The Taiwanese telecom market generated $12.5bn in service revenue in 2012, a 3.0% increase over the previous year. Mobile data was the most important driver behind this trend, generating $390m more revenue in 2012 than in 2011. Thanks to the widespread adoption of smartphones, coupled with smartphone users generating ARPU of $48, mobile data revenue grew by 23.5% in 2012. Most mobile data traffic is over GSM networks at present, with LTE networks to begin service in 2014. Going forward, we expect mobile data to lead the top-line growth of Taiwan’s telecom market, which will grow at a 12.9% CAGR to $4.2bn. We foresee Taiwan’s FTTH/B household penetration rising from 12.5% to 60.8% over our forecast period to bring in $1.5bn in 2018. We expect another data-based service, VoIP, to undergo the most explosive growth at a 16.8% CAGR. While cable TV operators engage in consolidation as saturation approaches, IPTV will lead pay-TV to grow at a 2.7% CAGR, comfortably outpacing the overall telecom market's 1.4%.
