"Russia: Country Intelligence Report", a new Country Intelligence Report, provides an executive-level overview of the telecommunications market in Russia today, with detailed forecasts of key indicators up to 2023. Published annually, the report provides detailed analysis of the near-term opportunities, competitive dynamics and evolution of demand by service type and technology/platform across the fixed telephony, broadband, mobile and pay-TV segments, as well as a review of key regulatory trends.
Telecom service revenue growth in Russia over 2018-2023 will be driven by mobile data and fixed broadband segments. Mobile voice will be the largest revenue-contributing segment in 2018. However, the mobile voice will see a drop in its share of total revenue over the forecast period due to growing consumer shift towards OTT based communication solutions and reduction in voice tariffs. Mobile data will take over as the leading segment from 2022, led by rising mobile internet subscriptions, fast growing M2M connections, and growing adoption of 4G services. Going forward, mobile operators will focus on offering data-centric services and LTE network expansions, and prepare for 5G network rollout.
