Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/12/2013 -- After a slow start to 2013, Bosnia's mobile market recovered in Q213, albeit with a marginal growth, to confirm our view of continued subscriptions growth on the back of regulatory measures aimed at boosting competition. We therefore retain our five-year growth forecast for the mobile sector, but caution regular inactive SIM discounting poses a downside risk to our outlook. The fixed-line market is benefiting from intense competition between the incumbent operators and alternative players. This is driving down prices and sustaining growth, especially in the broadband sector, despite increasing take-up of mobile voice and data services. As subscription growth slows across all services as a result of market saturation, we expect operators to ramp up high-value offerings such as multiplay services to boost value growth.

Key Data

- The mobile market grew by 0.4% q-o-q in Q213 to partially offset a decline of 2.8% in the previous quarter.
- Data from the regulator, CRA, showed Bosnia's fixed-line market to have declined faster in 2012 compared to 2011, with the rate of decline accelerating to 9.8% from 4.5% in 2011.
- We estimate a total of 601,000 broadband subscriptions at end-2012, up 14.7% y-o-y.
