BMI View: Bahrain's mobile and wireline telecoms sectors continue to display healthy levels of competition and measurable benefits for telecoms customers. Bahrain still generates the second most attractive returns for operators in the Middle East and North Africa region. The ability to offer fixed and mobile services allows operators to offer bundled services. However, the growth of the broadband market will be primarily driven by dedicated mobile broadband, supported by investments in 3G/4G infrastructure.

Latest Industry Trends & Developments
  • The mobile subscriber additions are unusually strong for a saturated market; the discounting of inactive SIMs is a downside risk to our growth forecasts. 3G/4G upgrades will underpin expansion over the next five years and beyond, accounting for 57.1% of the market by 2020.
  • Bahrain had 540,000 dedicated broadband internet connections at the end of 2015; this will rise to 720,000 subscriptions in 2020, of which a significant number will be fibre-based.
