Nicaragua: Country Intelligence Report

"Nicaragua: Country Intelligence Report", a new Country Intelligence Report by GlobalData, provides an executive-level overview of the telecommunications market in Nicaragua today, with detailed forecasts of key indicators up to 2023. Published annually, the report provides detailed analysis of the near-term opportunities, competitive dynamics and evolution of demand by service type and technology/platform across the fixed telephony, broadband, mobile, and pay-TV segments, as well as a review of key regulatory trends.

Total telecom and pay-TV revenues in Nicaragua, when valued in US$, will fall from US$710.3 million in 2018 to US$660.2 million by 2023 at a 1.5% CAGR. However, this decline is only indicative of the impact of currency depreciation on its value. In local currency, the market value is set to grow at a decent CAGR of 3.5% from NIO22.2 million in 2018 to NIO26.3 billion by 2023, supported by growth in mobile data, fixed broadband and pay-TV segments. Mobile data revenue will be the fastest growing segment with a CAGR of 8.6% in US$ (14.1% in NIO) over 2018-2023, driven by rising mobile internet subscriptions, particularly over smartphones and rising adoption of 4G services with higher ARPU. Fixed broadband revenue will grow at a 2.1% CAGR (7.2% in NIO) over 2018-2023 led by growth in DSL, cable subscription and increasing FTTx adoption. Pay-TV revenue will grow at a CAGR of 5.6% in US$ (10.9% in NIO) led by subscription growth across all technology platforms, including cable, DTH, and IPTV.
