BMI View:

We have made some minor forecast revisions in this quarterly update, but continue to hold our core view for the Iranian telecommunications market. BMI expects the mobile segment to continue growing in the short term due to the increased accessibility of 3G and 4G services as well as the entrance of MVNOs into the market. The wireline segment will grow albeit slowly as BMI forecasts a growing preference for mobile over fixed solutions.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments



- Removal of sanctions in January 2016 should encourage increased foreign direct investment into Iran, with BMI’s Country Risk team predicting GDP to rise from 3.8% in 2016 to around 4% in 2020.

- Since the launch of 3G and 4G data services, the Iranian mobile market has experienced strong growth year-on-year (y-o-y) and total mobile subscribers are expected to reach 137.3mn subscribers in 2020, peaking at 140.1mn in 2018.

- Growth in the wireline segment will be subdued due to increases in the availability of mobile services; 32.6mn fixed lines are expected to be in service in 2020, up slightly from 30.8mn in 2016.
