With the mobile penetration rate now falling, Kuwait's mobile operators are focusing on newways of generating revenue growth. All of Kuwait's mobile network operators have launched LTE services,thus stabilising average revenue per user over recent quarters, as well as improving their subscriber mix byoffering attractive data bundles on post-paid contracts. Kuwait's Ministry of Communications' movetowards fixed-line privatisation in Q116 could, if realised, enable the sector to attract investment and catchup with Gulf Cooperation Council standards of fibre connectivity.



Latest Updates And Industry Developments


- Monthly blended average revenue per user (ARPU) stabilised around USD23.5 in H116 followingseveral years of decline. Despite a boost from data services, ARPU will decline to USD22.6 by the end of2020.

- While the mobile market has been contracting to the level of Q214 with 7.1mn subscribers in Q216,efforts to migrate customers to higher-value services will result in strong growth in the 3G/4G market,where we project the number of subscriptions to rise to 5.4mn, or 76.2% of total mobile subscriptions, by2020.
