El Salvador: Increased Mobile Data Usage Supported by 4G Rollouts and Expansion to Boost Telecom Growth

Summary

In 2016, El Salvador generated telecom service revenue of US$1.2bn (equivalent to 4.4% of nominal GDP), a decline of 1.3% over 2015, due to a drop in fixed and mobile voice revenue. The mobile segment continued to be the largest contributor to overall telecom market revenue, accounting for 68.1% of total telecom revenue in 2016, owing to growth in mobile data revenue.

It is expected that overall telecom service revenue to grow at a CAGR of 2.2% during 2016-2021. Growth will be driven by data services, mainly mobile data revenue, owing to increasing adoption of mobile broadband services aided by operators’ 4G network expansion and consumption of data-centric services. The fixed/mobile revenue split will be dominated by the mobile segment during 2016-2021, with the fixed segment’s share of overall revenue to increase by 0.3 percentage points during 2016-2021, due to rising fixed Internet broadband revenue.

The top two operators, Tigo El Salvador and Claro El Salvador, which provide fixed, mobile and pay-TV services, accounted for 68.6% of total service revenue in 2016. Tigo El Salvador will continue in its leadership position through 2021. Operators are focusing investments on 4G network launch, network extension and appealing mobile data packages and value-added service offerings to drive revenue.

With 53.2% of all subscriptions, 2G technology held the largest share of the market in El Salvador in 2016. However, its share will decline owing to adoption of 3G and 4G services and operators’ focus on offering affordable data plans and smartphone devices. Going forward, we estimate the share of 3G subscriptions to increase to 61.5% of the total subscription base by year-end 2021. 4G subscriptions will reach 2.3m by year-end 2021, or 27.3% of total mobile subscriptions in El Salvador. Operator focus on LTE network investment and expansion along with the growing demand for faster data services will boost LTE uptake.

Broadband lines will grow at a CAGR of 7.8% during 2016-2021, with penetration of population to increase from 6.4% in 2016 to 9.0% by 2021. Growth will be driven by government initiatives, such as “Connectivity Component” and “Digital Agenda for Good Living,” and operators’ double-and triple-play services to improve broadband adoption.
