Summary
'Brazil: With Telecom Growth Slowing, Telcos Seek Mergers to Strengthen their Presence in Latin America's Largest Market,' a new Country Intelligence Report by Pyramid Research, offers a precise, incisive profile of Brazil's mobile and fixed telecommunications and pay-TV markets based on comprehensive proprietary data and insights from our research in the Brazil 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, mobile and pay-TV sectors, as well as a review of key regulatory trends.

Key Findings
- Brazil is the largest telecom services market in Latin America, with estimated revenue of US$60.1bn in 2014, a 3.1% decrease on the previous year, mainly as a result of a much weakened Brazilian real. If we assess revenue trends in local currency, the telecom services market in Brazil grew 3.2% in 2014. The market in Brazil faced pressure from a weak macroeconomic environment and a 25% cut in mobile termination rates (MTRs) in February 2014, which greatly affected operator financial results.
We expect to see overall service revenue grow at a 1.8% CAGR over the 2014-2019 period. Besides pay-TV, broadband Internet and mobile data will contribute to market growth.

- Further industry consolidation is on the horizon for the Brazil telecom services market. With the slowing of top-line growth and high operating expenses, Pyramid Research expects that a 4-to-3 mobile consolidation process will take place in the short term.

- With the mobile penetration rate reaching close to 140% in 2014, operators expect the further penetration of 3G and 4G handsets will contribute to higher mobile data revenue and offset ARPU pressure from MTR declines.
