BMI View: Sri Lanka ranks as the least attractive market in the Asia Pacific region. The rollout of a national broadband network by incumbent SLT offers some upside to growth by opening up access to broadband services and infrastructure. However, low returns are compounded by high risks, and smaller operators are struggling to survive in the market. Consolidation would benefit both consumers and industry players by forcing operators to place less emphasis on prices.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments
- More than 80% of mobile phone subscriptions remain prepaid, which limits the market for premium services, and average ARPU has not increased although 3G and 4G services have been launched as operators compete aggressively on price.
- Consolidation is likely in the mobile market with telecoms tax eroding operator revenues and consequently, Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) and Dialog Axiata are looking to acquire Hutchinson Lanka and Airtel, respectively.
- Dialog Axiata continues to dominate the mobile market with an estimated 44.6% share of subscriptions in Q415. Its merger with Airtel could consolidate its hold on the Sri Lankan mobile market.
