Uganda Telecommunications Report Q4 2014, New Report Launched

Market Research Reports, Inc. has announced the addition of “Uganda Telecommunications Report Q4 2014” research report to their offering.


Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/30/2014 -- The change s in market dynamics in Uganda's mobile sector, with market consolidation and the entry of new players, will boost competition and attract much needed capital into the sector. This will drive subscriptions growth in the short term through competitive pricing and network expansion to underserved areas. That said, we retain our view that rolling out high value services will remain the main objective of the country's major players as they aim to create new revenue streams and offset the impact of declining growth from traditional services.

Market ARPU in Uganda has been below USD4 since 2011, dragging on operators' revenue and profit growth, thus limiting their ability to reinvest in network upgrades and expansion. Publisher believes consolidation would help mitigate further price erosion in the market and enable larger operators to reach greater operational efficiencies and scale in the maintenance and expansion of their networks.

Key Data
- The mobile market grew by 3.3% q-o-q and 17.4% y-o-y in Q214.

- Fixed-line subscriptions fell sharply in 2013 following a contraction of 36.5%.

Risk/Reward Rating
Uganda dropped one place to 15th position in Publisher's latest RRR table, although its aggregate score remained unchanged at 41.2 out of 100. Uganda continues to outperform many of its peers in the country risks category, which reflects a positive real private consumption growth outlook during our five-year forecast period to 2018. Uganda also scored above average in the Industry Rewards category, as a penetration rate below 60% means its mobile market is likely to continue rapid growth throughout the whole of our forecast period.

Key Trends And Developments
