Key Findings

The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) is one of the most mature telecom markets in the world with the highest Average Revenue Per User (ARPU). Since 2010, ARPU values have been declining marginally due to tumbling voice tariffs and greater competition. Data services have engulfed the market and the applications market has bloomed since the 3G telecom revolution.

- In a very competitive mobile market that is reaching saturation levels, operators are under high pressure to avoid being mere connectivity providers and allow application or content developers to capture a wallet share of their customers. Therefore, service providers have turned to Value-added Services (VAS) as a way to create new revenue sources, increase Average Revenue Per Line (ARPL), and reduce the churn rate.

- VAS market participants that have been growing more prominent in the market landscape by offering the latest high-tech and innovative applications have been supporting the operators’ drive.

- Mobile operators in the GCC region have been looking forward to provide more cutting-edge VAS offerings. Islamic content such as music, quotes, and so on have high adoption rates, followed by mobile music and video.

- Premium mobile content such as ringtones, caller ring back tunes, and music on demand remains widely popular across all regions, mainly among the youth.

- 3G-based VAS is expected to contribute significantly to VAS revenues with more content being created by VAS content generators and aggregators to tap into the market.
