Uruguay: Country Intelligence Report

Uruguay: Country Intelligence Report


Total telecommunications and pay-TV services revenue in Uruguay will decline from $1.6 billion in 2018 to $1.4 billion by 2023. While the depreciation of Uruguayan peso against the US dollar will have an adverse affect on our revenue projections in US dollar terms, the market will show a growth in local currency (UYU). Our estimations indicate that the overall revenue will increase at a CAGR 2.0% from UYU48.0 billion in 2018 to UYU53.0 billion in 2023, supported by mobile data, fixed broadband, and pay-TV segments.
