Middle East: Mobile Network Operators & MVNOs, 2019 – Growth Opportunities Exist for Mobile Operators in the Middle East – ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Middle
East – Mobile Network Operators and MVNOs”
report has been
added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The Middle East mobile market offers opportunities for growth due to its
large populations and increasingly progressive outlook. However, there
are vast differences between the various countries.

Some markets have significant mobile penetration and are looking towards
mobile broadband for growth – while other markets face more challenging
issues with infrastructure destruction and civil tension inhibiting
current growth.

This report provides comprehensive insights and statistics into the
mobile markets of the Middle East and includes the countries of Bahrain,
Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia,
Syria, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and Yemen.

The Middle East is earmarked as a region which will experience
comparatively high mobile subscription growth in some of its markets
over the next few years – compared to many of the more developed and
saturated markets around the world. This is expected to be led by the
largely populated countries of Turkey, Iran and Iraq which still have
room for mobile subscription growth to occur.

5G is also firmly on the agenda for many markets in the Middle East,
particularly in the GCC countries. Operators are busy deploying 5G
technologies in anticipation of 5G and the introduction of devices,
spectrum allocation and regulatory approval will eventually push these
developments along faster.

The Middle East is benefitting from a number of pan-regional operators
such as Etisalat, Vodafone and Orange which are bringing valuable
expertise to the region and complement the local efforts of strong
domestic players such as Batelco, Umniah, Turkcell and VIVA, just to
name a few. 4G LTE is already heavily deployed in many markets and the
operators are turning to increase mobile broadband usage in order to
grow revenues.

In some Middle Eastern markets, however; there are unique challenges
relating to civil unrest which has hindered mobile progress. The
operators in countries like Yemen and Syria, for example, face more
challenging issues relating to infrastructure destruction, security
concerns, economic pressure and humanitarian crises.

This report provides valuable information, analyses and statistics into
the mobile operators in markets of the Middle East and includes the
countries of Bahrain, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman,
Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and Yemen.

This annual publication also incorporates the publisher’s Middle East
Telecoms Maturity Index’ (TMI). This is an index (on a scale between 0%
and 100%) which measures and ranks the relative maturity of the telecoms
industries in 12 countries in the region (Syria and Yemen have been
excluded from the index at this time).

The Index has been devised as a tool to compare the different markets
easily and uniformly. Countries have been placed into Market Leaders,
Market Challengers or Market Emergents categories according to their
Market Index score. Countries are compared according to a number of
parameters with a focus on fixed broadband and mobile broadband
penetration.

GDP is also included in a number of charts both for illustrative
purposes and as a gauge to help decipher market maturity. However, a
number of countries low on the Index scale are noted for the
considerable effort still required in terms of market investment,
regulatory oversight and effective government-sponsored direction. Given
the poor condition of the telecoms market in these countries, they have
not been placed into either category.

Recent Developments:

  • Many mobile operators in the Middle East have formed partnerships in
    order to develop and progress 5G readiness.
  • Mobile finger-printing and bio-metric registration laws have impacted
    upon mobile subscriber growth and revenue in many Middle Eastern
    markets.
  • Mobile data is growing faster than voice in many Middle Eastern
    markets.
  • High taxes are of concern to some mobile operators in the Middle East.
  • The awarding of Universal licenses and easing of roaming regulations
    is assisting to create competition in some markets.
  • The adoption of smartphones is expected to increase.
