Turkey: Country Intelligence Report


Turkey: Country Intelligence Report, a new Country Intelligence Report by GlobalData, provides an executive-level overview of the telecommunications market in Turkey today, with detailed forecasts of key indicators up to 2023. Published annually, the report provides detailed analysis of the near-term opportunities, competitive dynamics and evolution of demand by service type and technology/platform across the fixed telephony, broadband, mobile and pay-TV segments, as well as a review of key regulatory trends.

GlobalData expects Turkey's total telecommunications and pay-TV services revenue to reach $11.2bn in 2018. The total revenue will decline to $10.9bn by 2023, owing to declining ARPUs in mobile data, fixed services and pay-TV segments. However, in terms of local currency the revenue will increase at a CAGR of 5.6%, reflecting high inflation and depreciation of Lira. Revenue from mobile data, which is the highest contributing segment, will experience a sluggish growth rate of 0.7% (CAGR) over 2018-2023, owing to discounts promoted by operators to support disinflation in the country. Going forward, the government's National Broadband Strategy and Action plan (2017-2020) and investments by operators in 4G network expansion and development of 5G technology will bring growth in telecom market in Turkey.
