This report profiles Indonesia's telecommunication industry, discussing market trends through 2014 and outlook for 2015 and beyond. The report also highlights leading players in the sector including PT Telekomunikasi (Persero) Indonesia Tbk, PT Indosat Tbk and PT XL Axiata Tbk.
The telecommunication industry has played an important role in the development of Indonesia's economy over the last few years. Not only has it increased connectivity across the country, it has also helped in stimulating other sectors of the economy like banking, finance, software, hospitality and trade. The telecommunication sector in Indonesia comprises several segments, namely mobile cellular services, fixed line services, internet and broadband services, and network infrastructure services. As of 2013, Indonesia was the world's third largest telecommunication market in terms of mobile cellular subscribers, after China and India.
2014 was a tough year for the industry because of lower subscriber growth, fall in voice average revenue per user (ARPU) and forex losses. It was also a year of industry consolidation accompanied by retreat of CDMA operators. Data, internet and broadband services accounted for a substantial portion of operators' revenue in the year. 2015 looks to be more promising with estimated industry growth of around 7-8%, according to the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology. Going forward, Indonesia's young population and rising per capita income, coupled with an increase in smartphone penetration and data speeds, will add to the growth of this sector.
