth in mobile handset data and broadband revenue will offset voice and messaging decline, resulting in a small growth in retail revenue
- Smartphones and LTE will account for 95% and 80% of handsets and mobile connections (excluding M2M) respectively in DVAP in 2019
- Key regional changes since our previous forecast: Mobile broadband, fixed broadband and IPTV revenue are expected to show stronger growth
- Forecast revision: Service revenue is revised down through 2019 because of currency impacts, and a data restatement because of new data in Japan
- Individual country forecasts
- Australia: 4G take-up and fixed broadband exceed expectation, while growth in mobile connections stalls (but ARPU is up)
- Hong Kong: 4G penetration of mobile connections continues to grow strongly, while IPTV connections growth has increased
- Japan: IPTV take-up will be higher than previously expected, while mobile voice revenue will decline further
- Singapore: Mobile handsets declined in 1H 2014, so 4G grows more slowly than anticipated; fibre broadband ARPU declines
- South Korea: FMC bundled services are driving IPTV growth, while smartphone connections growth suffers because of imposed bans
- Taiwan: 4G was launched ahead of schedule and take-up has been exceptional, far exceeding our previous estimates
