Myanmar: Country Intelligence Report

Myanmar: Country Intelligence Report


Telecom service revenue growth in Myanmar over 2018-2023 will be driven by the mobile data and fixed broadband segment. Mobile data will be the largest revenue-contributing segment over 2018-2023 growing at a CAGR of 10.6%. The growth would be driven by proliferation of smartphone subscriptions and increasing adoption of 4G services with higher ARPU.

Going forward, operators will focus on offering data-centric services and invest in LTE/LTE-A infrastructure development and coverage expansion. Broadband segment will witness investments in FTTx technology, supported by the government's universal service strategy to boost broadband penetration in the country and providing significant opportunities for vendors and investors in the coming years.
