Brief

Puerto Rico is one of the most developed telecom markets in Latin America area, with service penetration rates above the regional average and technology adoption trends highly influenced by the mainland US market. With a challenging economic context ahead, we expect the Puerto Rican telecom market will experience very moderate growth throughout the forecast period, primarily driven by the mobile and fixed data segments. We project that from 2015 to 2020, telecom and pay-TV service revenue will increase at a 1.70 percent Compound annual growth rate, from $2.3bn in 2015 to $2.5bn in 2020.

Main highlights

- The Puerto Rican telecom market generated an estimated $2.3bn in telecom and pay-TV service revenue in 2015, 0.70 percent up on the previous year as a result of the island's difficult economic environment. With a challenging economic context ahead, we expect the telecom market to experience very moderate growth though the forecast period, expanding at a 1.70 percent Compound annual growth rate between 2015 and 2020, primarily driven by the mobile and fixed data segments.

- Competition in the Puerto Rican telecom and pay-TV market has intensified over the past five years, resulting in a wave of M&A that has significantly reduced the number of players in the fixed and pay-TV segments.

- Claro is currently the most important telecom player on the island, responsible for nearly 34.0 percent of the global revenue in the sector in 2015. The Pan-America operator currently offers mobile and fixed communications services as well as pay-TV services.

- Puerto Rico closed 2015 with an estimated 3.2m active mobile subscribers and a penetration rate of 92.20 percent, below the Latin American average (115.30 percent). As we move forward, we project that Puerto Rico's mobile subscriber base will continue expanding during the 2015-2020 period at a 0.80 percent Compound annual growth rate.

- Puerto Rico closed 2015 with a voice-line penetration of the population of 24.40 percent. Fixed broadband penetration of the population stood at 17.80 percent at the end of 2015, one of the more important in the region.

- Puerto Rico reached 694,400 pay-TV accounts and a household penetration rate of 56.50 percent at the end of 2015, above the Latin American average (42.10 percent). Liberty Global is currently Puerto Rico's biggest pay-TV service provider, followed by DTH/satellite operators DIRECTV, now part of ATandT, and Dish Puerto Rico, with estimated shares of 32.10 percent and 28.30 percent, respectively.
