There is already a requirement for new submarine capacity within the Caribbean region and a lack of capacity specifically designed to handle intra-regional Latin American traffic. These are the conclusions of Pioneer Consulting’s New Business Models for the Caribbean and Latin American Submarine Cable Industry report which analyzes the supply-demand balances in each of 40 countries.

Government-sponsored initiatives including privatization, market liberalization, and the establishment of “e-zones” are encouraging new entrants, increasing competition, and stimulating demand for broadband Internet connectivity and international private leased circuits (Iplc’s) in both regions. New players also bring new business models. Pioneer’s report weighs up the pro’s and cons of various models for submarine cable construction and operation.

“This has been a fascinating exercise to understand the dynamics of two regions which are at slightly different stages of market liberalization,” said Julian Rawle, Senior Market Analyst at Pioneer Consulting. “While Latin American markets in general are already open to competition, Caribbean states are in the process of breaking down incumbents’ monopolies. Our country profiles provide an unrivalled level of demand forecast detail and reveal opportunities for investment in services and infrastructure. Carriers, System Suppliers, and Marine Contractors will all find this report helpful in understanding future market dynamics.”

New Business Models for the Caribbean and Latin American Submarine Cable Industry first introduces the Reader to the commercial context and then identifies available Caribbean and Latin American submarine cable capacity through comprehensive profiles of every commercially operational submarine fibre optic cable in those regions.

This analysis of supply is then compared with a detailed analysis of demand for North American and intra-regional connectivity (broken down by Internet, Corporate Data, and Voice) in each country. Deficits in the forecast supply-demand balance are thereby identified.

The Report examines the past, present, and future commercial environment in the Caribbean and in Latin America as it pertains to the submarine fibre optics industry and draws conclusions about which business models are likely to be used for future submarine projects in these regions.
