Published: Dec-2014 | Format: PDF | Pyramid Research | Number of pages: 31 | Code: MRS - 2388

‘Singapore: As Country Transforms into a Smart Nation, Operators Focus on Network Deployment to Reap the Benefits of 4G,’ a new Country Intelligence Report by Pyramid Research, offers a precise, incisive profile of Singapore’s mobile and fixed telecommunications and mobile markets based on comprehensive proprietary data and insights from our research in the Singaporean market. Published annually, this presentation-quality, executive-level 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 sectors, as well as a review of key regulatory trends.

Key Findings

In 2014, Singapore’s telecommunication service market will generate estimated revenue of $5.1bn, up 2.8% from 2013. The market is one of the most mature and saturated in the Asia-Pacific region but comparatively small given Singapore’s population of 5.5m in 2014. Still, Singapore’s telecommunications market is expected to grow at a stable pace as compared with other developed markets in the region over the forecast period. We expect mobile and broadband Internet access services to be key growth contributors to service revenue. Pyramid Research estimates Singapore’s revenue from telecom services to reach $5.8bn by 2019.

  • Singapore’s telecom services market is a consolidated market dominated by three integrated players. The top three operators, SingTel, StarHub and M1, offering fixed, broadband, pay-TV and mobile services, are expected to account for 98.0% of total service revenue in 2014. SingTel is the market leader in IPTV, fixed and mobile markets, while StarHub controls the cable TV segment and is also trying to make inroads into the IPTV segment. The telecom market is expected to remain competitive, though we expect no major changes in operators’ market shares over the next five years. 
  • Adoption of 3G technologies peaked at 72.4% of the mobile subscription base in 2012; we project this will decline to 12.0% in 2019 due to growing availability of 4G/LTE networks and LTE-enabled smartphones. LTE subscriptions are expected to reach 8.0m or 88.0% of total mobile subscriptions in Singapore by 2019.
  • Over the next five years, operators should strengthen their portfolio of service offerings after the additional distribution of spectrum in the 1800MHz and 2500MHz bands, as this would boost operator initiatives for launching LTE services, as they gain confidence about their spectrum holding. With increasing adoption of LTE in the market and broadband penetration incentives from the government, device vendors and network equipment manufacturers will have plenty of opportunities for growth alongside operators.
