Indonesia - Mobile Infrastructure, Broadband, Operators - Statistics and Analyses

Indonesia's mobile market has displayed very strong over the last five years and particularly during 2016 to 2018. Growing use of mobile broadband has been a significant driver of this strong growth. The market has seen a strong increase in subscribers from the market leader Telkomsel, supported by very strong growth from XL Axiata and Indosat Ooredoo.

Industry consolidation is possible towards 2019 as intense data competition may force smaller and unprofitable mobile operators to be pushed out of the market. Industry consolidation is more likely to have a positive impact on the local telco sector as it will reduce the overcapacity in the market and bring more stability to data tariffs.

Mobile subscriber growth is expected to be relatively low over the next five years to 2022 as the market further matures in a highly competitive market. The market will be driven by the uptake of both 4G and 5G services.

Indonesia has seen a very rapid increase in mobile broadband penetration over the past five years. However the mobile broadband market is still at a relatively early stage of development. Strong growth is predicted over the next five years to 2022.

Key developments:

Telkomsel and Huawei held a live demo of 5G technology in Jakarta, which they claim is capable of producing data speeds of up to 70Gbps.

Industry consolidation is possible as intense data competition may force smaller mobile operators to be pushed out of the market.

Strong growth is predicted over the next five years to 2022 for the mobile broadband segment.
