Indonesia: Country Intelligence Report

"Indonesia: Country Intelligence Report", a new Country Intelligence Report by GlobalData, provides an executive-level overview of the telecommunications market in Indonesia 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.

The telecom service revenue growth in Indonesia over 2017-2022 will be mainly driven by the mobile data and fixed broadband segments. Mobile data will continue to be the largest revenue-contributing segment through 2022, led by rising mobile Internet subscriptions, especially over smartphones and increasing M2M connections. Going forward, operators will focus on offering data-centric services and invest in network expansions and next-generation technologies such as LTE-A and 5G. The broadband segment will witness investments in FTTx technology, supported by government efforts to boost broadband penetration in the country, providing significant opportunities for vendors and investors in the coming years.

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

– Demographic and macroeconomic context in Indonesia.

– Mobile revenue will account for 87.4% of total telecom revenue in 2022, driven by increasing adoption of high-speed mobile Internet services.

– 3G will continue to be the most adopted mobile technology throughout the forecast period, while rising demand for high-speed data services and LTE network investments from operators will drive 4G subscription growth over the forecast period.
