Jordan’s population of 8.7m as of 2017 makes it the 39th most populated country in the Africa and Middle East (AME) region. The EIU expects Jordan‘s population to increase at a CAGR of 2.7% over the 2017-2022 period to reach 10.0m by the end of 2022.
Total telecommunications service revenue in Jordan will grow from $1.2bn in 2017 to $1.5bn in 2022. This growth will be at a CAGR of 5.5%, primarily driven by growth in mobile data and fixed broadband segments.
Fixed voice revenue will decline marginally, from around $176m in 2017 to $174m by 2022, due to higher preference for mobile communications. Meanwhile, mobile voice revenue will grow at a CAGR of about 1.3% as users shift to OTT-based communications.
Mobile data revenue will grow at the fastest rate, from about $279m in 2017 to over $525m by 2022, driven by a steady rise in smartphone subscriptions, projected rise in adoption of connected devices and growing 3G/4G adoption. Orange’s ongoing LTE-A rollout will also drive mobile data revenue moving forward.
Fixed broadband revenue will grow from $117m in 2017 to $207m by 2022 driven by steady rise in DSL subscriptions and ongoing expansion of FTTx services by operators such as Orange and Umniah. Fiber broadband services will also benefit from the government’s national broadband plan.
