In connection with the stagnation on the market of telecommunications services in Poland operators are focusing increasingly on the value-added and multimedia segment. Their action centres around the payTV segment and various types of value-added services in mobile telephony, including mobile internet. 

In 2012 the value-added and multimedia services market in Poland saw a continuation of the growth trends it enjoyed in previous years. According to the PMR report “The value-added ad multimedia services market in Poland 2013. Development forecasts for the years 2013-2017”, in 2012 operators’ revenues from value-added services in mobile and fixed-line telephony and the mobile internet and payTV segment were 7% higher than a year previously, which took them over the PLN 10 billion mark.

The biggest segment of the value-added and multimedia services market in Poland is the payTV segment. In 2012 this accounted for around two-thirds of the whole value-added and multimedia services market, and as such, of all such services, the impact of the performance of this segment on the wider telecoms market in Poland is the greatest. “There is a significant disproportion between the speed of growth in value of the telecoms services and the payTV markets. The value of payTV services is consistently rising robustly, while the telecommunications services market, following a slump in 2009, has spent the last three years mired in stagnation. This has meant that the payTV market has had a positive influence on the three major segments of the telecommunications market in Poland – internet, mobile telephony, and fixed-line telephony,” says Zoran Vuckovic, one of the authors of the report.

Unlike the telecoms services segment, the payTV market resisted the shrinkage even of the crisis year 2009, when it notched up almost an 12% increase in value. As such, then, the significant and steadily growing interest among telecoms operators in this segment is hardly surprising. Market integration is a two-way process. On the one hand telecommunications operators add payTV services to their product portfolios, while on the other, companies offering payTV services expand their product mixes to include services such as internet access, mobile telephony, and VoIP. This integration of the payTV and telecoms services market has grown into a major trend over the past few years. The  telecommunications and multimedia services markets are growing closer and closer together, giving rise to a broader umbrella category that also includes payTV services.

The market for value-added and multimedia services does not stop with payTV, however. Another segment, which has been growing steadily for a number of years now and is having an increasingly strong impact on mobile operators’ revenues (in the situation of falling MTR rates), is mobile internet. Importantly, though, owing to the shrinking prices of services in 2012, the value growth of this segment proved much lower than a year previously, in spite of steady growth in numbers of new users. Another major source of revenues for mobile operators is value-added services of various types, such as mobile music and GPS apps, and payment by mobile.
