[UKPRwire, Mon Mar 02 2015] 'Taiwan: Higher Mobile Interconnection Charges and Falling Voice Tariffs Will Offset Increasing Data Services Revenue' a new Country Intelligence Report by Pyramid Research, offers a precise, incisive profile of Taiwan's mobile and fixed telecommunications and mobile markets based on comprehensive proprietary data and insights from our research in the Taiwan market. Published annually, this presentation-quality, executive-level report provides detailed analysis of the near-term opportunities, competitive dynamics and evolution of demand by service type and technology/platform across the fixed telephony, broadband and mobile sectors, as well as a review of key regulatory trends.
* In 2014, Taiwan's telecommunication market generated service revenue of US$11.7bn or 2.3% of country's GDP. The mobile voice and mobile data segments are the largest contributors to telecom service revenue, accounting for 66.6% of service revenue in 2014. However, despite increasing demand for high-speed data services, service revenue will decline gradually over the forecast period. Pyramid Research projects Taiwan's revenue from telecom services will decline to $10.8bn by 2019. The regulator-mandated voice tariff reduction and mobile interconnection charges continue to be a drag on telecom service revenue.
* Pyramid Research projects overall service revenue to decline at a 1.7% CAGR from 2014 to 2019. The fixed/mobile revenue split will be inclined toward mobile services over the forecast period. Increasing competition in the mobile data space will drive operators to offer innovative data packages at competitive prices and to invest in network upgrades to increase their subscriber base.
* Taiwan's telecom market has remained stable over the past few years. The top two operators, Chunghwa Telecom and Taiwan Mobile, offering fixed, broadband, pay-TV and mobile services, are expected to account for 61.0% of total service revenue in 2014. Chunghwa Telecom is the market leader in IPTV, fixed and mobile markets while China Network Systems (CNS) leads the cable TV segment. The telecom market is expected to remain highly competitive over the next five years as operators enter into strategic partnership to strengthen their market position.
* Adoption of 3G technologies peaked at 97.1% of the mobile subscription base in 2013; this will decline to 17.5% in 2019 due to growing availability of 4G/LTE networks and LTE-enabled smartphones. LTE subscriptions will reach 26.6m by 2019, 81.0% of total mobile subscriptions in Taiwan.
