Research and Markets: Latin America Telecoms Market: Trends and Forecasts 2015-2020

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/qtz2rk/latin_america) has announced the addition of the "Latin America Telecoms Market: Trends and Forecasts 2015-2020" report to their offering.

LTE take-up is accelerating in most markets in Latin America (LATAM) thanks to increasing handset availability, attractive packages during the latest Christmas campaign and further network roll-out. In Brazil, 4G net additions reached 700,000 in 4Q 2014 (their highest level), while in Colombia 4G adoption accelerated significantly during the past three quarters. We forecast that LTE will account for 19% of mobile SIMs in LATAM by 2020.

Mobile revenue will continue to grow in all markets - albeit slowly, as competition intensifies. Several markets are quite dynamic in terms of M&A and network deployment (of cable, fibre and LTE) and competition is intensifying as new MVNOs enter the market (particularly in Brazil, Chile and Colombia). MTR cuts in Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico will intensify price pressure. Substitution of traditional services by over-the-top (OTT) alternatives is strong in Brazil and will accelerate in markets with high smartphone take-up (such as Argentina, Chile and Mexico).

This report and associated data annex provide:

- A 5-year forecast of more than 100 mobile and fixed KPIs for the LATAM region as a whole and seven key countries

- An in-depth analysis of the trends, drivers and forecast assumptions for each type of mobile and fixed service, and for key countries

- An overview of operator strategies and country-specific topics, in order to highlight similarities and differences by means of a cross-country comparison

- A summary of results, key implications and recommendations for mobile and fixed operators

These forecasts are informed by on-the-ground regional market experts from our topic-led research programmes and consulting division, as well as external interviews.

In addition to our robust set of historical data, our forecasts draw on a unique and in-house modelling tool, which applies a rigorous methodology (reconciliation of different sources, standard definitions, top-down and bottom-up modelling).
