Telecom service revenue in Mauritius will grow at a CAGR of 2.3%. Growth in the market will be primarily driven by mobile data and fixed broadband services. Mobile voice will be the largest revenue-generating segment in 2017 with 40.4% of total service revenue for the year. However, mobile voice services will see steady decline in revenue, as more users switch over to OTT-based voice solutions.
Mobile data will become the largest revenue contributor by 2022, accounting for one-third of the total service revenue market. Mobile data will also be the fastest-growing segment with revenue to increase at a CAGR of 9.8% over the forecast period. Increasing smartphone subscriptions and the rising adoption of 3G/4G technologies for video, OTT and other data services will drive growth in mobile data revenue.
Fixed broadband market will see a CAGR of 5%+ during 2017-2022, led by fiber expansion projects initiated by operators such as Mauritius Telecom, which invested MRs5.1bn for expanding FTTH connectivity to the entire nation by the end of 2017.
Mobile subscription penetration in Mauritius will increase from an estimated 147.7% in 2017 to 169.3% in 2022. This is mostly due to a growth in smartphones, connected data devices and M2M subscriptions. With estimated 1.9m mobile subscriptions by year-end 2017, Mauritius is one of the smallest mobile markets in the Africa & Middle East region. Over the next five years, mobile operators will add a combined 0.3m subscriptions, bringing Mauritius’s total mobile subscriptions to 2.1m by year-end 2022.
