BMI View: Oman's telecoms markets are developing rapidly, with demand for data and value added services the fastest area of growth. Wireless data services have seen the strongest growth in terms of dedicated and voice and data subscriptions. Demand for smartphones has boosted subscription growth, while improved international connectivity is at the same time driving down the cost of services and deepening the market total subscriptions are also continuing to increase, with opportunities existing due to continued population growth. However, saturation will ultimately be reached over the medium term and we therefore expect operators to shift their strategy towards upselling higher value services to existing customers to sustain revenue growth.

Key Data
  • Mobile subscriptions increased to 5.622mn in Q413, equal to a penetration rate of 154.8%.
  • Fixed-line subscriptions continued to grow in 2013, up 15.4% in 2013 to 351,000.
  • Operators are under pressure from IP substitution of SMS services in favour of Whatsapp, Viber and other services. SMS volumes were down 46.7% y-o-y to 566mn in Q213.
