Malaysia: Country Intelligence Report
Published: June 27, 2018 Content info: 43 Pages

"Malaysia: Country Intelligence Report", a new Country Intelligence Report by GlobalData, provides an executive-level overview of the telecommunications market in Malaysia 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 Malaysia over 2017-2022 will be mainly driven by the mobile data, fixed broadband and pay-TV segments. Mobile data will be the largest revenue-contributing segment by 2022, led by a rise in consumption of online videos and social media content on smartphones. Going forward, operators will focus on offering data-centric packages and investing in high-speed data network expansions and next-generation technologies such as LTE-A and 5G. The broadband segment will witness the fastest growth over the forecast period with significant investments in FTTx technology, supported by government efforts to strengthen fixed broadband infrastructure and boost broadband penetration in the country.

The Country Intelligence Report provides in-depth analysis of the following -

  • Demographic and macroeconomic context in Malaysia.
  • The regulatory environment and trends: a review of the regulatory setting and agenda for the next 18-24 months as well as relevant developments pertaining to spectrum licensing, national broadband plans, tariff regulation and more.
  • Telecom and pay-TV services market outlook: analysis as well as historical figures and forecasts of service revenue from the fixed telephony, broadband, mobile voice, mobile data and pay-TV markets.
  • The competitive landscape: an examination of the positioning of leading players in the telecom and pay-TV services market as well as subscription market shares across segments.
  • Company snapshots: analysis of the financial position of leading service providers in the telecommunications and pay-TV markets.
  • Underlying assumptions behind our published base-case forecasts, as well as potential market developments that would alter, either positively or negatively, our base-case outlook.


  • Overall telecom service revenue in Malaysia will grow at a CAGR of 2.4% during 2017-2022.
  • Mobile revenue will account for 61.6% of total telecom revenue in 2022, driven by increasing adoption of high-speed mobile Internet services.
  • 4G will continue to be the most adopted mobile technology throughout the forecast period, driven by rising demand for high-speed data service and LTE network investments from operators.
  • The top three mobile operators, DiGi, Maxis and Celcom, accounted for 76.3% share of total mobile subscriptions at year-end 2017. We expect the competition to intensify further as operators focus on expanding rural coverage as well as improving their LTE network capacity.
