Egypt: Country Intelligence Report
Published: May 31, 2018 Content info: 42 Pages

"Egypt: Country Intelligence Report", a new Country Intelligence Report by GlobalData, provides an executive-level overview of the telecommunications market in Egypt today, with detailed forecasts of key indicators up to 2022. 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, mobile and pay-TV segments, as well as a review of key regulatory trends.

Telecom service revenue growth in Egypt through 2017-2022 will be driven by the mobile data, fixed broadband and pay-TV services segments. Mobile voice will be the largest revenue-contributing segment until 2021, with its share of total revenue to decline to 38.9% in 2022. The mobile data segment, however, will surpass mobile voice as the leading revenue contributor in 2022. Mobile data revenue will grow at a CAGR of 32.9% over 2017-2022 to reach $1.8bn by the end of 2022, aided by the continuing expansion of 4G services and the growing adoption of smartphones, data bundles and value-added services. Operator focus on expanding 4G network and government investments in fiber-optic networks will boost mobile and fixed broadband markets, respectively.
