Brief

Uruguay has one of the most developed economies in Latin America area, with an estimated PPP-adjusted GDP per capita of $21,050 in 2015, just below Chile ($22,720), Argentina (AR) ($22,170) and Panama ($21,750). Uruguay's telecoms market is also one of the most advanced in the region, despite having only partially liberalized the sector. Its high levels of development are the result of a series of ambitious government-led initiatives set to transform the country into a prosperous digital economy. Over the final different years, state-owned operator Antel has been prioritizing the roll out of next generation infrastructure containing comprehensive FTTH/B and LTE networks across the country, a Tier-III data center, and submarine fiber optic cables to improve worldwide links to countries in the region and North America continent.

Main highlights

- Uruguay's telecom and pay-TV market will generate $1.7bn in service revenue in 2015, up a mere 0.20 percent from 2014 in US dollar terms as a result of the depreciation of the Uruguayan peso as the increase in local currency will be 16.40 percent.

- The contribution of voice services to global telecom revenue will fall by more than 12.3 percentage points to 24.30 percent over the forecast period, while the contribution of data services (fixed and mobile) will expand from 46.0 percent in 2015 to 60.70 percent in 2020.

- Uruguay will close 2015 with 5.6m active mobile subscriptions and a penetration rate of 160.30 percent, well above the Latin American average (118.90 percent) and other mid-income countries in the region, including Chile (153.70 percent) and Argentina (AR) (145.0 percent). We project that Uruguay's mobile subscriber base will continue expanding during the 2015-2020 period, at a 2.40 percent Compound annual growth rate

- Antel will remain the biggest revenue contributor throughout the entire forecast period, thanks primarily to the lack of competition it faces in various top market segments and its ambitious infrastructure investment projects.

- Uruguay's fixed telecom market is one of the most developed in the region, with an estimated 30.2 fixed access lines per 100 inhabitants at year-end 2015, considerably above the regional average of 17.3. Broadband penetration will top 27.40 percent of the population at the end of 2015, the more important in the region and well above the average projected for Latin America area (11.80 percent).

- Uruguay will close 2015 with an estimated pay-TV household penetration rate of 55.10 percent, equating to 769,800 subscriptions, 40.0 percent of which are concentrated in the capital of Montevideo. Cable is the leading pay-TV technology in the sector, accounting for nearly 78.0 percent of all the pay-TV subscriptions. In terms of players, pan-American DTH/satellite operator DirecTV is currently Uruguay's leading pay-TV provider, with an estimated 22.60 percent market share as of year-end 2015; followed by Cablevision, with an estimated 17.80 percent share.
