Belgium: Country Intelligence Report

Summary
Belgium is the seventh most populated country in Western Europe with a population of 11.4m as of 2017. We expect the population to grow at a CAGR of 0.5% over the 2017-2022 periods to reach 11.7m by 2022 driven by increase in life expectancy and immigration. Belgium’s nominal GDP will reach US$469.5bn in 2017, a 0.5% growth over 2016. Belgium will experience higher growth over the next two years led by an accommodative fiscal stance and rise in private consumption to reach $563.4bn by 2022, a 4.7% CAGR over 2017-2022.

Telecom services revenue in Belgium is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 2.3% during 2017-2022, primarily driven by rising smartphone adoptions, increasing OTT consumption as well as high-speed LTE connectivity. Mobile data will be the largest revenue-contributing and fastest-growing segment, followed by fixed broadband. Both are estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% and 2.5%, respectively, during 2017-2022. Going forward, operators should continue to focus on network investments and upgrades, particularly expanding 4G networks, and invest in 5G trials. Government plans to extend at least 30Mbps broadband speed to 100% of households by 2020 will open ample opportunities for operators in the market in coming years.

Belgian telecom services revenue will reach $6.6bn (€6.2bn) by the end of 2017, a slight growth of 0.8% over 2016 in local currency. The revenue will decline by 0.2% in 2018 before recovering in 2019 and posting 0.7% CAGR in € over 2017-2022. While decline in voice and messaging revenue will squeeze overall revenue growth, steady rise in demand for fixed broadband and robust growth projections for mobile data adoption will sustain revenue growth over the 2017-2022 forecast periods.

Mobile subscription penetration will grow from an estimated 137.3% in 2017 to 176.4% by 2022. The growth in subscription penetration over the forecast period will be facilitated mostly by gradual rise in adoption of M2M communications.
