The Philippines’s telecommunications industry has been dominated by the PLDT-Globe duopoly over the last two decades. Telecommunications infrastructure investments have been underwhelming while recent reforms and the launch of a third mobile operator will bring competition and innovation in the sector.

The author forecasts that mobile subscriptions will continue to grow strongly in the 2020-25 period and fixed broadband subscribers will also continue to grow and increase its household penetration over the same period. The ratio of the telecommunications sector revenue to GDP is declining from a peak in 2005, sliding down every year since then.

Expanded coverage, greater affordability, service improvements, increased data usage and smartphone penetration are the main drivers of growth in the telecoms sector. The country continues to expand its fibre-optic network and 4G coverage, backed by strong investment in capital expenditure. Investment in the telecoms sector is growing to its highest in 2020 with a peak expected in 2021 with new mobile market entrant DITO Telecommunity due to launch that year.

Mobile subscribers numbers are growing strongly and the back of population growth, increasing affordability and new regulation lengthening the prepaid load expiry dates to 12 months.

The publisher expects the overall telecoms market to grow strongly through to 2025 after a marked slow down in 2016 and 2017 due to legacy voice and SMS revenue pressure partially offset by mobile data growth.
