Kuwait Telecommunications Report Q2 2018
The Kuwaiti mobile market is highly saturated, and the latest results from 9M17 suggest that the market contractedfaster than anticipated. We downgraded our forecast last quarter to account for the nine straight quarters of net subscribercontractions. The market lost 411,000 subscribers in FY16 and an estimated 703,000 additional mobile subscribers in the 9M17period. We believe the losses are due to the inactive prepaid SIM cards present in the market, so virtually no organic growth ispossible in the mature segment. Premium 4G packages will drive most growth in the mobile market until 5G has a mass-marketbusiness case, and the potential liberalisation process of the wireline market could further attract higher degrees of investment inthe fibre domain.
