Mobile
Saudi Arabia

With a smartphone installed base of over 4.5 billion in 2019, 5G access made commercially available in 25 countries at the end of 2019 and expected to reach 154 countries in 2025, mobile markets form undoubtedly part of the most innovative and actively growing sectors.

The inescapability of mobile Apps, used in all activities, from e-commerce to banking, transport, video or gaming, demonstrates the growing role taken by mobile services throughout sectors and regions. The reports aims at disclosing the operating results of such operators, in terms of subscribers, revenues and key indicators such as 4G, 5G, data-only (or USB dongles), and M2M subscribers. Mobile network operators (MNOs) and mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) are regarded separately to provide a complete understanding of market dynamics.

An in-depth analysis of the market structure, evolution of operators’ market shares and country forecasts enables to understand the historical and future key challenges underlying mobile companies’ strategies outcomes.

The indicators include:

  • Quarterly subscriber count by actor and country
  • Quarterly revenue evolution by actor and country
  • ARPU by actor, by country, and comparative evolution
  • Group structure analysis
  • Additional indicators: data-only mobile subscriptions, MNO and MVNO networks, 4G and 5G subscriptions
  • Penetration rate of subscriber numbers and additional KPIs over population

Graphics and visualization tools enable to grasp the market dynamics from first sight. Full data history and forecasts are summarized in downloadable tables, PDF or PPT.

The Mobile industry in Saudi Arabia

In Saudi Arabia, the mobile market has reached saturation and the mobile penetration has even declined in recent years to reach 114% of the population in 2019. The total number of mobile subscriptions (active SIM cards) is meant to keep increasing over the next five years. However the growth should be slower because of the fingerprint requirement, applied to all subscriptions, implemented by the regulator in 2016. A myriad of operators is competing, Saudi Telecom Company being the market leader, followed by Mobily, Zain, Virgin Mobile and Lebara Mobile. The development of the competition, as well as the gradual end of messaging (replaced by OTT such as WhatsApp) should have an impact on mobile ARPU and make it drop slightly in the upcoming period.
