BMI View: Mobile data usage increased appreciably in the 2013/14 financial year and grew at an even faster rate in the period to March 2015. The rapid and widespread deployment of 3G/4G networks over the last 12 months lay the foundations for the emergence of a more content-focused industry, although continued reliance on low-cost prepaid services will continue to weigh on operators' bottom lines. The mobile market remains crowded while the wireline market is dominated by the incumbent, creating an imbalance of power. There are few opportunities for an infrastructure-focused new entrant, although there is a case to be made for the establishment of an advanced national broadband network under the aegis of a forthcoming new telecoms policy.

Key Data
  • There were 12.072mn 3G/4G mobile subscriptions in Pakistan at the end of March 2015, representing 8.9% of the total mobile market. We forecast subscriber numbers to grow to 76.783mn by 2019, or 48.8% of the market as operators push 'affordable' SIMs and devices.
  • ARPUs are expected to continue trending downwards due to the reliance on 2G services and rural expansion, as well as government-enforced network outages in light of security concerns.
