Real GDP growth in Russia contracted in 2015-16-reducing investment in the telecommunications sector-before staging a modest recovery in 2017. A higher average oil price will continue to support a revival in economic activity in the near term. However, international sanctions (imposed on Russia after the annexation of Crimea), together with broader political and economic uncertainty, will constrain the pace of recovery in personal disposable income and investment, and, in turn, expenditure on telecoms services.

In 2017, at 176.1 subscribers per 100 population, Russia's mobile penetration remained high. The country has limited fixed-line subscribers, and this number is falling, whereas the number of internet subscriptions has been increasing rapidly, especially outside major cities, and it is forecast to grow at an annual average rate of 8.25% in the forecast period (2018-22).

The Economist Intelligence Unit expects that the number of mobile subscribers will grow relatively slowly, at an average annual growth rate of 1.6% during the forecast period, reflecting market saturation, sluggish expansion in household income and rising tariffs. Fixed-line connections will continue to fall, at an annual average rate of 4.2%.
