South Korea: Operator Investments in 5G and Fiber to Support Growth of IPTV and New Value-Added Services

Summary

"South Korea: Operator Investments in 5G and Fiber to Support Growth of IPTV and New Value-Added Services", is a new Country Intelligence Report by GlobalData, provides an executive-level overview of the telecommunications market in South Korea today, with detailed forecasts of key indicators up to 2021. 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, and mobile, as well as a review of key regulatory trends.

Telecom service revenue in South Korea is estimated to decline at a CAGR of -0.5% during 2016-2021, due to a decrease in overall voice revenue. Mobile data and fixed Internet growth will be driven by the growth in adoption of 4G/LTE and FTTx services, respectively. The pay-TV segment will witness the fastest growth in the country over the forecast period owing to high growth in the IPTV segment. Operators will continue to compete via network expansion and 5G trials, as well as VAS and IoT projects. KT is expected to launch trial 5G services during the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

The Country Intelligence Report provides in-depth analysis of the following - 
- Regional context: telecom market size and trends in South Korea compared with other countries in the region.
- Economic, demographic and political context in South Korea.

- Main opportunities: this section details the near-term opportunities for operators, vendors and investors in South Korea's telecommunications markets.

Scope

- Overall telecom service revenue in South Korea will decline at a CAGR of -0.5% during 2016-2021, mainly affected by declining voice revenue. Growth in the data services segment will also fail to offset declining voice services. The demand for high bandwidth online content and OTT services will be a key driver for the growth of mobile data in South Korea.
- Mobile revenue will account for 60.3% of total telecom revenue in 2021; mobile data will witness a CAGR of 1.5% during 2016-2021.
- The top two operators, KT and SK Telecom, accounted for 69.1% share of overall service revenue in 2016. We expect competition to intensify as operators are investing in 5G and fixed broadband.
