So what is IEMRs Forecast?

Total wireless subscribers in the Philippines will rise to 99.2 million in 2014

  • An increasing number of mobile subscribers in the Philippines are using prepaid SIM cards, and we forecast that the number of total mobile subscriber accounts in the country will increase from 72.8 million in 2009 to 99.2 million in 2014.
  • The largest mobile operator in the country will continue to be PLDT. We expect that its subscriber base will increase from 40 million in 2009 to 58.1 million in 2014.
  • We also estimate that Globe Telecom will have 27.8 million subscribers and Digitel will have 13.2 million subscribers by the end of 2014.

PLDT's subscriber market share will be rising over the next five years

  • Our model is predicting that PLDT's subscriber market share will increase from 55% in 2009 to 58.6% in 2014.
  • Also, we expect that Digitel's share of total subscribers will rise from 10% in 2009 to 13.4% in 2014.
  • On the other hand, we forecast that Globe Telecom's share will decline to approximately 28% in 2014.

ARPUs will continue to decline slightly from 2010 to 2014

  • We think that ARPU levels in the Philippines will continue to fall in the Philippines, partly because more people own multiple subscriber accounts.
  • Our model forecasts that PLDT's monthly ARPU will fall from about PHP 200 in 2009 to PHP 180 in 2014.
  • Also, we expect that Globe Telecom's monthly ARPU will fall from approximately PHP 180 to PHP 165 over the forecast period, 2009 - 2014.

EBITDA margins will remain high in the Philippines's wireless market over the next five years

  • Profitability, measured by EBITDA margins, is very high in the Philippines's wireless market compared to many other wireless markets around the world.
