BMI View: Oman is home to developed and dynamic telecoms markets, with strong growth in mobile, fixedline and internet sectors continuing throughout 2012. We attribute this to strong private consumption growth, driven by the Omani government's expansionary budget and increases in public sector wages. While there are a number of positives, the market is limited by the country's small population size and is approaching saturation for some services, notably basic voice (fixed and mobile) services. We therefore expect operators to shift their strategy towards up-selling higher-value services to existing customers in order to sustain revenue growth.

Key Data
  • Mobile subscriptions increased by 9.7% in 2012 to reach a total of 5.278mn and penetration of 181.7%.
