Saudi Arabia Telecom Services Industry Revenue to Reach USD 18.8 Bn by 2016, Says Pyramid Research in Its Study Published at

30 Jun 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – The Saudi Arabian telecom services industry is set to reach a total of 18.8 billion in revenue by 2016, an upsurge from 2015. Moving forwards, the country will see the revenue rising annually, with the fixed and mobile data segments acting as the primary growth drivers. Mobile data is poised to capture the lion’s portion of the overall telecom services sector revenue by 2020. Telecoms operators have a chance to gain from the opportunities present in offering VoIP, enterprise services, and mobile data.

The national telecom marketplace is likely to be led by incumbent Saudi Telecom Company (STC) as the key mobile and fixed line operator, with Mobily and Zain KSA following after. The intensification of the competition in the industry is anticipated to result in operators pouring money into network infrastructure and venturing into enterprise-centric IoT, M2M and cloud computing services.
