Study: Spain's Mobile Date Revenue to Double by 2014

By Jyothi Shanbhag, TMCnet Contributor


Spain’s telecom market will see mobile data revenue double within the next five years, driven by an uninterrupted expansion of mobile data and Internet-based services, according to a new report published by Pyramid Research entitled, “Communications Markets in Spain”.
 
Pyramid Research has come out with this latest report which offers an incisive profile of the country's converged telecommunications, media, and technology sectors based on proprietary data from its research in the market.
 
Report provides detailed competitive analysis of both the fixed and mobile sectors, tracks the market shares of technologies and services, and monitors the introduction and spread of new technologies such as WiMax, IPTV (News - Alert), and VoIP.
 
The Spanish telecom market has changed considerably since the liberalization of its mobile market in 1995 and of its fixed line market in 1998. Telecom service revenues have grown steadily since the 1990s, rising from US$17.9 billion in 1999 to US$42.5 billion in 2004.
 
In 2008 the country’s telecom market generated US$42.9 billion, accounting for 11.7 percent of the total telecom service revenue generated in 2008 by the ten largest markets in Western Europe, notes Stela Bokun, analyst at Pyramid Research and author of the report.
 
According to Stela Bokun, Telecom revenue will grow faster, driven by an uninterrupted expansion of mobile data services and Internet-based services allowing mobile data revenue to double from $4.1 billion in 2009 to $8.3 billion in 2014.
 
Stela Bokun said that, Spain is likely to suffer a more pronounced economic slowdown through the first half of 2010 due to the global economic crisis; it will record higher GDP growth rates through 2014 than most other markets in the region.
 
"Mobile data ARPS, which accounted for 15 percent of the total in 2008, will grow considerably over the next five years, accounting for 28 percent of the total ARPS in 2014," she adds.
 
As the telecom research arm of the Light Reading Communications Network, Pyramid Research works with Heavy Reading, and claims to provide the communications industry's most comprehensive market data, trusted research and insightful technology analysis.
