Russia: Country Intelligence Report

Summary

Russia is the world’s largest country in size and hosts a population of 146.4m as of 2017, including Crimea. The EIU expects the Russian population to decline to 145.4m by 2022 due to a low birth rate, high death rate and low immigration. The EIU expects Russia’s nominal GDP to grow at a CAGR of 3.9% in 2017-2022, from USUS$1.53trn to US$1.9trn. Growth will come from government efforts to foster new investment and from consumer spending.

Telecom services revenue growth in Russia over 2017-2022 will be sustained by the mobile data, fixed broadband and VoIP service segments. Mobile voice will remain the largest contributing segment until 2022, but its share will keep declining. Going forward, operators will focus on data-centric services and invest in LTE-A, 5G and FTTH deployments to boost broadband penetration in the country. Operators’ push for digital solutions such as M2M/IoT, 5G and high-speed broadband networks will create significant opportunities for vendors and investors in the coming years.

It is estimated that the Russian telecom services market will reach US$21.8bn (Rb1.3trn) in 2017, a 1% decline over 2016 in local currency. Forecast total revenue to reach US$21.0bn (Rb1.4trn) by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 1.4% in ruble over 2017-2022, as mobile and fixed broadband subscriptions increase and pressure on ARPS eases, driving up revenue.

MTS will remain market leader in terms of mobile subscriptions in 2017 with a share of 31.8% in 2017. The “Big Three,” MTS, MegaFon and Beeline, will jointly constitute 84.2% of the market. Operators will focus on LTE upgrades, carrier aggregation, LTE-A and 5G network development as key competitive strategy.
