Vietnam Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband Statistics and Analyses 2018-2022 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

October 3, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 3, 2018--The “Vietnam - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This report provides a comprehensive overview of trends and developments in Vietnam’s telecommunications market. The report analyses the mobile, mobile broadband, fixed broadband and converging media sectors.

After peaking in 2009 the fixed line market in Vietnam has seen a significant decline by 2017. Further declines are predicted over the next five years to 2022.

Growth has been flat in Vietnam’s mobile market over the past five years. Market growth has been restrained due to a mature and saturated market. Mobile subscriber growth is also expected to be relatively low over the next five years to 2022, driven by growth in the mobile broadband market.

By 2017, all five major mobile operators had been issued 4G licenses, and by early 2018 4G rollouts were well underway. 4G access will open up many opportunities for rural residents to learn, consume entertainment, find jobs and generally narrow the gap between urban and rural areas.

The fixed broadband access has been built on the back of an extensive Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) network, with the more recent focus being on fibre-based services. Subscriber growth in fibre continues to be strong.

Fixed broadband penetration in Vietnam remains low mainly due to a limited number of fixed lines and the dominance of the mobile platform. However the market has grown strongly over the past five years. Over the next five years to 2022 strong growth is expected to continue driven by rising fixed line penetration, in particular the rollout of fibre access.

The digital economy in Vietnam has been flourishing. With initiatives to promote e-commerce throughout the country. The government has been the driving force behind the country’s move into the age of the digital economy. It has been constantly emphasising the need to use e-commerce to improve the country’s economic competitiveness. The government has also been particularly active in the development of cyber laws, because of its deeply ingrained political culture of central control.
