Emerging Markets - Mobile Communications - Latvia, Mexico, Pakistan, Romania, Slovenia and Ukraine

Synopsis

Archived report. There are around 50 countries worldwide identified by various organisations as Emerging Markets which means they have been highlighted as countries undergoing industrialisation and rapid growth. In this report, BuddeComm highlights six of the countries identified as an Emerging Market and examines the important mobile communications environment. The following report includes a compilation of recent information written by BuddeComm’s Senior Analysts’ on Mobile Communications in the Emerging Markets of Latvia, Mexico, Pakistan, Romania, Slovenia and Ukraine. For each country an overview of the mobile communications market is included as well as key mobile subscriber statistics, major operators and insights into the regulatory authorities and issues. Please note: BuddeComm offers a broad range of unique reports on telecoms in the emerging and developed markets beyond those included in this report.

Key developments:

Latvia’s mobile subscribers enjoy the cheapest mobile call rates in the EU; Mexico boasts the second largest mobile market in Latin America after Brazil; Although the rate of expansion in mobile subscribers in Pakistan picked up slightly in 2011, the market has clearly entered a slower growth period; Romania’s competitive mobile market is served by five mobile network operators utilising a mixture of GSM, CDMA and WCDMA technologies; Slovenia’s mobile market is one of the most competitive in Europe given that three mobile network operators (MNOs) and a number of mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) operate in a country with a market of only two million people; Growth in the Ukraine has been driven by heightened competition following the entrance of foreign players and Ukraine’s broader economic development.
