Key Data

Mobile subscriptions maintained strong growth of 10.3% y-o-y in March 2015 to reach 7.673mn, despite a penetration rate of above 200%.

Monthly blended average revenue per user (ARPU) continued to decline in the face of intense competition, to KWD6.5 in Q115.

Take-up of 3G/4G data connections has been strong among Kuwait's wealthy consumers, and we forecast subscriptions to grow by 18.5% in 2015 to 4.173mn, equal to 53.8% of mobile subscriptions.

The broadband market also holds significant growth capacity, with penetration remaining low considering income levels in Kuwait and in a regional context. BMI forecasts the market to reach 889,600 subscriptions and a 25% penetration rate by the end of 2015.
