  4. > Bulgaria: LTE Launch and Rural Broadband Expansion to Drive Telecom Market Growth

Summary
Bulgaria's telecom service market generated an estimated US$1.7bn in revenue in 2013; Pyramid Research expects it to grow at a CAGR of 1.7% from 2013 to 2018. In both the fixed and mobile segments, growth will be driven by data services, which we expect to increase at a CAGR of 6.3% from 2013 to 2018. Cumulative service revenue over the period will come to $4.2bn. We expect fixed broadband to grow faster, helped by a national broadband plan aiming to expand access to rural areas. By 2018, fixed broadband service will contribute almost as much to overall telecom revenue as mobile data service.

Key Findings
Bulgaria is one of the smaller telecom service markets in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). Estimated at US$1.7bn in 2013, its revenue closely follows that of Slovakia in size. At an estimated CAGR of 1.7% from 2013 to 2018, revenue in Bulgaria's telecom market will grow only slowly, but growth will be concentrated in individual market segments rather than spread throughout the whole telecom sector. In both the fixed and mobile segments, growth will be driven by data services, which we expect to increase at a CAGR of 6.3% between 2013 and 2018; cumulative service revenue over the same period will come to $4.2bn. We expect fixed broadband to grow faster, helped by a national broadband plan that aims to expand access to rural areas. We project that by 2018, fixed broadband service will contribute almost as much to overall telecom revenue as mobile data service.
