"Specialist business services will contribute the most to fixed revenue growth, accounting for 27% of fixed revenue (including pay TV) by 2024."

The fast pace of technological development, the continuous demand for speed upgrades and a high GDP per capita will help telecoms operators in developed Asia–Pacific (DVAP) to (at least partially) offset the effects of high competitive pressure and market saturation. 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.
