Key Findings

* Chile is the second most developed economy in Latin America, measured in terms of PPP-adjusted GDP per capita ($22,630), just below Puerto Rico's ($23,615).
* With estimated revenue of $6.5bn, or 2.6% of GDP, the telecom and pay-TV services market in Chile was the sixth largest in Latin America. We expect telecom service revenue will expand at a CAGR of 2.3% between 2014 and 2019.
* We estimate that Chile closed 2014 with 27.0m active subscriptions and a penetration rate of 152.3%, well above the Latin American average (119.5%). We project that Chile's mobile subscription base will expand during the 2014-2019 period by a 3.1% CAGR pushing the penetration rate to 172.3% by year-end 2019.
* Pyramid Research projects mobile service revenue will grow at a CAGR of 1.6%, from $4.2bn in 2014 to $4.6bn in 2019, with mobile data being the key driver for overall mobile service revenue.
* We expect that narrowband penetration will continue declining over the forecast period, reaching 10.8% by year-end 2019. This decline will be mainly due to a decrease in the number of PSTN lines resulting from fixed-to-mobile substitution and the increase of broadband alternatives, such as cable and FTTH/B.
* Chile ended 2014 with an estimated 2.9m pay-TV accounts and a household penetration rate of 63.6%, below Argentina (80.9%) and Venezuela (72.2%) but above the Latin American average (45.7%). We project a 5.7% CAGR in subscriptions from 2014 to 2019, which will push pay-TV penetration to 80.0% by year-end 2019.
