Summary
Pyramid Research estimates the telecom services revenue in Oman to reach $1.7bn in 2015. This is however, relatively smaller than the other GCC countries such as Saudi Arabia ($18.2bn), Qatar ($2.3bn) and Kuwait ($2.7bn). The Omani telecom market is quite dynamic relative to GCC countries with the presence of two MNOs (Omantel and Ooredoo Oman) and two MVNOs (FRiENDi and Renna). Over the next five years, Pyramid Research expects Omani telecom services revenue to grow at a CAGR of 6.5%, to reach $2.4bn in 2020. Growth will be driven by operators' focus on 4G expansion, fiber rollouts and the Oman Broadband Company's efforts to improve fixed connectivity.

Key Findings
- Pyramid Research expects to see overall service revenue grow at a 6.5% CAGR from 2015 to 2020 owing to significant growth in the mobile data, fixed VoIP and fixed broadband segments. The fixed/mobile revenue split will continue to be dominated by the mobile segment, but revenue from fixed will grow to contribute to 26.6% of total service revenue in 2020, up from 22.8% in 2015. Government investments in fiber-optic rollouts as part of the National Broadband Strategy will drive this growth.

- The top two operators, Omantel and Ooredoo Oman, which provide fixed and mobile services, will account for 97.8% of overall service revenue in 2015. Both operators will focus on 4G network expansions having acquired additional 4G spectrum in 2015. TeO has also announced its intention to launch as an MVNO and provider of fixed VoIP services, though no confirmed dates have been announced. This could ramp up competition in a marketplace dominated by Omantel and Ooredoo Oman.

- Over the next five years, operators should seize opportunities arising from the growth of mobile data and fixed broadband segments by offering multiplay services. Operators also need to develop a range of managed services and cloud offerings to tackle opportunities in the B2B segment. Vendors should position themselves to support operators' 4G network expansion plans by providing consulting services and hardware necessary to upgrade and build new base stations.
