The Economist Intelligence Unit expects real GDP growth to average 1.7% in the forecast period (2020-24) on the back of a gradual strengthening in oil prices. GDP growth should help support investment in the telecommunications sector. However, prospects for the sector will be tempered by the continuation and possible widening of international sanctions, together with broader political and economic uncertainty.

Russia's mobile penetration rate is high, at an estimated 155 subscribers per 100 people in 2019. We expect the number of mobile subscribers to grow relatively slowly during the forecast period, owing to market saturation, subdued household income and rising tariffs. Meanwhile, fixed-line connections will continue to decline, at a compound annual average growth rate of 1.9%.

There were an estimated 117.1m internet users in 2019. Based on an annual average growth rate of 1.7% the number of internet users will increase to 130.2m by 2024.
