Italy and Japan Telecommunications Industry Report Q2 2013

Italy Telecommunications Report Q2 2013

BMI View: Operators in Italy’s mobile and broadband markets faced considerable operating challenges in 2012, and the outlook remains challenging in the medium term. The local economy has entered recession and will likely lead to higher customer churn rates and customer winback/retention costs, even as the operators continue engaging in price wars focused on the mass consumer market and invest heavily in additional spectrum, to further 3G/3.5G/3.75G network infrastructure and begin developing their next generation 4G services. At the same time, further mobile termination rate (MTR) reductions hit operators’ revenues in 2012 and will again in early 2013, leaving them little room to manoeuvre. The main bright spot is in the value-added services (VAS) market, where consumption of non-voice services, particularly video and games, is booming.

Key Data

- Data from Vodafone and Telecom Italia show mobile ARPU declined sharply during2012, down 12.9% and 11.8% respectively y-o-y to Q412. A key factor was the implementation of steep MTR cuts in July 2012.
- Uptake of 3G subscriptions remained robust even in a difficult economic climate as consumer demand for smartphones drove growth. AGCOM reported 15.1% y-o-y growth in 3G subscriptions to the end of September 2012.

Japan Telecommunications Report Q2 2013

BMI View: Japan’s telecommunications industry has been important to the country’s development, playing a key role in driving economic growth by equipping consumers and businesses with a comprehensive network of fixed-line, mobile and broadband services. Although the country is facing an ageing population and limited subscriber growth potential, operators are able to maintain revenue growth through technological advancements as well as the constant introduction of new products and services. 4G, which is starting to gain traction, will play a vital role in the future.

Key Data:

- Mobile subscriptions have continued to increase, reaching 138.867mn by the end of 2012. BMI forecasts the mobile market will continue to expand, reaching 160.89mn subscriptions with penetration set to rise to 128% by 2017.
- LTE subscription growth has accelerated, with NTT DoCoMo data showing the net additions of 2.48mn LTE subscriptions in the three months to the end of December 2012. With KDDI and Softbank following NTT in launching services, we expect LTE will drive development of both the mobile and broadband market in the short-to-medium term.
