"Growth in mobile handset and fixed broadband retail revenue will be modest in the DVAP region over the forecast period."

Technological developments, a good economic outlook and high GDP per capita in developed Asia–Pacific (DVAP) will result in revenue growth in almost all service segments apart from traditional voice services. In this report, we examine key trends and drivers, and provide comprehensive telecoms market forecasts for the region and for seven individually modelled countries.

This report and associated data annex provide:

  • a 5-year forecast of more than 180 mobile and fixed KPIs for the DVAP region as a whole and for seven key countries
  • an in-depth analysis of the trends, drivers and forecast assumptions for each type of mobile and fixed service, and for key countries
  • an overview of operator strategies and country-specific topics, in order to highlight similarities and differences by means of a cross-country comparison
  • a summary of results, key implications and recommendations for mobile and fixed operators.
