Details

With revenue of $695.8m, or 5.7% of nominal GDP, the Nicaraguan telecom and pay-TV services market was the smallest in Central America. As we move forward, we project that telecom services revenue will expand at a 1.4% CAGR between 2015 and 2020, 0.2 percentage points above the regional average of 1.2%. Growth will be mainly supported by an increasing demand for data services, both fixed and mobile, which we expect to accelerate as mobile operators expand their network infrastructure coverage across the country and as the construction of a state-controlled national fiber-optic backbone network with the support of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) gets underway.

Key Findings
- The Nicaraguan telecom and pay-TV market generated an estimated $695.8m in service revenue in 2015, and we anticipate it will close 2016 at $713.3m, up 2.5% year-over-year. As we move forward, we expect the overall market to grow at a 1.4% CAGR during the 2015-2020 period.. Nicaragua closed 2015 with an estimated 6.4m active mobile subscriptions and a penetration rate of 101.4%, below the Latin American average (118.8%) but above that of neighbouring Honduras (83.2%). We expect that Nicaraguas mobile subscriber base will continue expanding during the 2015-2020 period at a 4.6% CAGR.

- We estimate that at year-end 2015, 34.5% of mobile subscribers in Nicaragua were on 3G plans, either UTMS or HSPA. The number of 3G subscriptions will double between 2015 and 2020, reaching 4.5m in 2020.

- At 5.7%, fixed-line penetration of the population in Nicaragua is the lowest in the region, substantially below the Latin American average (17.3%). Broadband penetration is also one of the lowest, standing at 4.4% at the end of 2015 (vs. 11.8% for Latin America).

- Nicaragua closed 2015 with an estimated 252,800 pay-TV connections and a household penetration rate of 19.0%, substantially below the regional average (42.1%). Cable is currently the most adopted technology in the market, accounting for 81.8% of pay-TV accounts at year-end 2015, followed by DTH/satellite technology, with 18.2% of the market.
